I am in the process of trying to fix a friend’s laptop. He has Quick Books Pro 2007 installed for his business. His laptop had problems that I don’t think were related to the QB software. Long story short, I got the laptop to boot up and run stable. I removed a lot of unnecessary programs like HP printer suites and stuff he no longer had any use for. I gave it back to him and a few days later he told me about his problem with QBs. Every time he would open it up it would give an error message that said something about the PAYRES.dll was a bad windows image (I don’t quite remember, and I cannot restore the computer to that time anymore, sorry). I took the laptop and first found his QBW files and copied them to another folder to keep them safe. I then reinstalled QB pro without uninstalling it, thinking that it would make the required repairs. When I booted it back up and opened QB, it loaded and brought up the logon password block. I entered the password, and it loaded the file, but then gave a setup error: “Failed to load resources from resource file. Please check your setup”. When I clicked OK the program would quit. I have tried a few different approaches. I have tried reinstalling it again. That didn’t work. I then uninstalled all of QB, then reinstalled afresh. It still came up with the same error. I installed the program on my own laptop to see if it would work properly, and it did. I copied the company files from his laptop and opened them up on mine. I’m thinking that either there is a corrupt system file or something in the registry is preventing a fresh install of the program. Just trying to get some advice and ideas. Thanks.
