After reinstalling Qb POS, I get error: Intuit.RSG.QBPOSInterop.UpdateApplicationActionPage.

 

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

 

A recent Windows update is causing many people to have to reinstall the QuickBooks Point of Sale software.

On client systems, it is not uncommon to reinstall, then get faced with an error:

Error: Intuit.RSG.QBPOSInterop.UpdateApplicationActionPage

Why is this happening?

The reinstall has removed the product updates the program has received, and it no longer matches the updates on the main system.

 

How do I fix this?

There are 2 ways to fix the issue:

  1. Click Close on the error. When you are at the POS screen ( and nothing is active) choose Help, Software Updates, Check for updates. This should locate, download and install the latest POS update. After that,  the program should open successfully.
  2. Option 2- Manual update- You can download the manual update from Intuit’s site, save the update to the computer, then install it. Updates can be located here:

QuickBooks Point of Sale and EMV compliance.

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

For some time now we have been trying to find out where QB POS was going with EMV compliance.

 

It looks like we finally have an answer. While we were told in the past that QB POS v 11 (2013) would eventually be made compliant, after the version 12 was done, it appears that has now changed.

The information we have received now is that ONLY the QuickBooks Point of Sale V12 will be made compliant.

If you are using a version of QuickBooks point of Sale that is older than version 12, you will need to upgrade.

 

Failed to open company file, When opening QuickBooks Point of Sale.

 

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

 

This is an error we are seeing more of. After trying numerous fixes, I have found one reliable fix:

  1. With QB POS closed, open the control panel in windows, open Admin Tools, Services, and stop the Intuit Entitlement Client, and the QBPOS database manager.
  2. Open the folder at c:\users\public\public documents\intuit\QuickBooks Point of Sale x(version)\Data
  3. Select New Folder and name it ( trial or Bogus)
  4. Copy the QBPOS.db from your current company file folder into the new folder
  5. Restart the Intuit Entitlement Client and the QB POS database managers
  6. Open POS and tell it to open the Trial or Bogus company
  7. Once the company opens, go to File, Company Operations, Rename Company and change it to your business name and then add a 1 on the name.

I have seen this occurring on networks where one computer was replaced with a Windows 10 system.

Even if the Windows 10 is not configured properly, it would try to connect to the company data, and appears to break the folder.

If you are putting a Windows 10 computer on the network I would recommend looking at the blog on running Qb POS 10 on a Windows 10 system. https://qbdeal.com/quickbooks-point-of-sale-blog/659-quickbooks-point-of-sale-10-in-windows-10.html

 

Are you planning to buy a new Windows 7 system? Better act now!

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

Windows 7 has been a stable operating system, and loved by many. But Microsoft has rules as to how long an operating system can be sold.

Originally, they ordered the stop of sales of Windows 7 for October 31, 2014. But there was a huge backlash associated with Windows 8, so they extended the ability to sell the Windows 7 operating system.

The new deadline will be October 31, 2016. After that, even the computer manufacturers will no longer be able to sell it.

So if you are happy with Windows 7, and are planning on getting a new system, you will want to start planning now.

It’s a phrase we hear every day, and many really don’t understand.

The Cloud.

There have been some cute commercials made around it, but in reality it underscores the fact that it is something you cannot see, touch, taste, smell or feel, but can have a very big impact on our lives.

When we talk about “The Cloud”, what we are really referring to is a computer server that is connected to the internet. That server will hold or dispense data depending on the instructions we give it. And to keep our data private, we save our data using encryption, which is a fancy way of saying we have our own little language that only we understand. If someone else tried to read it, they get gibberish.

Ok, so far so good. So why this big push to get everything on the cloud?

Well, having something accessible through the internet does have some distinct advantages. You can access information from anywhere, run reports, place orders, run payroll…..all kinds of things, and not be chained to your desk.

Are there disadvantages? Sure. If the internet goes down, or is not available where you are, your kinda stuck, right?

Five years ago, that was the case. Today, not so much.

QuickBooks Point of Sale 12 and missing buttons in the Assembly screens.

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

There have been recent reports of the Qty+, Qty- and other buttons missing from the Edit Assembly screens when trying to edit or create an Assembly Item in QB POS v12.

 

Intuit has been made aware of the issue. Here’s what’s happening.

The QB POS program was designed to operate on a screen resolution of 1024x768. Except that some screens do not appear to work well at this resolution.

Intuit has stated that resetting the screen to a resolution of 1920x1080 or higher may help, and also reducing the font size to small. (This can be found under Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Display.)

Then, close POS and reopen it if it is not already closed.

In a nutshell, the buttons are there, they are just displaying off the right side of the screen.

Some experimentation may be needed to find a resolution that works, and you may actually have to reset the resolution again after editing the assemblies.

 

EMV- Whats it REALLY all about?

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

EMV.  This is a major buzz word today, and from the questions we have been receiving, it appears to be a really confusing topic.

So, let’s take it and try to make it real easy to understand.

 

EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa. These are the companies that got the ball rolling.

What EMV does is change who is at fault when credit card fraud happens.  That’s it. Really.

The new cards will have a chip in them. When they are inserted into a chip reading device, the chip adds a unique transaction number to the sale.

emvchiponcard(Image supplied by VISA).

If you have the chip reading equipment, and there is a fraudulent sale, then you are not responsible.

If you don’t have the equipment and there is a fraudulent sale, you ARE responsible.

If you have the equipment, but the card does not have the chip, the bank that issued the card is responsible.

If you take a card number over the phone, you have always been responsible for that anyway, so, no change.

That’s it in a nutshell!

When put into plain language, it really is not a huge change!

So what about a situation where the credit card processor has not made the chip reader active yet, or has not yet sent you a chip reader?

Well, contact them.

We know that some of the chip devices are not yet ready, so Intuit has been sending out a notice to their payment clients stating that intuit will accept the liability until March 31, 2016, or you receive the equipment. In some cases, like with QuickBooks Point of Sale v 12, if you have the debit pad, the capability is already in place to read the chips, but the software update to turn it on has not yet finished testing and been sent out. That will come as an update to QB POS. Until it does, the liability is covered by Intuit.

So the thing to remember is:

It is really not a big change. And, until everything is in place, Intuit has your back.

 

 

QuickBooks 2016 is coming out. What can we expect?

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

True to form, Intuit will be releasing the new version of QuickBooks soon.

There have been some changes.

New Bill Tracker You’ll now be able to get real-time data and status of the money that’s going out of your business. You’ll be able to search and sort your bills by vendor, type, or date range, and then take actions such as printing, paying or closing PO’s.

 

New Bulk Clear Send Forms You can now select and remove multiple documents from the send queue at once rather than having to go through each line item.

 

Improved e-invoicing You can now send your invoices with a “Pay Now” link and accept any major credit card on the spot. Then once the payment goes through, your QuickBooks data is updated with the payment details downloaded directly into your QuickBooks software.

 

New Fiscal Year-to-Last Month Report Filter Any report now allows you to filter for a specific date range, making custom reports now a breeze.

 

New Continuous Feed Label Printer SupportYou’ll now be able to use a Zebra-compatible printer to print single labels on your continuous feed label printer.

 

Improved Verify and Rebuild Data Process No longer do you need to find the QBWin.log files to troubleshoot the problem when you encounter a data verification issue.  Now, the details of the detected issues for both the Verify and Rebuild process are provided to help you solve the problem faster.

 

New Auto Copy Ship-To Address (only in 2016 Premier Accountant and QuickBooks Enterprise) – QuickBooks now populates the “ship to” address with the customer’s information that’s on file. No longer do you need to manually input the addresses from the Create Sales Order or Create Estimate into the Purchase Order ship to field.

 

NEW! Filter for Custom Fields in Item Reports Item-based reports will recognize the filter settings for custom-defined fields.

 

IMPROVED! Upgrade Process Made Easier Upgrading from prior versions of QuickBooks is now easier and includes an integrated backup operation.

 

ONLY WITH ACCOUNTANT AND ENTERPRISE VERSIONS

 

NEW! Batch Delete/Void Transactions

 

Included With: QuickBooks Accountant and all editions of QuickBooks Enterprise (Admin or External Accountant login required).

 

This powerful and timesaving feature is available only with QuickBooks Accountant and QuickBooks Enterprise (all editions). There are many reasons why a bulk delete, or void functionality, could be very useful. For example, your client may have downloaded a large number of transactions more than once, or a new employee incorrectly entered several transactions.

Below is a summary of the functionality available with the Batch Delete/Void Transactions:

  • Transaction types that can be voided or deleted in batch include: Invoices, Checks and Bills.
  • The following general ledger posting transactions cannot be voided or deleted with this tool:
    • Sales Tax Payments (in the displayed screen shot, the row is greyed out)
    • Paychecks
    • Payroll Liability Payments
    • Credit Card Charges / Credits
    • Inventory Adjustments
    • General Journal Entries
    • Bank Transfers
    • Transactions in a closed period
    • Transactions that are linked to other transactions will not void or delete the linked transaction. For example, a bill payment check voided will return the bill(s) previously marked as paid to an Open status.
    • Transactions types selected for Delete/Void can be smart filtered by:
    • Payee including Customers, Jobs, Vendors, Employee and other names
  • One choice from: Entered date, Last modified date, Transaction date
  • All dates, Last 90 Days and a variety of other dates including Custom
  • Users can select all displayed transactions with a single click, or can individually select or deselect transactions.
  • Sort the viewed data by clicking on any of the column headers.
  • Transactions dated on, or before, a closing date cannot be voided or deleted.
  • Integrated backup helps protect data. However, the user can choose a non-standard option to void or delete without creating a backup.
  • QuickBooks provides a Review Batch or Transactions view, depending on the type of action selected. The user can type a Memo that will be added to each transaction. The user can also choose to Close, and not complete, the requested process.
  • Upon successful completion of the requested operation, QuickBooks provides a message listing the number of transactions Voided or Deleted with a link to view or print the Voided/Deleted Transactions Summary report.
