"How to fix Error 404. File or directory not found in registering the QB Pro?"

I have a qb pro 2007 reinstalled. When I am trying to register it online it is saying File or directory not found. Please help. Thank you!

Answer

QB 2007 was never meant to run on W7 or higher:

Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Microsoft Windows XP Professional


That is too old of a program. You have already left this data file at risk, as the update process is going to be 12 years. You will want to get QB 2019 and ask Intuit to update that file for you, or you need help taking it through 3-year interim updates. Rebuild it in between.

Example: 2007-2010-2013-2016-2019

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.
