What are the reasons causing abort errors in QuickBooks Desktop?

Apart from the outdated QuickBooks Desktop application, there are several other reasons that can trigger abort errors in QuickBooks Desktop, such as:

       
  • The folder that contains the QuickBooks company file needs additional permission.

  • Now, it is time to jump to the troubleshooting solutions for the reasons we just discussed above with you.

    What should you do to resolve QuickBooks abort error?

    Solution 1) Manually update the QuickBooks Desktop application using the administrator account

    At times, updating QuickBooks to the latest release resolves the common QuickBooks errors, including the abort error.

         
    • On the keyboard, press the Windows icon key to select the Start menu.
    •    
    • Enter “QuickBooks” into the search column and right-click the QuickBooks Desktop version year you want to update.
    •    
    • Select the Run as administrator option from the drop-down list of options.
    •    
    • Type in the administrator password of QuickBooks as prompted.
    •    
    • On the keyboard, press Windows + E keys at the same time to open File Explorer.
    •    
    • Open the folder that contains the QuickBooks company file with the QBW extension and right-click it.

    • Note: Usually, the Company Files folder stored the QuickBooks company file, which you can access by navigating to the following path: C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Intuit\QuickBooks\Company Files.

           
      • On the keyboard, press & hold the Alt key and then select the Open option.
      •    
      • On the No Company Open window, choose the Help menu at the top menu bar.
      •    
      • Select the Update QuickBooks Desktop option from the drop-down list of options.
      •    
      • Click on the Mark All button on the Options tab.
      •    
      • Go to the Update Now tab, choose the Reset Update checkbox, and then click on the Get Updates button.
      •    
      • Restart the QuickBooks Desktop application and choose the Yes option on the update installer prompt.

      • Solution 2) Grant permissions to the folder that contains the QuickBooks company file

        You can allow QuickBooks Desktop to access or share the company file by granting required permissions to the folder containing company files.

             
        • On the keyboard, press Windows + R keys altogether to open the Run command window.
        •    
        • In the Run dialog box, type “C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Intuit\
        •    
        • QuickBooks” and press the Enter key.
        •    
        • In the folder, search for the folder named Company Files and right-click it.
        •    
        • Select the Properties option.
        •    
        • Choose the Security tab and then click on the Edit button.
        •    
        • From the list of services, select QBDataServiceUserXX and checkmark the Full Control checkbox under the permissions section.
        •    
        • Select the Allow option.
        •    
        • Click on the Apply button and then the OK button.
        •  

          Conclusion:

          If QuickBooks abort error persists even after following the troubleshooting solutions mentioned above in the post, then there might be some data corruption in the QuickBooks company file. Our recommendation for you is to run the Verify and Rebuild utility to repair the damaged company file and see whether this resolves the error or not. You can also get the abort error fixed immediately by contacting our QuickBooks support team at (844-888-4666).
