Intuit has not been customer friendly when it comes to Vista.
There is no update that makes QuickBooks versions prior to 2007
compatible with Vista. You have to purchase a 2007 version. We have
multiuser QuickBooks and replacing our 2006 version was very costly. The
only good news is that you can probably argue with Intuit and get a
small "upgrade" discount on 2007 and a substantial subsequent discount
on QuickBooks 2008 which will be available in the Fall 2007.
I can confirm that QuickBooks 2007 runs fine on Windows Server 2007. It
is supposed to be OK on Vista.

Brenda,
did you get an answer?
I know you can install on XP, then upgrade to Vista and it works.
however i've just put a fresh install of Windows 7 on my notebook, and
have the same issue.

QuickBooks 2007 or later will run on Vista. I will assume that Windows 7 has
the same restrictions on QuickBooks access to system files.

If you are so advanced to be using Window 7, give QuickBooks 2010 a try...

I actually got it to run. Ran process explorer from sysinternals. found
it was trying to access the intuit registration settings under
wow6432node. So exported the registry registration key, change the key
by adding wow6432node to thekey ie, ... software\wow6432node\intuit

imported the requistry settings.

Just need to re-register it.

look for reboot.bat in the quickbooks program files.
the reg keys are the same except under the
hklm\software\wow6432node\intuit rather than hklm\software\intuit.
However I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 so it may be different under other
versions. Info supplied without warranty, so back stuff up before you
muck around!!!

I have copied everything bar the system32 files, and that is where i am
stuck.
some of them already exist in the windows\system32 folder and will not
let me replace them.

FIXED IT! Very Happy

I reinstalled 2002 running setup as administrator and with
compatability for xpsp2 turned on and it worked!

Just had to set the desktop icon to run as administrator (no need for
xp compatability mode) and bobs your auntie.

I have a feeling that the registry import had alot to do with my
sucess.

Thaks so much for your assistance Smile
Made my month!

Dear All,

I got Quickbooks 2002 running ok under Windows 7 (Seven) thanks to the
tips in the posts above. I'm pretty sure the same tricks work also under
Vista.

If I may summarize
1) Before running the installer (maybe \qbooks\setup.exe, as on my CD)
make sure you click Properties and under the Compatibility tab activate
Run in XP SP2 Compatibility Mode, and Run as Admin
2) Run the installer (to be sure, right click and run as admin)
3) Say yes, go ahead to all warnings
After having done this, go to the program folder
probably C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks Pro
and repeat step 2 for qbw32.exe (the file that launches QB2002)
4) After having done this, the program splash screen came up but the
program still shut down instantly. But Geeboh gave the solution: run
(again, as always, right click the file, Run as Admin) the
post-installation file "reboot.bat" which you'll also find in the
program folder. It forces registration of a number of files which under
XP would have been done automatically but is held up by Vista / Seven
because of lacking security privileges.
That did it, happy $$$ saving!
