can't load old company file on upgrade from QB Pro 2016 to QB Pro 2019

I upgraded from QBPro 2016 to QBPro 2019.  When I try to open my company, after entering my password, QB sends four  errors:

1.  "something went wrong while updating your credentials - login again to continue" - moving forward from there...

2.  "QuickBooks unable to complete this operation and needs to restart.  QuickBooks will restart automatically" - then...

3.  "Unrecoverable error code 33227 01145" - then...

4.  "Fatal Error M=2188 L=1145 C=315 V=0"

 

I have tried re-installing and a program called QuickBooks File Doctor but no success.   Please help!

Let's troubleshoot the issue so you can open the company file, Yadav.

 

Errors related to new installations are usually caused by damaged QuickBooks components. We have a tool that helps resolve errors like this. It is called the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic Tool. You can run this tool first to see if it fixes all of the errors, and proceed to the additional solutions if the same thing happens.

 

Here's how:

  1. Download the QuickBooks Install Tool.
  2. Save the file on your Desktop when prompted.
  3. Close all open programs, and then run the QuickBooks Install Tool.
  4. It may take up to 20 minutes to complete depending on your internet speed and computer's performance.
  5. After running the QuickBooks Install Tool, restart your computer to make sure the components are properly updated.

You can also refer to this article for more troubleshooting steps to resolve issues with opening a company file in QuickBooks.

 

Please keep in touch if you need more help with this.

After a lengthy talk and diagnosis by tech specialist it was identify that only a Data service team of QuickBooks will be able to fix the issue. Anyone facing this issue don't waste time and just talk to Tech Specialist and submit to Data Service to fix the issue with file. I hope I will have a quick turnaround from Data Services. Will update as I get the resolution.

I'll help you fix it so you can open your company file, Clarschan.

 

There a few reasons why you're unable to open the company file:

  • Data is damaged or corrupted.
  • The same file is opened on a shared network.
  • Incorrect file type.

We have a different set of steps to fix it.

 

The first is to update QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release. This way, you can download the latest fixes and updates for the program. 

 

Next is to check the file you're opening. You'll have to open the file with .qbw extension. 

 

If you're still unable to open the file after trying the steps, check this article and follow steps 3-9.

 

You can keep in touch after trying the recommended troubleshooting steps.

Thank you.  I ended up talking with the help desk and eventually had to send the file to QuickBooks to have it fixed.  I believe they said that the data was corrupt.  It took about a week but everything has been running well since then.
