Quickbooks Pro 2017 desktop will not open (operating windows 10)

Sending good vibes to you, nancyPID.

Let me help you with opening your QuickBooks Pro 2017 and get you back on track.


There are several possible reasons for this issue and multiple solutions to resolve it. It could be that there's a damaged program file, damage windows operating or corruption on your hard drive.

Solution 1:

  1. Download the QuickBooks Install DiagnosticTool.
  2. When prompted, save the file to the local Desktop.
  3. Close any open programs and run the QBInstall Tool. It may take up to 20mins to complete, depending on your internet speed and computer's performance.
  4. Restart the computer after running the tool to ensure the components are properly updated.

Solution 2:

  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. Open your QuickBooks Desktop. If the error persists, temporarily disable your anti-virus. Refer to the anti-virus' help documentation or IT professional for steps on how to disable your anti-virus program.
