Solutions to fix

The following methods are effective in resolving this error-

Solution 1- Configure the Windows User Account Control settings

The User Account Control settings are a security protocol to prevent unauthorized changes in your device. It stops any new program from installing and prompts the user to confirm. These settings can also restrict QuickBooks from installing or updating until authorized by the admin user. You can refer to the steps underneath for toggling the User Account Control settings-

  1. Use the File explorer or the search panel to open the control panel.
  2. Select System and Security in the given options.
  3. Go to Security and maintenance and select Change User Account Control settings.
  4. You can use the slider in the next window to turn the UAC on or off-
  5. Select Never Notify to turn off the UAC settings.
  6. Select Always Notify to turn the UAC settings back on again.
  7. Try installing or updating QuickBooks once the User Account Control settings are off.

If the process fails due to an error, try the next method.

Solution 2- Register the Microsoft Installer again

Windows Installer comes into action whenever you try to install any software or its updates on your PC. The Windows Installer starts fetching the installation package and processes it to begin the installation. If the installer faces any issues while running, the software will develop this error instantly. Use the steps mentioned below to fix-
