How To Fix The QuickBooks Abort Error


QuickBooks abort error is nothing but an issue faced by QuickBooks users. The problem occurs when they are on their way to manage tasks. The users are notified with the message as it pops up on the computer screen.

There are many reasons why an individual might face the issue. It could either be due to a missing or damaged OBWSER.INI file. On the other hand, you might come across the problem only when the hard drive is corrupted or the program files are damaged. Besides, the root cause might also be when you have forgotten or have neglected to update the accounting tool to the new version.

How to fix the abort error

Before you start off, you must make sure that the desktop is connected in the network. You also need to check the hosting status of the respective system in case the software is managed by numerous users.

So, here’s what you need to follow.

Step 1: Click the ‘File’ option and proceed by choosing ‘Utilities’.

Step 2: Later, select the option, ‘Stop Hosting Multi-User Access’.

Do note that it’s equally essential to configure Windows Firewall so that it works well with QuickBooks Desktop. Follow the steps carefully because the firewall may tend to block the access to files associated with QuickBooks.

NOTE: Remember to adjust the settings on the host computer and the system that plays the role of the server.

Step 3: Switch to the multi-user mode, and open the company’s data file.

Step 4: Apart from enabling the ‘Open file in multi-user mode’ option, you must find a solution for multi-user network issues. You as a user can execute QuickBooks File Doctor that’s easily available.

Do also be sure about the regional settings as per the US locale.

Procedure for fixing the issue

Firstly, you should download the QB diagnostic tool and run the QuickBooks Install diagnostic tool. This step would surely help to repair the damage you might face with several components.

You should then restart the system and launch the desktop version. If the problem persists, then it’s a good idea of disabling the antivirus application for some time.

Later you should change the name of the QBWUSER.ini file. Make sure you hide the files when you save the QBWUSER.ini file. Moving further, you should rename the Entitlement Data Store ecml  file as well.

Post renaming the files, try opening the company file. If you face the issue, then copy the file to some other location rather than a place within the network.

In the end, if you face problems with the file, then there’s no other option rather than restoring it from the backup. Don’t forget to create a Windows admin user.
