When selecting the Peachtree Company ID in the Peachtree Link Setup, the drop down list is either blank or showing the incorrect Company Files.

The Peachtree INI file for your installation of Peachtree is pointing to the incorrect DataPath. The DataPath should point to your network path if you are on a network installation of Peachtree.

How do I change the datapath and/or program path in Release 2004 and higher?
To change the datapath and/or program path of Peachtree Release 2004 and higher, you need to uninstall and reinstall Peachtree. In prior releases you could edit the ini file to accomplish this, but starting in Release 2004 you will need to uninstall and reinstall, following the steps below. If you are having a problem with following these steps please contact Customer Support.

Uninstall Peachtree 2004 or higher

Make sure that you have logged on to the computer with Administrative privileges. Peachtree must be closed on all computers before you begin. If any errors occur during these steps, write them down and call Peachtree Customer Support.
1. Insert your Peachtree program CD for version 2004 or higher. After a short time, you should see a setup menu.
2. From this menu, select Peachtree Accounting.
3. After the Installshield loads select the radio button for Remove and click Next.
4. You will be asked "Do you want to completely remove the selected application and all of it's features?" Click OK.
5. When the uninstall has completed (length of time for this can vary), you have successfully uninstalled.

Reinstall Peachtree 2004 or higher

6. Insert your Peachtree program CD for version 2004 or higher. After a short time, you should see a setup menu.
7. From this menu, select Peachtree Accounting.
8. After the Installshield loads, click Next.
9. Select the radio button appropriate to the License Agreement and click Next.
10. On the next screen, you will see three options. Of these three options, select Advanced Setup.
(Note: For purposes of clarity, you will be selecting Advanced Setup. This is not usually necessary for future Peachtree Installations).
Click Next.
11. On the next screen you will need to specify your Destination Folder and your Company Folder.
12. Your Destination Folder should show the following (not case sensitive) C:\Program Files\Peachtree
13. Place a check mark in the box titled "Place my company accounting data in a different folder".
14. Make the Company Folder text box read whatever your datapath should be. If you are not yet sure what your datapath should be, contact Peachtree Customer Support for assistance.
15. You can either browse to this directory using the Browse button, or you can type it in.
16. Click Next. On the next screen all components will have a check mark next to them. Unless you were instructed to uncheck any of these, leave them all checked and click Next.
17. On the following screen, you will leave everything as it is and click Next again.
18. After the installation has completed (allow up to 45 minutes to complete), uncheck any boxes that are checked and click Finish.

You have just installed Peachtree.

If you were instructed to perform these steps on more than one computer, repeat the above instructions at each computer. If on a network, it is a good idea to make sure these other computers have proper mapping. If you are unsure, see a local support technician or your network administrator for assistance.

If applicable: when you have finished, you may need to re-register your Peachtree. The latest tax service and updates related to Peachtree will also need to be reinstalled.
