How to convert DB engine to Release in Quickbooks Enterprise 9?

Posted on 2010-08-19
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I'm currently using Quickbooks Enterprise 9 and there seems to be a bug. When I press F2 to check which release I am running, it is hidden behind the "Services Information". The window cannot be resized, and the text is not selectable. Is there another way to check which release I am currently using that does not involve F2?

I do know which DB engine I am running, but I can't find any documentation on which DB engine is associated with each release. Is there a way to convert the DB engine number to the Release number?

Please help! Thank you!

does pressing alt-tab get you to the correct window?

Hi rmtechteam,

I really appreciate your response, but unfortunately that wouldn't correct the problem

I've added an image so that you can get a better idea of the situation.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks again!

Raising or lowering the resolution has the same result.

other thoughts:

-can you highlight then copy/paste into notepad?
-adjust system font under control panel/display?
-networked version of QB? can you try on another system?

This is a known issue with Intuit, there is no "fix" for it other than them patching it. The DB engine your on has only to do with what version of QB you running, not what release so that won't help.

What you can look at, in the Product Information window, further down is a box that says Versions Used on File. Scroll to the bottom of that window and it will tell you what release and when it was updated.

Hope that helps.
