I installed QB Enterprise 10, and setup a company.
I am not succeeding in getting the ODBC Driver to work. I got to File/Utilities/Setup ODBC. When I press Test Connection to Quickbooks I get this error:
[QODBC] QB Begin Session Failed. Error = 80040408, Could not start QuickBook

(This happens regardless of whether I try to use a specific Company or Company that is now open in QB).

Hi Jesse,

Im not a QODBC expert, but these two links have some really useful suggestions to
troubleshoot. I would read them both before trying anything out.

this link is a link to Flexquarters Forum (the developers of QODBC)

Yes, installed as on the link you posted. (I'm using win 7 ultimate 64.) But while the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe shows QuickBooks Data in the System DSN and also when I get the ODBC windows in MS Access and also in the VB Demo program  - in each case when I try to access the ODBC I get the error above.

How did you install qODBC? If you still have File>Utilities>SETUP You need to install from within the program, NOT the flexquarters link.

How many versions of QB do you have installed?

Are you the system and QB Admin when trying to run it?

the QB I have installed in Enterprise 10 Trial. Someone told me that Trial won't work with ODBC. So that might be the problem.

Direct from FLEXquarters - "Your trial version of QuickBooks must be registered before using QODBC."

It's regarding installing on a 64bit system.
