I am facing this problem when installing QuickBooks Enterprise 2017 in my windows 7 pc.
We want to help you get past this error and get your QuickBooks 2017 installed. @qbteachmt, could you take a look at this question and see if you can point Enam_ctg in the right direction? Thanks for your help!
I have found Net framework missing, outdated, or corrupted components to be the source of this type error. Check your windows update history. If you don't have automatic updates turned on you ca always check for updates. The Net framework updates, at least for Win 7 were optional and would not normally be installed during an auto update
