Often, the QuickBooks desktop installer will not accept the serial number and/or product number, the fields are too short. QB support pages advise changing font scaling, but often this does not help. The best workaround so far, has been to copy the serial and product numbers to Notepad, then paste them in all at once, rather than trying to type them in directly.

QuickBooks Now Using Sybase SQL at its Heart
article #1383, updated 1234 days ago
I don’t know when this began, but I just happened to see Task Manager on a server running QuickBooks, and it is very clearly running “SQL Anywhere Network Server (32 bit)”, which is some version of Sybase SQL Anywhere:
The last time I checked this, which was a while ago, it looked like a much more hidden version of Pervasive SQL. This may be a major change at the heart of QuickBooks, hopefully for the better. One does wonder if we could use those command-line options to advantage…
Sending email via QuickBooks
article #1356, updated 1382 days ago
As of version 2019 (and possibly before), QuickBooks has a new feature: native support of Office 365 webmail and some other major email providers. When users send email via QuickBooks, go to Preferences, Send Forms, and instead of choosing Outlook, choose Webmail, and then set up integration with the user’s Exchange Online account. Works much smoother, faster, more reliably.

QuickBooks May Need IPv4 to be the Dominant Protocol
article #1240, updated 1894 days ago
If you are getting persistent H303/H505 errors or the like, check the .ND file corresponding to the QuickBooks database you are trying to load. If it has an IPv6 address within, that’s probably the problem, we need to set IPv4 as dominant on the server:
Reboot is required before the setting takes effect.
QuickBooks and Server 2012 R2 Essentials
article #1236, updated 1912 days ago
Deep in this page:
we have a strange piece of input stated as being specifically and only to Server 2012 R2, to prevent H202 errors and the like. We are to do the following:
- Stop the Base Filtering Engine in services.msc
- Perform a Scan in the QuickBooks Database Server Manager, after making sure that appropriate folder(s) are selected
- Start the Base Filtering Engine in services.msc
