QuickBooks Enterprise 12.

I have lost the ability to print forms in QB 12 enterprise.  I searched for the Qbprint.qbp file and it doesn't exist.  Printing forms the day before worked fine?

QuickBooks uses the Windows subsystem to print. Do a repair of QuickBooks to see if that restores printing. If not, uninstall QuickBooks, restart the computer and then install QuickBooks again. Update any patches and test.

Any other suggestions?  we use QB daily and it is a payroll week and would prefer not to have to uninstall and reinstall?  What do you mean by repair?  is there a repair option in QB?
The traditional way of repairing QuickBooks is to find the Intuit Program Folder and locate the file reboot.bat. Open an administrative command prompt, navigate to that location and run reboot. That repairs QuickBooks.

On modern operating systems and with newer versions of QuickBooks, you can go to Programs and Features, locate QuickBooks, click on it, select Uninstall/Change and then in Change, select repair. I think either approach works.

we use QB daily

I understand and I have QB open myself right now. But are you implying multiple QuickBooks and ALL are afflicted the same way?  I am not clear on this.

Thanks for the suggestions and the quick response.  I am repairing as i type this.
QB support said that all QB programs have the Qprint.qbp files.
Sorry, never finished my last question, our server doesn't show any
Qprint.qbp files and thoughts on that?
See if the repair replaces / adds Qprint.qbp. I will look for it myself. I don't find it on my system at all (QB Premier V2012 AND V2013). Both versions print properly to local and network printers.

OK, I found it.

On my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit system, qbprint.qbp is in Program Data. I see versions for V2010 through V2013 even though I uninstalled the first two versions.

See if you can find the comparable location on your Terminal Server.
