Quickbooks requires you to be a system administator on your XP machine in order to run it. To see if you are, click 'Start' then 'Control Panel' then choose 'User Accounts'. If you are an administrator it will tell you. If you are not, make yourself one by clicking on your account then 'Change my account type'. Hope this helps.
I am new to quickbooks and have installed Quickbooks pro 2005. But when I go to start it, it gives me the following error:
"win xp and 2000 users must have power users or admin group rights in order to run quickbooks. Please contact your system adminstrator"
How the heck do I change this? I'm not on a network, just little ole me here. I understand this has to do with security settings on Win XP, but I don't know much about them or how to change them.
Can someone help me out with this before I go insane?
