Quickbooks 2009 - Error -6123, 0
Posted on 2013-06-11
I have had Quickbooks 2000 through 2009 and really never had any problems with it. However, recently I had to swap out my faulty hard drive. The drive was replaced and the operating system (Windows XP Pro 2002, Service Pack 3) installed. The re-installation of all software has worked fine, except for Quickbooks.
After installation, the installed version on this drive will not open the company file. It simply displays a message after trying to open the file ... Error -6123, 0
According to Quickbooks Support Knowledgebase, this error indicates a difficulty finding the database on the network. However, this is s single user copy and the database in resident on the same drive.
I have uninstalled, and re-installed, always the same result. I have run the QB file doctor and it finds no problem with the database. I can open the database fine in Quickbooks on my laptop ... but not on this desktop.
Any ideas on what else I might try ... QB will no longer support the installation. Art
