Quickbooks desktop support application users may face issues while opening up the QuickBooks application. It may or may not give the error message however if it gives the error message then ensure to read the message carefully and try understanding it whether it’s the QuickBooks program/ application is not opening or the Database file/ Company file is not opening. Isolation and narrowing down the issue is most important while troubleshooting with Quickbooks desktop support application or QuickBooks not working situation.
QuickBooks Not Opening
Multiple QuickBooks Instances Opened
The very first thing to check is the instances of QuickBooks application working, i.e. at times one
instance of the Quickbooks desktop support is already running on the taskbar in the minimized state and we tend to open another instance which may result in error while opening QuickBooks. How to check is very simple step, Right click on the task bar and click to open the Task Manager then go to the Details tab and find out how many instances are open for QuickBooks Program. Close all the instances and then close the Task Manager. Refresh the desktop by pressing F5 button from keyboard and then try to open the QuickBooks application again.
QuickBooks Updates and Disable Hosting/Multiple Hosting
Now since we have verified that its single instance running and still QuickBooks is not opening then we need to isolate the QuickBooks Program from QuickBooks Data file or Company File. We also need to ensure here that the version of QuickBooks we are using is updated to the latest release or not. This time when QuickBooks is opened ensure to double click QuickBooks Icon with CTRL Key pressed on the keyboard and keep CTRL key pressed till Company file selection screen pop’s up. Now open the sample company file. Still getting error then recommended is to call QuickBooks Technical Support Phone Numbers and report the scenario to QuickBooks Pro-Advisor. QuickBooks Pro-Advisors are equipped to take the access of clients’ computer remotely and then repair QuickBooks Application. After QuickBooks reaches the Company file selection window select the desired company file. Go to file menu and select Utilities and then select Stop hosting multiuser Access. Also ensure that there is no other computer is hosting the company file except the server. So turn off all the hosting from other computer except Server. Now again try opening the QuickBooks program and see if you get any error while opening QuickBooks.
