Installation Errors with QuickBooks Desktop (Error 70, etc.)

There are a couple of common reasons that the Commerce Sync for Desktop installation window hits an error.

Here are our preliminary steps to troubleshoot these:
  • We recommend that you reboot (turn off and then back on) the computer that you are installing on, prior to installing.
  • You'll need to be logged into the computer that has QuickBooks and can access the company file, for the installation.
  • The preferred browsers we'd like you to install with are Chrome or Firefox.
  • The QuickBooks company file you wish to sync transfers to needs to be open during installation.
  • You need to be signed in as the Admin and in Single-user mode in QuickBooks for the install to work properly.
  • Occasionally an anti-virus and/or malware systems block the installation of our app. Disabling these only for the duration of the installation can help.
  • We often see that if you right-click to "Run as Administrator" both QuickBooks and the Commerce Sync app, you'll see fewer issues during installation.
