Only been using QB Enterprise for less than year, but have loaded files from another server and created users on both RightNetwoks & inside the various QB companies, so somewhat familiar.
Problem is I created a new company, created the GL, added users with permissions and login passwords... but the "company list" when they bring up hosted QB doesn't show the new company I see on my computer. I called the priority QB help for QBE yesterday and after a long que was hung up on - probably their accident. I've also searched the Right Networks page for this issue, looked at QBE menus. I can't figure out how to add this new company to their login choices.
The users have access to QB, so I don't think its a hosted network problem, seems like a QB E problem.
Let's check to verify if your new company was set to Host Multi-User Access. This way, your other users can see and access it.
Let me show you how to get there.
If you see Stop hosting as an option, it means your company file is already in multi-user access. You'll want to re-scan your database server manager. It fixes error relating to multi-user access.
Once you're done, you can let other user's try accessing the company file again.
Feel free to refer to this article for more information: Set up multi-user network.
Stay in touch if you need further assistance. I'll be around to help.

Thanks for coming back, Dirkdaddy.
The article you've provided has the recommended solutions that can fix the error. We can download and run the QuickBooks File Doctor first so you'll be able to access your file in a multi-user environment.
Let me show you it's done:
After the tool finishes diagnosis, close QuickBooks File Doctor and open the company file again.

Get back to me if you have other questions. I'm always here to help.
Maybe this is getting too far down the rabbit hole. This was a new setup company with no data except a GL setup and users. Why would be it corrupted? Anyway, back to trying the solution.
I copied the link to the hosted RigntNetworks virtual PC windows session and used chrome to download the small file. When I run that file on RightNetworks session it asks to save the program file somewhere, but when I go to try this in various places its always denied as part of the security setup no doubt.
Perhaps it would be simpler to create another company and copy the GL into that, unless I'm going to have the same problem with that as I did this one?
Hi there, Dirkdaddy.
There are a couple of reasons why a company can be damaged or corrupted, regardless if it's a new one or not. You may want to proceed in creating a new company file and import your GL into that. That'll also help us isolate the issue if if the file was damaged or not.
In case you're getting a similar result in the company, I would recommend contacting our Technical Support Department once again. They have additional tools that can double-check what's really causing the issue. Here's how:

Solution was - eventually - The users on RightNetworks would have to call RN and request that specific company file be added to their company file selection menu. RN did go extra distance and save having to have all users call in separately by adding to their menus all at once with my support call. I am not sure why we got a cryptic QB message or why RN didn't have more instructions on adding company to other users menu, but this took about 2.5 hours to accomplish which is costing my clients. Hopefully this Query will help others avoid the same pitfalls. Cheers!
QB did give prompt support but as this was something caused by RN it wasn't readily a support issue they could resolve easily.
