Hi rafcomm,

I'd just like to add to Memere's answer.

The link to the article has been archived, so allow me to provide you its content. There are three solutions that we recommend for this issue.

For the first solution, you need to confirm you're using the U.S. version:

  1. Search your hard drive for the winver.exe file.
  2. - The winver.exe file is usually located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder. You can consult your IT guy if you need more help with this process.
  3. Right-click the winver.exe file and select Properties.
  4. Under the Details tab, find Language and verify if it is set to English (United States) version

Once you've confirmed it, you'll need to set the Windows Regional and Language settings to English:

  1. From your keyboard, press the start (windows) + R keys to open the Run window.
  2. Type in Control Panel and click OK.
  3. Under Clock, Language, and Region, select Change keyboards and other input methods.
  4. Select the Formats tab.
  5. Click the Format drop-down arrow and select English (United States).
  6. Click OK.
  7. Open QuickBooks Desktop.

Lastly, the Database Server Manager is responsible for hosting QuickBooks company files over the network. It controls access to company files using QBDataServiceUserXX. If it's damage, that's when errors like this can occur.

To fix it, you just need to follow these steps:

  1. From your keyboard, press the start (windows) + R keys to open the Run window.
  2. Type in services.msc and click OK.
  3. Right click the service that matches your QuickBooks version and select Properties.
    - QuickBooks 2018: QuickBooksDB28
    - QuickBooks 2017: QuickBooksDB27
    - QuickBooks 2016: QuickBooksDB26
  4. Under the Log On tab and select Local System account.
  5. Click Apply and OK to close the Services window.
  6. Open QuickBooks Desktop.

I know the process is a bit long, but I know you can do this. However, if you need someone to guide you along the way, you can reach out to our Desktop Support Team.

Here's how you can reach them:

  1. Go to this link
  2. Select QuickBooks Desktop.
  3.  Select Pro or Premier.
  4. Click Solving Issues & Error Messages.
  5. In step 2, Here's how to connect with a QuickBooks expert, click Get Phone Number.

Please don't hesitate to keep in touch if there's anything else I can do for you.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
