How to fix the 80029c4a error in QuickBooks

In order to resolve this error, customers are advised to attempt each of the methods listed below one at a time.

Reminder: Only try the next fix if the previous one doesn’t work.

  1. Restart your Computer

This might be useful if you rarely reboot your computer instead preferring to put it to “sleep.” By restarting the computer, memory problems are resolved and installed applications get a fresh start.

  1. Update QuickBooks

Throughout the product’s lifespan, Intuit offers free QuickBooks updates that can be loaded automatically or at a time that suits you. These upgrades typically resolve application-related difficulties by addressing bugs and hidden core concerns. If you use the programme on networked systems, you should be cautious when updating it. Since all systems on the network should be running the same release of the programme, updating could result in a forced upgrade for all users in this situation. This can result in unneeded delays and a halt in activity during working hours.

  1. Run “reboot.bat”

Reboot.bat, a tiny batch file, is saved in the installation directory after QuickBooks is installed. No matter what version of QuickBooks you are using, you can always find this file. It aims to reset every system setting that QuickBooks has made over its usage. The command line scripts in “Reboot.bat” clear the Windows registry settings for each component that QuickBooks utilises. Thus, it functions as a sort of cleanup tool that puts things back where they belong if they ever become disorganised.

Make sure there are no active instances of the QuickBooks application before running this file. That held true for networked systems as well. When you run “reboot.bat,” there shouldn’t be any active instances of QuickBooks operating at all. Additionally, in order to run the file, you must sign into Windows as an administrator. If the computer doesn’t restart automatically after this file has been executed, don’t force it to.

  1. Re-launch QuickBooks

Sometimes all that’s required to get things back on track is to restart the application. After experimenting with the aforementioned methods, this one ought to be easy enough.

  1. Reinstall QuickBooks application

If all else fails, uninstalling and then reinstalling QuickBooks would be the best method to update the programme and give it a fresh start. Things should run more smoothly if you are using the app on a solitary machine. Exercise the same caution you did when updating QuickBooks on networked systems. The steps listed below should be followed to repair a QuickBooks installation:

  • Locate a machine not connected to the network.
  • Launch QuickBooks from it, and from the ‘About’ menu, discover the licence and product number. Take note of this data.
  • Go to the list of installed programmes in the Control Panel after opening it.
  • Locate QuickBooks in this list, pick it, then click the remove button.
  • Choose the Repair option in the uninstall dialogue box that appears, then click “Next.”

It’s good if you can fix QuickBooks’ installation. However, if you experience any issues, visit the QuickBooks product update website to find the most recent version of your software and contrast it with the details you earlier jotted down. Verify that this information corresponds to that on all systems connected to the network. After that, find your version of QuickBooks on the Intuit QuickBooks Support Download Site, download it, and then install it.
