QuickBooks is quite a versatile application that organizes your expenses, monitors your cash flow, builds invoices, and keeps you tax compliant. And it doesn’t end there; the application has a separate set of features catered especially to freelancers that help them focus on their work without worrying about managing transactions. Today, most of the business houses or professionals around the world, are using QuickBooks to take care of their financials.

But keeping all this glory apart, QuickBooks too is an application at the end of the day and is prone to the threats/errors as other software applications. It can get caught up in messy errors that can often get too tough to handle. Take the case of the QuickBooks Unrecoverable error 2010 / 2014 for example. Many users of this otherwise user-friendly software have been left baffled by the QuickBooks 2014 unrecoverable error. The application displays the following error before crashing.

Common ways to resolve the error

1.Stop QuickBooks from opening all windows at start-up

One of the most tried-and-tested methods of avoiding this problem is to stop the application from opening all windows at start-up

Press the Alt key while double-clicking QuickBooks application icon.
When the system displays the prompt for the user password, release the Alt key and type in your password.
Click OK, and when the application launches, press the Alt key again.
Release the Alt

Note: When the application launches, remember to close all windows or simply click ‘Close all windows’ from within the application before exiting.

2. Open a sample file

If you are still unable to open your company file without facing the error, try opening a sample file as follows:

Press the Ctrl key while double-clicking QuickBooks application icon.
Continue pressing the Ctrl key until the application displays the ‘No Company Open’
Click ‘Open a sample file’.
Select one of the sample files and open them.
Note: If the application prompts you to initiate a restore/update operation, click on ‘OK’. If the sample file opens without any error, the company file that is throwing the error might be damaged or corrupted.

Copy the company file to your Desktop

Changing the location of the company file you wish to open is also an option you could try. The reason why these solution works is the limitation on the storage path of the file. Perform the following steps to change the location of your QuickBooks file:

Open the folder in which your company file is located and use the Locate option to find the QBW file.
Copy and Paste the file on Desktop.
Launch QuickBooks while pressing the Ctrl key until the application displays the ‘No Company Open’
Click on Open, browse to the file you copied on Desktop and click Open.

Use Auto Data Recovery

Restore the company file using the Auto Data Recovery option.

Troubleshoot the QuickBooks application

If all the above options fail, try troubleshooting the QuickBooks application.

Run Reboot.exe to re-register QuickBooks objects in Windows.
Manually repair the Microsoft.NET file framework installed on your system.
Perform a clean re-install for QuickBooks.
Run the QuickBooks Component Repair Tool to repair all your damaged files and components.

Update QuickBooks

The QuickBooks 2012 R14 service pack allows you to fix all unrecoverable file errors. To update your QuickBooks installation with this service pack, perform the following steps:

Click Help –> Update QuickBooks.
On the ‘Update QuickBooks’ screen, click Update Now.

Using Stellar QuickBooks® Repair Software

If none of the above methods is able to resolve the error, it is indicative of the fact that your QuickBooks company file has been severely damaged/corrupted. To repair it and extract all vital data from it, you’ll need a professional QuickBooks repair software.

In our opinion, Stellar Repair for QuickBooks Software is an extremely competent product to accomplish this task. The tool repairs severely damaged or corrupted QuickBooks data files (QBW) without hampering the file components. Further, it recovers all information of Customers, Company, Vendors, and Employees saved in QBW files.

An issue in the hosting environment could also be the reason.

Develop by Intuit, QuickBooks is accounting software which has completely changed how the business accounting is done in the industry today. Mostly used by small and medium businesses, QuickBooks has both clouds as well as on premises. QuickBooks has several variations including Enterprise, Accountant, Pro, and Premier.


While QuickBooks is a great software for businesses, it’s also prone to errors. This is the reason why Intuit has provided a separate utility tool called QuickBooks File Doctor to repair files and get rid of the errors but the utility is very basic and it cannot really get rid of all the errors.

That is why the first thing that a user needs to do is understand why QuickBooks is actually throwing the error. We have compiled together the reasons and solutions for the most common error which is thrown in QuickBooks – Error Code 6000.

The QuickBooks Error code 6000 has several variations that arise due to different reasons. In this post, we will be discussing three of those,

QuickBooks installation was incomplete
A company file (.qbw) has been damaged
The folder where the company file was located has been damaged
Hosting of QuickBooks has been enabled on both servers instead of just one
A server doesn’t have the correct permissions to access company files
The user who is trying to access the company files doesn’t have the correct permissions
Service QBDataServiceUserXX where XX is the version number of QuickBooks is trying to access company files but it doesn’t have the correct permissions
Security software on the server is blocking access to the company file
The solution to this error depends on what the user was doing when this error was thrown. Here are some of the cases when the error could have occurred-

User was trying to open a company file which is stored on a Windows Server
There are a number of solutions that you can try in case you were trying to open a company file on a Windows Server-

Download QuickBooks File Doctor and try to resolve the error through it
In case QuickBooks was installed on more than one system, try configuring one to store the company file
Edit the host file with the name of Windows server and IP address on the system where company file was stored
User was trying to open a company file which is stored on a Linux Server: Configure Linux Database Server manager, specify the directory Initord.conf and then restart the system. Now ping the server by going to command prompt.
User was creating a backup when this error occurred: Create a manual backup and store it in a new folder under C drive
User was trying to restore a company file: If your file extension is .qbw.adr or .qbm, change it to .qbw. If that doesn’t work check for nay problems with the file path or the file name.
QuickBooks error 6000 -80

QuickBooks error

Here are some of the possible causes of error

Instead of a network or local drive, the company file is located on an external storage
Incorrect folder permissions of the folder which has the company file inside it
The company file is being opened by QuickBooks by referencing a mapped drive
If you are facing this error, the first thing to do is restart QuickBooks with increased permission. In most of the cases, the error is resolved after restarting and there are not any further steps needed.

If the error is still not resolved, try the following solutions one by one

Launch QuickBooks File Doctor to see if the problem can be resolved with it
If the company file was stored on external storage or media then move it to the local or the network drive and then try to open it in QuickBooks
If the company file was referencing a mapped drive, then you need to change the settings and select the correct server. To do this, go over to the file menu and click on “Open or Restore Company”. Now select “Open a Company File” and click on “Network Places”. Click on “Entire Network” and select the server where your company file has been stored. Restart QuickBooks to see if the problem has been resolved
Use a third party software instead
The above steps don’t always work and at the same time, they can also be confusing. When you are dealing with business data, every second is crucial and that is why you should use a third party tool which can quickly resolve all the errors.

We recommend using Stellar Phoenix Recovery for QuickBooks® Software. It can repair damaged or corrupted QuickBooks file and recover your data. It supports all QuickBooks versions including 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007, and various country editions as well. The software can efficiently recover even the most corrupted files and you would never have to worry about following the complicated manual steps.
