How to fix errer #403

Are you seeing this error after doing and Update?  And do you NOT use Payroll or any other QB Services?


If this is the situation, you can ignore it.  QBs has never fixed the BUG when you run an Update and it tries to update a Service you do not use (like Payroll) and it can't update because you don't have it.  So instead of knowing you don't have it and moving on, QBs gives you an error which makes you think something didn't update correctly.
