Steps to Resolve

Based on the detailed error above, the below issues may be occurring.

  • Could not start QuickBooks.
    • This means that your QuickBooks company file is either not open, or the correct path is not set in MyWorks Sync > Connection, if you wish to sync with your QuickBooks company file closed.
  • This application is not allowed to log into this QuickBooks company data file automatically. The QuickBooks administrator can grant permission for an automatic login through the Integrated Application preferences.
    • This means that an administrator needs to visit QuickBooks > Edit > Preferences > Integrated Applications, click on Properties next to our sync, and ensure it’s set to allow login automatically.
  • Recent changes to your configuration require you (the QuickBooks Administrator) to go into the Integrated Applications preferences and re-authorize your integrated application to log in automatically.
    • Follow the steps above to visit QuickBooks > Edit > Preferences > Integrated Applications, click on Properties next to our sync, and ensure it’s set to allow login automatically. This can happen after a QuickBooks version upgrade.
