Ask a Financial Software Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, I'm Robert and I'll be helping you with your financial software question.
quickbooks should allow you to use the same license number with no problem.
Try doing a clean install where you delete all traces of the program ( but not the data ) as below. If that does not work please don't give me a bad rating but instead let me know exactly where you ran into a problem or the exact message on the pop up if it comes back. I think the clean install has a better than 50% chance of fixing it if you use the utility and instructions in the link below. But if it doesn't I will be happy to help you further tomorrow
QUICKBOOKS CLEAN INSTALL
try doing a clean install with the instructions on this page. It should not effect your data but i always recomend making sure that you have a good back up and / or a copy of your data file ( it ends .qbw ) in a safe place such as a flash drive or another folder.
It requires that you have a copy of the quickbooks install cd or download. If you downloaded from intuit you can get another copy free.
If you purchased from Intuit directly you can download again for 3 years.
For quickbooks go to https://www.intuit.com/login/
click on cart orders downloads
sign in with your intuit id and password. ( usually your email address is the id )
click on downloads and unlocks
That should give you a list of any intuit product that you purchased online within the last 3 years with a download button.
This page has complete instructions for the uninstall and reinstall INCLUDING a clean install utility that you want to download and run.
