When I tried to open a file from the training CD, the warning window came out that I do not have sufficient permissions to the specified folder...What should I do?

 I followed the help instruction, but I don't know which version of QuickBooks that I should add and I can not find the security tab.

Copy the file off the CD into a local folder such as your Documents folder.  Then open it from there.

Good day lovely0116!

Let's get this sorted out.

There are several possible causes why you're getting that message when opening a company file. It could be that:

  • The company file .qbw is located in a protected location such as the root of the C drive or Program Files on a Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 machine.
  • The file may be in a restricted location unlike the QuickBooks company file default location: C:Users/Public/PublicDocuments/Intuit/QuickBooks/Company Files
  • The access to the folder where company files are stored is not set up properly.
  • The folder where the file(s) are stored in may be corrupted.
