If you see any of the errors below, follow the links and steps to fix them:
Step 1: Download the QuickBooks Tool Hub
The QuickBooks Tool Hub helps fix common errors. For the best experience, we recommend using Tool Hub on Windows 10, 64-bit.
Download the most recent version (220.127.116.11) of the QuickBooks Tool Hub. Save the file somewhere you can easily find it (like your Downloads folder or your Windows desktop). Note: If you've installed Tool Hub before, you can find out which version you have. Select the Home tab. The version will be on the bottom.
Open the file you downloaded (QuickBooksToolHub.exe).
Follow the on-screen steps to install and agree to the terms and conditions.
When the install finishes, double-click the icon on your Windows desktop to open the tool hub.
Step 2: Use the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic Tool
Open the QuickBooks Tool Hub.
In the tool hub, select Installation Issues.
Select QuickBooks Install Diagnostic Tool. Let the tool run. It can take up to 20 minutes.
When the tool finishes, restart your computer.
Step 3: Update Windows
Window updates prevent and often fix install errors.
Check out Windows Update: FAQ on how to update your version of Windows from Microsoft,
Once the update finishes, restart your computer.
If you could open QuickBooks before you saw the error, Open QuickBooks and your company file.
If you weren't able to install QuickBooks, install QuickBooks Desktop again.
If you can install and open QuickBooks, you're good to go. If you continue to see issues, move to Step 4.
Step 4: Manually fix Windows components
If the QuickBooks Install Tool and the update didn’t fix the error, you can repair specific Windows components yourself.
You should only do these steps if you’re an IT professional, confident Windows user, or have help from Microsoft support experts.
Repair or reinstall Microsoft .NET Framework
Repair Microsoft MSXML
If you can install and open QuickBooks, you’re good to go. If you still see problems, move to Solution 3.
Solution 5: Use Selective Startup to install QuickBooks Desktop
To get around third-party apps that may block the install, like antivirus and antispyware programs, install QuickBooks while in Selective Startup (Safe Mode).
If you still have issues, we recommend you reach out to an IT professional. These errors mean there may be a general issue with Windows.
If your computer can connect to the internet outside of QuickBooks Desktop but you have difficulties updating your payroll or performing tasks, you may need to configure Internet Explorer in your computer.
Note: Before troubleshooting, you may want to try the task on another computer to see if it is successful and verify your network (if any) is compatible with QuickBooks.
Make sure you update to the latest version of Internet Explorer, IE 11, if you are using Internet Explorer 10 or or versions older.
QuickBooks Desktop writes messages about what is happening in QuickBooks to a specific log file.
In Windows, the file is named Qbwin.log
The log file contains QuickBooks Desktop messages, as well as information created by the Verify Data, Rebuild Data, and Condense Data utilities. It does not show General Protection Fault or Invalid Page Fault messages or messages or errors from other programs. New entries and errors are added to the end (or bottom) of the log file. The file includes date and time stamps with each log entry to help you identify the most recent entries.
Detailed instructions QuickBooks for Windows
QuickBooks for Windows generates a separate QBWIN.LOG file for each QuickBooks version within each QuickBooks user. Each time you start QuickBooks, it renames the old QBWIN.LOG file and creates a new one.
