QuickBooks - Could not Start QuickBooks
This information applies to :
January 27, 2010
Error 2147220472, could not start QuickBooks occurs when QuoteWerks attempts to integrate.
QuickBooks is not open when QuoteWerks is attempting to integrate.
Some integrations require QuickBooks to be closed, but QuoteWerks needs it open before the two programs can communicate. Once QuickBooks is open, the integration should work fine.
QuickBooks was recently installed and the system has not yet been rebooted.
Reboot the system, then launch QuickBooks and QuoteWerks and try again. Sometimes control files and registry entries QuoteWerks needs to communicate with QuickBooks do not fully complete their install without a reboot.
Another potential cause is related to multiple APIs running on the same machine, such as the API for the MultiCurrency Edition and the API for a non-MultiCurrency Edition. Intuit reports the potential for conflict and this can prevent QuoteWerks from determining the correct version to integrate with.
Per Intuit, completely remove all references to the MultiCurrency version from the computer and try again once it's gone. This may take more than just a standard uninstall - contacting Intuit for details on how to ensure QuickBooks has been completely uninstalled is suggested.
