I hope someone can help me with this. I am trying to install QuickBooks 2008 into my computer. I am running Windows XP Home.
The installation is going fine until the installer hits "Registering Extension Services" Then, I get a pop up window stating;
Error 1406 - Could not write value '''' to key "\desfile\shell\open\command".
I have checked with Intuit and they tell me that it's a problem with the windows installer. They sent me a Microsoft bulletin but it does not work with XP. I have checked my operating system to make sure that all hotfixes are working and even reinstalled the installer. Still nothing.
I am getting desperate on this as I really need the software working to get a year end done for a client.
I'd really appreciate any help I can get on this as Intuit has been no help at all.
