If upon opening your QuickBooks 2011 program you’ve been notified that Release 8 is available and ready to download, DON’T. Among other fixes, Release 8 was supposed to repair some deficiencies in Release 7. This newest release will cause problems such as:
- Error 1603, forcing you to reinstall QuickBooks
- QuickBooks won’t open or stops working
- Rebuild function doesn’t work correctly
- Incorrect quantities of inventory items when using Quick Reports
Wait until Release 9 comes out. Call me if you’re suspicious that something isn’t right with your QuickBooks software. I have a few simple tests or fixes that will determine and resolve this.
