There are numerous articles on the web that suggest installing .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 or .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 including the following KB article from Intuit http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/pages/knowledgebasearticle/1009275 . In this instance none of these solutions will work.



This issue is caused by the default high security settings of Internet Explorer on Windows 2008. To get QuickBooks working do the following on your Windows 2008 terminal.

  1. Log into the server as Administrator
  2. Turn of IE Enhanced Security Configuration for Administrators and Users. This is done via Server Manager.
  3. Open Internet Explorer Options and set the security level for the Internet Zone to Medium-High or Lower.
  4. Open QuickBooks.
If you are using QuickBooks via a managed service then you will need to ask your provider to change these settings for you.
