Quickbooks Pro will not start

I ran into a problem recently 04/22/08 with my Quickbooks program. I would click on the program’s icon to start it and get the “Quickbooks is loading ….” screen/prompt, then it would disappear and return again. Then it would disappear and never start. No error messages.

After researching my problem, through other forums, it was tied to a Miscrosoft .Net 2.0 update that failed. This was connected to this issue.

Specifically, if KB110806 shows in your Windows update as having failed, you will probably experience this same issue.

This has also affected Turbo Tax.

After struggling to figure this out and searching for a fix, Quickbooks Support has finally posted a solution.


Follow this support document, do as it instructs and your Quickbooks will open once again.

There is no need to uninstall Quickbooks before working through this solution. My computer had also downloaded .Net 3.0 – there is no need to try and uninstall 3.0 before stepping through the solution to KB110806. Just do it as it states and it should work for you.

My system is running WindowsXP Pro. Service pack 2.

Good luck!

So you want to create WordPress themes huh?

This looks like a great resource to figure out how to create my own wp site.

“Creating a WordPress theme from scratch is not hard. I’ll hold your hand through it. Tutorials on this topic have been written before and the WordPress website also has guides for you to follow. But are those tutorials and guides really helpful to you when you don’t understand the lingo? Even I got lost while reading the WordPress guides. ”

This is a great book available online –

“This page gives you access to all of the scripts in our book, listed by chapter and task names. We’ve given you two ways to use the scripts; if you want to see what a script does, click the name of the script, and a new window will open and run that script. If you want to view the code, or copy it for your own use, click the “View Source” link next to the task.” JavaScript for the WWW Visual Quickstart Guide, Tom Negrino and Dori Smith
