I can't get into Turbo Tax 2011. I have the printed copy but I wanted to re-enter the info for my own benefit. LETTER FROM IRS says it is incorrect and I owe $$. I also can't find my 2011 disk - found the case but disk was gone. It still shows on my computer, but will not open.''HELP
Hi my name isXXXXX would like to assist you with your question. I am an expert here on in the computer field.

How are you doing today?

Do you still have the Turbo Tax icon on the computer? Do you mind if I remotely share your screen to take a look at what's going on?

If that's okay:

Click the above link, A download should begin. If it asks at the bottom if you want to run or save choose Run

This will open the Application. When it open a 9 digit number will be at the top (should look similar to this format(NNN) NNN-NNNN

Reply to me with the 9 digit number

have you found out anything or am I too impatient?

Oh sorry Frances, I have not connected yet. Can you resend the 9 digit number but add spaces after each block of 3 numbers? Our system automatically blocks out what it assumes is a phone number. The reply I have from you says XXX-XXX-XXX instead of the numbers

Thank you so much for your patiences Frances! :)

Strange same error. Try this for me Frances. Exit with the X. Re-open from the desktop icon. It should make a new 9 digit number. Try sending the new one.

I think the old one timed out.

I'm totally lost - is there a puone number where I can call in my question?

I can still help you, I am unsure why it is not a valid number. It should only be a 9 digit number. We unfortunately do not offer phone service at the moment.

Does the Turbotax icon still appear on the computer for? What file are you opening that does nothing? What does it say?

Went to prograns on my computer - found 2010,2011,2012 -clicked on 2011 - got

error code 1334.

Intuit Tax Installers Setup.MsiHelper Reinstall using

product code MsiPro---- sounds like greek to me.

Ah Frances I have seen that exact error before with Turbo Tax. Most of the times is means a file in the 2011 program (not your tax return) has become corrupt.

However there are a few things we can try

First. Try Right Clicking the Turbotax icon and choose Run as administrator

If that does not work, the only other thing that may work would be a repair install. It may or may not require the TurboTax CD. If it does no worries. I did manage to track one down that is very cheap and it will fix the issue.

To do that

Hold the Windows Key (looks like a flag on your keyboard) and press r

In the run box that appears type in appwiz.cpl then push enter

Click TurboTax 2011
in this list then click Change

Try the Repair option

If is still does not open I recommend getting the 2011 copy. I found it for 11.00 with free shipping on this page

This CD will repair the corrupt files and allow you to open the 2011 return.

It's ashame that Intuit does not allow you to open a 2011 Tax Return in TurboTax 2012. That would make things a lot easier.

If you get the CD and need any help please reply here anytime and i'll be here to help you in any way I can Frances.

Okay no problem, give me 2 seconds Frances :) Did that repair install help? Or did it want the CD?
I managed to find the Deluxe for $15.88. When it arrives please let me know if I can help you in any way at all. I am online all the time, most likely when you reply I'll be able to send you help/advice within a few minutes (usually from 9am est until 11pm est) 7 days a week.
