You can find the repair feature in the control panel add/remove programs window.
Open your control panel, click on add/remove programs, scroll down to QuickBooks and click remove (it won't you will be prompted to either repair or remove). Have you disk handy in case it prompts you for it.

If you are trying to reconcile to your bank balance, you should not be reviewing the "deposit detail" report.

1) Go to "Banking" then "Reconcile"
2) If the "Opening Balance" is incorrect, then close the "reconcile" window and go to "Reports" then "Banking" then "Bank Reconciliation Discrepancy" report. (This report will reveal what changed after your last successful reconciliation).
3) If the "Opening Balance" is correct, then you want to press "continue" to focus on the bottom of the window, which reveals "total deposits marked as cleared". If you have duplicates, you will see them on the right side of the screen, but the ultimate goal is to have a "Deposits Total" (in QuickBooks) that agrees with the "Deposits Total" (per Bank Statement).

The "Deposit Detail" report is a "Journal Report" to show you details of historical deposit records, Has nothing to do with "reconciling" your current bank balance.

Sounds like hard drive errors due to possible hard drive failure.

Explore the QuickBooks 2005 CD, go into the QuickBooks folder and double click quickbooks.msi - this will install QuickBooks without checking for the old/outdated Flash Player 7.

Here is how to load and activate Quickbooks 2005 on Vista...

First of all, if you already have an activated copy of QuickBooks 2005 on another computer open it and go to "help" "my license information" and print this out so you have the details needed for activating your reinstalled copy (you don't need a fresh activation key and you may have trouble getting one as QuickBooks 2005 is no longer supported by Intuit).

On your new Vista computer, insert the QuickBooks CD but cancel any program install windows that pop up. Go to my computer and find setup.exe on the CD, right click and select the option to "run as administrator"

Once installed, navigate to the QuickBooks folder on your hard drive (typically C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks) right click on QB32.exe and on the compatibility tab select both Disable visual themes" and "run as adminstrator". Now open this file to run QuickBooks and select "file" "Update QuickBooks" to download and install all updates. QuickBooks will not work properly until you have downloaded the updates, closed and reopened the program.

I had problems with activation but I got around this by unplugging my network cable so that I had no internet connection. If you run QuickBooks without an internet connection, when the screen pops up asking you to "activate" click next and the screen to enter your license details will appear. enter your details (printed out from your previous installation) and you are done. You can restore the internet connection and use QuickBooks 2005 normally.

Good luck!

Step one is run scandisk. If you have a cross linked or corrupted file it will sort that out automactically. Step 2 is to google "where is the quickbooks repair feature".....odds are someone has used it before. Step 3.....save your Quickbooks database (in at least two places) and delete and reinstall Quickbooks if all else fails.

Best thing is contact with the seller

Usually a license number, product code error. Often seen on pirated software, but can also come from a damaged install.
Be careful, trying to reinstall an older version like this can result in the product going back to an old release, and the update files are no longer available.

Intuit... | Answered on Jan 06, 2017

This usually means the license number and the product code do not match the product. Often seen in cracked/pirated software.

Intuit... | Answered on Jan 06, 2017

You probably opened an old file. You will need to find the current file that you were using. Use the search and search for all files ending in .QBW
Check the dates they were last used (you don't want the one with the most current date since that was the old file that was opened.)

Intuit... | Answered on Jul 16, 2016

Correct. That version was made well before Win xp. It does not understand the folder arrangements for Win 7 or 8. You would need a newer version.

Intuit... | Answered on Mar 10, 2016

the short answer is YES but you have to get it from the makers of Quickbooks themselves.

Create an invoice to anyone for anything for 1.00. remove the To Be Printed check.
Save it.
Then delete the invoice.
To be printed is a sticky setting that is held based on the last transaction..
