I'm installing a new server (Win Server 2016 Std.)  and considering installing a Hyper-V machine as a Remote Desktop Server to host Quickbooks Enterprise 2018.  
I've called Intuit support to see if they have installation and configuration suggestions or documentation and found them to be be (predictably) unhelpful.  They claim that they no longer support Remote Desktop deployments for QB Enterprise and suggest signing up for their hosted service (which sounds remarkably like Remote Desktop!).
I don't want to waste company time and money on server setup and CALs only to find that it doesn't work.
Any current users/admins out there with recent experience that can comment, advise, endorse or dissuade on this topic?
Any input is appreciated.

As of Quickbooks 2017 R5 and Quickbooks 2018 I am getting a licensing issue in XenDesktop

Citrix says its a 3rd party application issue
Quickbooks says they don't support Citrix

We have been using Quickbooks in XenDesktop for years just recently having issues.

what i have figured out so far
installing all additional packageds with the quickbooks 2018 installation doesn't affect the licensing service.

once quickbooks is installed

A netstat will show the following missing

picaSvc2.exe  1494
picaSvc2.exe 2598

Event viewer doesn't show any errors

citrix event viewer shows license not available when users attempt to login
if you use rdp instead of citrix your able to function fine.

I have read on the http://ficoscore.com/education/ website that "Between all three bureaus, there are 19 FICO® Scores that are most commonly used by lenders. The score version that matters most to you depends on the type of loan you’re interested in and where your lender pulls your scores. You can use the chart below as a guideline."

Are there any websites I can visit that will provide me with all of my current 19 FICO® Scores?

The websites I currently visit like Bofa.com, discover.com, and the credit bureau websites provide only one version of the Fico credit scores and I'm interested in seeing what my current 19 FICO® credit scores are.

What websites or services will allow me to do this?

I am able to download transactions from our bank into a Quickbook file or a Quicken file (not CSV nor Excel).  I do not have either of the Quickbooks or Quicken software.  Is there any good way to import either type of file into Excel?

Thanks!

HI Experts,

I have been using QB Desktop 2012 until recently, but noticed that I could not open my previous HST filings. I thought that this was because of the  old version of QB and I am running Windows 10, so I decided to migrate to QBO.

QBO's view is more extended and I see that all of the HST periods (from and to) are off. I file quarterly, but see that I have periods sometimes for 1 month. Actually as I was filing using QB for desktop I always printed my summary, and the periods on the printouts all are correct.

I have chatted many times with Intuit, but the issue does not seems to be resolved.  Now in QBO when I click "View Summary" for any period listed, I see my header, but nothing else. No line numbers, no amounts, just blank report.

One rep told me that I need to request for my HST periods to be reopened, which I did, then refile withing QBO.  When I go to refile, starting with my very first periods, only my Sales (line 101) is correct, and everything else is $0.00 - probably because everything is paid.

I am now thinking that my QB file was corrupted from my desktop version, but any idea how to fix this? Who can I contact?

As a developer - And, I don't want to do this, but is it possible to get backend access through API or even SQL and maybe adjust the periods manually - maybe that will fix everything? Or is there another versions of QB that I can run that will give me SQL access?

Or am I pretty much in trouble and need to open a new company …

About 18 months ago I researched the difference between the online version and the desktop versions of QuickBooks.

It became apparent that the online version is a very scaled down subset of the desktop product,

I am wonder has there been any chance since?

I have a customer who has a really old version of QB , I think 2006, he is buying a new Laptop, latest version of MS Office, etc,  I thought that the online version might suit him as he spends a lot of time out off the office as he is a small builder. He spends a day in the office per week, the rest of the time he is on site managing small construction jobs, it might be useful for him to be able to access his QB quotes, ices, etc. Or to generate invoices while off site.

Nore, he is based in Ireland, and ideally the Onlive version would work for local taxes (Revenue, VAT, etc.)

Thanks,
Robbie

When creating a "Summarize Payroll Data" report from Quickbooks to Excel, the "State Wage Listing" tab defaults to the wrong "Tax Tracking" filter.

It used to default to "SUI Company", but now defaults to "Medicare Additional Tax", and the desired outcome is that it defaults to "SUI Company" again. Office 2016 is used.

Intuit support provided varying feedback. One technician we spoke to seemed to know the issue and indicated a Microsoft Update might be responsible, other technicians weren't sure, or suggested we submit a feature request to the development team.

Has anyone come across this before, and found a solution?

Hello Experts,

I service a company that uses Quickbooks Enterprise 17 Wholesale & Manufacturing for everything. Starting in April they started having issues with their standard balance sheet report being out of balance. The detailed shows in balance when you run it though. I can repair and rebuild the file and it finds the same issues every night and fixes them in the rebuild. The balance sheet starts out fine in the morning but when they start doing invoices and inventory and such, it goes out of balance. It is never out of balance with the same amount. One day it could be $2000 and another day it could be $10k. I have ran the QuickBooks file doctor and it finds no issues with the file. I even force the data sync fix and it says the file is fine. All machines are new and running SSD's. There is no network latency from the workstations to the QuickBooks server. I even dedicated a windows 2012 server to being the QuickBooks server and it still did the same thing. The QuickBooks files are on a separate SSD drive and that's the only thing it has on it. They are running the latest version of QuickBooks Enterprise 17. I am at a loss.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

Instead of error trapping or hard-coding for non-updateable fields when using QODBC, let VBA automatically disable them when forms open. This way, users can view but not change the data. Part 1 explained how to use schema tables to do this. Part 2 handles schema table exceptions.

Hi Andrew! Thank you for your kind words and for editing the article. I don't know how I got along without QODBC in the offce. It would take volumes to document all the things I do with it but at least a few articles about the simple things might help a few people.

I've been researching credit cards the past couple of days and there are so many different choices.

I see AMEX is highly recommended, higher yearly fee, along with Chase INK. Card is paid in full each month so interest rates don't matter.

I don't travel much for business. The business is all Web Consulting.

Any suggestions on what you recommend or to stay away from?

Thanks

We have a customer running QB Premier Edition 2016 and for the past year - sporadically - they will get H202 errors and cannot access multi-user functionality - it will run in single mode but not multi.  For the first few times after it started happening, we would reboot the server and it seemed to fix it.  However, when that didnt work, we did some research and it said to stop the DNS server, start the QBDatabase26 service and restart the DNS and it works.  Sometimes we can get for a couple of months and other times it happens a couple of times a week.  Is there a permanent fix?

We have a client that has Windows Server standard 2016 and requires Quickbooks enterprise setup.

The challenge is they have an all Mac environment. Possible and hopefully going to Windows.

Is it feasible with the current setup that we can install Quickbooks enterprise for 8 users and have them remote desktop into the Windows server to use the software?

A customer of mine has purchased a new Macbook Pro and wants me to move all her files from the pc over to the Macbook.  I have never done this before.  Will the format be compatible with the Macbook? is there a conversion process that must be done first?
And what about her quick-books files.  On her pc she had the desktop version and now she is switching over to the online mac version.  Is this something that Quick-books support will have to help us with?

I have a user that occasionally uses Quickbooks hosted on another PC. When trying to open the company file it wants to do an update but gets stuck between 10 & 15%. I have performed a manual update, but am having the same problem when trying to open the file.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I have been running Quick Books -2016 Desktop for over a year. About a month ago I received this Error Message: Could not initialize properties.  Error 3371, Status Code -11118. Quick Books could not load the license data. This maybe caused by missing or damaged files.

1. I installed Quick Books on another machine with no problems.
2. Reinstalled on the "Problem" machine and received the same error.
3. Installed "New" version of Windows 10, on reformatted drive on "Problem machine" - received Error message 3371.
Not sure what to do next. Quick Books tech support guides don't offer assistance, without a hefty service charge

A strange situation that has suddenly occurred. From what I can tell we have not changed anything to cause the issue.  Server is a Windows Server 2016 standard.  The clients are Windows 10 x64.  When pcs first boot in the morning, one of the three mapped drives has a red X in the drive mapping when viewed in file explorer.  If you double click the drive letter you can still access the contents.  However, the red X never goes away.  The only way to rectify the situation is to manually disconnect the drive.  Which from what I have seen doesn't actually remove it from the file explorer view.  However, if you then reboot, then the drive mapping appears normal.  In addition, there was once instance where suddenly in the middle of the day, the red X reappeared for one user.  This has been going on for about a week and a half.  The worst part of it is that the Quickbooks 2017 application does not seem to like the red X situation.  If the drive mapping has the red X, then Quickbooks will not let users open any of the datafiles on the server.  However, once the drive is disconnected and the pc reboots, Quickbooks works fine.  I am looking for any advice as to what could be causing this issue and how to correct it.

I want to import an invoice into Quickbooks Online, however I have a few specifications that are not working.
1. I want to separate the time and expenses. So the time will be under the normal category and then under the reimbursable will be all the expenses.
2. We have a contract amount column, which would be set at the beginning of each customer, then should carry out to all the invoices for that customer.
3. Prior Billed which would detect the totals that have been previously invoiced.
4. Total billed column that would tally all the that has been billed for that category thus far as well as the current billed.

Attached is a sample of our invoice. Is there anyway to make this invoice as a template in QBO?

there's a couple 'items' (really comments / information) that I put on each invoice.  I have them set as items in the items list  and choose them each time I make an invoice.  Tedious!  (things like 'don't forget - we offer this service or that service....'  It's a few lines of text.

Is there a way to have an item already in an invoice when making a new one (control N or similar).  Yeah, there's a comment box at the bottom of the default invoice templates, but the verbiage for these items I want to add is just too much - that box would be  bigger than the items area : )   and that text is on each page. I just need to have the info show 1x on the invoice.

I have a very odd situation for which I'm looking for assistance.

I have a client with a server running Server 2012 R2 Essentials.  They use WSE RemoteApp to allow remote users to access QuickBooks Enterprise 16.  This works fine for several users, except for one who just recently started having problems.  He can connect to the server and log into QuickBooks, but QB will abort moments later with an Unrecoverable Error.  The Code is 19758  66888.  I'm not finding anything online about that error.

What is particularly odd about this is that it only occurs with this one computer.  I try the same thing on another computer running the same version 1703 (and build) of Windows 10 Home, from the same location (have tried 2 different locations), using the same login and QuickBooks credentials with no problems.

I have installed a new hard drive in the laptop and reinstalled Windows 10 from scratch and the same symptom occurs.  The BIOS and drivers are up to date with no errors.

When I reinstalled Windows, I did copy user data (Documents, etc.) from the old drive.  I thought that might somehow be the issue, so I created a new user on the computer.  It shows the same error.  Both users are local admins.

The only common element with the failures is this specific computer.  The error is coming from QuickBooks.  I'm not seeing how something in this computer can cause the application error in the host computer.

I added a new Windows user on the server as well as a new QB …
