Try running the company file on a new(er) PC? Does the error occur on all PC's? You can also a. Un-Install (or Repair) your QB installation files [[Control Panel >> Programs & Features] or perform a Windows Search for: Add or Remove Programs] b. check your QB.EXE Compatibility Settings c. rename a .ND file (in your Company Files Folder) from [filename].ND to [filename].ND.OLD d. Upgrade to Windows 7 or 10
