You attempt to install the multi-user client on a workstation that does not have QuickBooks installed, and the installer does not allow you to continue:
In order for the synch engine to run and communicate with QuickBooks, a client version of QuickBooks must be installed.
This is normal behavior for:
If you are running the multi-user client, and you receive this message, this is an acknowledged bug that will be fixed in the next release (7.3)
For the single-user and multi-user server installations, this is by design - with no resolution intended.
The following resolution is ONLY for the multi-user client installation.
There are two things the installer looks for:
If you use regedit.exe on the server, you would navigate to:
29.0 represents the version of QuickBooks:
"belacct" refers to the version of QuickBooks
Within that key will be a string called "Path" - with the value showing where the QBW32.EXE should reside
What you need to do is recreate ONLY the key/string/value underneath HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node
which is:Intuit/QuickBooks/28.0/belacct > Path with value C:\[folder]\qw32.exe
Path = c:\QB\QBW32.EXE
This path can be anything you choose.
The next step is to retrieve a copy of the QBW32.EXE from the server (or other machine with a the same year and version of QB you placed in the registry) and place it in the directory you noted in the registry path definition (and subsequently created on the C:\Drive).
Once you have created the registry key, string, and path value, and placed a copy of the QBW32.EXE in that path, then you can go ahead and install the multi-user client.
Once QQube is successfully installed, you can remove the registry key, and the QBW32.EXE (and path) from your hard drive.
