There are a number of suggestions on the web, some as simple as changing the compatibitliy settings to Windows XP SP2 or 3, or running as an administrator, or removing and re-installing the application. However, these didn’t help in this instance.

The solution is changing the high security settings of Internet Explorer in the Windows Server Manager.
Here are the steps to get Quickbooks/Reckon Accounts working for you:


  1. Log onto the server as an Administrator.
  2. Open the Server Manager and select “Configure IE ESC” from the right hand side under Security Information.
  3. Then turn off both options for Administrator and Users.
  4. Now open Quickbooks / Reckon Accounts

If you have problems following these steps or would prefer that an IT professional perform these changes or if you this doesn’t help, please call one of our IT professionals for assistance.
