Hi Guys,

I have a windows 2k8 server which is stand alone. installed quick book and that works fine for administrator.

but a user can not lauch it. it he/she lanches quick book opens with error and does nt let them use it.

I have

Made the user even member of local Administrator's groups still can not use it

did research on QB and they you have to readjusct Internet Explorer settings to low inorder that to work.

I try to change the IE settings to low when logged in as that user. despite that user is memeber of local administrators group.

How do i resolve this or enable user to change the settinsg or change the settings to low so that user can user the QB.

P.S: i have also tried changing the IE setings to low by logged in as Administrator but when i logged in as that user. settings are on high for that user.

prompt assistance will be highy appriciated.

It must be Quickbooks 2008 or newer.  If it is, add an allow rule for the qb database engine service to the Windows Firewall.
Here is a great article that should help:

Hi,
That did not work. i can tel you i have done following and it did not work
- allowed the QB through firewal lexception
- shared the QB company files folder and every one full control
logged off with admin rights user
logged back on , tested and DID NOT work

Just to let you know that ThiS QB is locally installed on the server and not shared any where. IT is ONLY ONE SYSTEM AND AND ONE USER want to access it .

Curretnly only Administrator can launcg it.

I know i  Decrease the IE settings to LOW for that user it will just work fine. BUt i can not Chnage the IE settinsg for that user wben though that user is a member of admin Group.
