Occasional Error Code: -1000, Error: 80040403
« on: April 02, 2013, 08:27:43 AM »
I'm using QB 2010 and have an automated process to create checks from FM to QB.   It works great, but occasionally, we are thrown an exception when initializing a session:

Code: -1000
Error: 80040403

Any suggestions on how to prevent, handle or trap for this type of error would be appreciated.

If this is going to a network share, make sure the correct permissions have been applied. If all else fails try it from the C: drive and you will no doubt see the problem disappear. I've noticed that using a UNC path sometimes yields these results (such as \\this-server-01\QB\), especially in multi user mode. Mapping a drive letter and using this can eliminate the issue (such as Q:\QB).

80040403 is unable to begin a session, either caused by someone having the file open or the operating system denying access (usually the OS/share permissions).

In addition (I've just done some more testing so gleaned some more info), are you using this on a server box such as a Windows Terminal Server and accessing from multiple machines? if so, make sure you've added the file for hosting using the QuickBooks Database manager. That totally eradicated this message from my testing environment when using Terminal Server.

Thanks

Further to this, ensure you create a user per machine for Fm Books and stick to it. Open the file as Admin or whoever and close it again. Just to make sure it was the last opened file.

The  most common time I see this is when 2 people use the same user account. Just make a full access account for FM Books only, set and forget.
