Feature update - reboot required to use this feature: QuickBooks updated this feature to work with your version of Internet Explorer. Please reboot your computer to use this feature.

Solution 1: Run Quick Fix my Program from the QuickBooks Tools Hub.

Step 1: Download and install the QuickBooks Tools Hub

The QuickBooks Tool Hub helps fix common errors. You'll need to close QuickBooks to use the tool hub. For the best experience, we recommend you use Tool Hub on Windows 10, 64-bit.

  1. Close QuickBooks.
  2. Download the most recent version ( of the QuickBooks Tool Hub. Save the file somewhere you can easily find it (like your Downloads folder or your Windows desktop). Note: If you've installed Tool Hub before, you can find out which version you have. Select the Home tab. The version will be on the bottom.
  3. Open the file you downloaded (QuickBooksToolHub.exe).
  4. Follow the on-screen steps to install and agree to the terms and conditions.
  5. When the install finishes, double-click the icon on your Windows desktop to open the tool hub.


Note: If you can't find the icon, do a search in Windows for QuickBooks Tool Hub and select the program.


Step 2: Run Quick Fix my Program

The Quick Fix will shut down any lingering background processes QuickBooks may be using. It will run a quick repair on your program.

  1. In the QuickBooks Tools Hub, select Program Problems
  2. Select Quick Fix my Program.
  3. Open QuickBooks and run Loan Manager or Cash Flow Projector.
