  • Patch Lady – Seeing any issues with QuickBooks?

    Posted on September 5th, 2020 at 15:20 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    There’s not much detail here but I’m seeing some chatters about crashing on QuickBooks 2019 and 2020 on Windows 10 2004.  Lyle reached out to me and said “KB2267602 installs on Win 10 2004 and then will cause QB Enterprise 2019 & 2020 versions to crash when trying to run any report and if you try and open the check register nothing happens.”  (2267602 is a defender update)

    In one QuickBooks venue they recommended running the app as admin (ugh) and that was a workaround.  One of the symptoms was that QB check register wouldn’t open.

    Are you seeing issues with QuickBooks?  Let me know in the comment section if so.

  • Patch Lady – Quickbooks and emails

    Posted on June 16th, 2018 at 00:46 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    I was posting up the master patch listing tonight and I spotted this KB and I know this impacted people recently:


    After updating Outlook to Monthly Channel Version 1805 (Build 9330.2087), external applications may crash when interacting with or sending email.

    For example, you may get an “Outlook is not responding” error with Intuit QuickBooks. Possible solutions for that specific error can be tried via this Intuit QuickBooks Help article: Crash: Com Error in QuickBooks Desktop


    This issue is fixed in Monthly Channel Version 1805 (Build 9330.2118) and higher. To get the latest update immediately, open Outlook and choose File > Office Account > Update Options > Update Now.

    Microsoft made a service change for Outlook on June 11 2018 (3:45 PST) to mitigate instances of a crash that happens if you’re using a POP or IMAP account. Because of the way the service changes are implemented and also because the issue involves 3rd party interaction with Outlook, you may have to restart Outlook up to three times to ensure that the service change is applied. These restarts ensure that the service change is recognized, then downloaded, then applied successfully to your install of Outlook.

    If anyone is seeing this on NON Click to run, let me know.  But again this points out you need to move to the semi-annual non monthly version of Office 2016 as there are less issues.
