I need help to register the 2022 Quickbooks desktop trial.  I have installed it and now I just get this page,  ( see screenshot 1 )  When I click on any of the links on that page I just get a blank pages,  ( see screenshot 2 )  What do I do now?


I uninstalled and reinstalled the program already.


Thanks for the advice.

It's nice to see you here, @userdoug1,


We want to make sure you're able to activate your license without any issues. You can register the product without the validation code using the manual registration. Go to the Help menu then About QuickBooks Desktop. When you see the green logo, press CTRL + R + P on your keyboard.


If this will show you a blank page again, close and reopen QuickBooks. Make sure to use the Run Administrator option.


You can also use this link for activation if you have the US version: Register QuickBooks Desktop using Intuit Account.


Let me know if you have successfully registered the program using the suggested steps. I want to make sure this is resolved and I'll be right here to assist you anytime. Have a good one!

Thanks for the reply.  However, I can not make any of your suggestions work for me.

1. I can not see the help menu.  The blank page covers it and locks everything in QBD up.  The only way to close it is to "end task" from the Task Manager

2. "Run as administrator" makes not difference

3. I need to use the Canadian version


Any other ideas?

Have you purchased a license for QBD 2022? Uninstall your trial version and reinstall the program to use your license code in the installation wizard from scratch.


Another option, purchase the new one time (outright) license for QB Desktop 2021.
