Hello TBK1,

Please tell me your specific Windows version & edition (eg, XP Home or Pro & specific service pack level; or Vista or Windows 7 along with service pack level & whether 32-bit or 64-bit)

IF in doubt, use Start, select RUN, then type in


Then write down the entire line that starts with Version and post that here

It would appear a .net framework was removed that your Quickbooks needs to run. That is my assumption & please keep in mind I'm in no way a QB expert.

Keep Quickbooks closed. Don't start it for the duration. But tell me your version number of Quickbooks.

There's 2 issues to deal with here. 1) flushing the pending auto-updates (which you'll re-update later)

2) restoring a workable .Net framework from MS download center.

Get me the details I asked for.

XP service pack 3. ok. Have patience & as I said, keep Quickbooks closed.

I'm going to use baby steps & will take several replies between us.

This is to flush your Automatic Updates download folder.

Housekeeping and cleanup steps:

Bring up Windows Explorer / Tools / Folder Options/ select VIEW Tab and look at all of settings listed.

"CHECK" (turn on) Display the contents of system folders.

Under column, Hidden files and folders----choose ( *select* ) Show hidden files and folders.

Next un-check Hide protected operating system files.

Use Windows Explorer. Go to C:\Windows\System32

If you have a sub-folder called * Catroot2 * (not Catroot) rename the

folder to CR2OLD. Or delete everything in that folder. Just make sure you do the right one.

(to clean up downloaded files for Automatic updates / Windows Update)

From main Windows Start menu, select RUN, type in



type in

net stop wuauserv


Go to Windows Explorer.

Look on your system drive (usually C ) and look at the Windows folder name. Like Windows or WINNT.

Modify following as appropriate.

If your Windows folder is C:\Windows. Look at this folder


If you find files in there, delete them. That folder is where files are stored from W U downloads.

Next: with any of your open programs closed (those that you started)

Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop

  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista or Windows 7, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • IF prompted to Reboot, reply "Yes".

Let me know when you are done.

Close any installer window, & any Quickbooks screen.

Place the Quickbooks setup CD/DVD in the drive.

Using My Computer {Windows Explorer}, browse all the main sub-folders.

Look for one named

then drill down

Look for a sub-folder named DOTNETnn {where nn is some number}

If found, look for a dotnetfx.exe

If found, double click that to install the .NET framework from it.

I suggest you make a backup of your system before proceeding further.

Then, go to the Microsoft Download Center (the main source to get .Net Framework)

get, save to your HD at a unique (new) folder the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2


Once the download completes, then install it.

Then see if you can successfully open QB without a fail issue.

Hello again, sorry to hear you're still having issues.

As for how to backup, if you wish to simply back up your personal files (ie pictures, documents, videos etc) then you can simply copy/paste them. However, if you wish to create an exact duplicate of your hard drive on your external drive so that the backup can be used to completely restore your system to its current state then you can use the free tool and method described in this tutorial.

After you finish your backup please follow Maurice Naggar's instructions.

Thanks :P

You need only 1 --- not all 3.

I seriously doubt that you have an Itanium processor. The ia64.exe is for those that have Itanium micro-processors.

Do you have a 64-bit Windows? if so, the x64.exe would apply.

And "you" would know if you did have a 64-bit edition!.

You more than likely have a typical 32-bit Windows, so the x86.exe would be the one to get.

If you're having an issue with size of backup, we could get by for now with just backup of the registry before you apply the updates. Use this

1. Go >> Here << and download ERUNT

(ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)

2. Install ERUNT by following the prompts

(use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)

3. Start ERUNT

(either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup)

4. Choose a location for the backup

(the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable).

5. Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked

6. Press OK

7. Press YES to create the folder.

Do the ERUNT backup & then go forth to get the Net Framework.

ERUNT is an excellent addition to your toolset. Keep it. Use it to make periodic snapshots (backups) of the system registry.

Hello TBK1,

That is good news that you can run QB.

Make a backup now of your system, and I'd suggest a separate backup as well of QB to DVD/CD.

Make regular backups of your system to removable media: DVD, USB external hard drive, etc.

From main Windows Start menu, select RUN, type in



type in

net start wuauserv


Close the command prompt

Check in at Windows Update and install any Critical Updates offered.

Make certain that Automatic Updates is enabled.

How to configure and use Automatic Updates in WinXP:


You are good to go now. Regards.
