Hi there, limuzi400.

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. I'm here to help get rid of the Error 1406 so you can install your QuickBooks Desktop successfully.

 

The Error 1406 happens when there is an update from a firewall or any security program installed on your computer. Temporarily disabling your anti-virus or other security software can help resolve this error.

 

If disabling the anti-virus didn't work, let's download the QuickBooks Tool Hub. This hub contains different tools to help fix common QuickBooks Desktop errors including installation errors.

 

I'll walk you through the steps below:

 

  1. Close QuickBooks.
  2. Download the most recent version (1.4.0.0) of the QuickBooks Tool Hub. Save the file somewhere you can easily find it.
  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.
  6. Select the Installation Issues tab.
  7. Click the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic Tool. Let the tool run.
  8. When the tool finishes, restart your computer to ensure the components are properly updated.

For the complete process on fixing installation errors, please check out this article: Fix common problems and errors with the QuickBooks Desktop Tool Hub.

 

As always, you can reach out to our Care Support Team if you'd like someone to be with you as you go through these steps.
