Microsoft .Net Framework Error

Are you seeing the following error shortly after Windows login when running QuickBooks?

Microsoft .NET Framework

Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Details begin with: See the end of this message for details on invoking just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.
************** Exception Text **************System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.   at QBWebConnector.RegistryManager.anyAppScheduled()   at QBWebConnector.ScheduleManager.Scheduler_Tick(Object sender, EventArgs e)   at QBWebConnector.EventManager.OnClockTicked(Object sender)   at QBWebConnector.QBWebConnector.Clock_Ticked(Object sender, EventArgs args)   at System.Windows.Forms.Timer.OnTick(EventArgs e)   at System.Windows.Forms.Timer.TimerNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)   at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

Easy thing to fix. Run regedit and remove this folder: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Intuit\QBWebConnector]

The folder will be recreated upon relaunching the program. Of course, backing up the registry and all that stuff applies. If you don’t know what regedit is, you should probably call someone to help you.

QBWebConnector Log Problem

If you are getting this error on login:

QBWebConnector – Information
QBWC1085: There was a problem with the log file.
QuickBooks Web Connector will continue without a log file.

You need to grant permission to your users to be able to write to the folder where the log is stored. Typically this is:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Intuit\QBWebConnector\log

But it could vary from system to system. You probably want to give all users full control over the Intuit folder, but you may find it best to give them control over the entire App Data folder. This is typically where the Users get their rights that are inherited for the rest of the folders and normally it is only set to Read & Execute. I’ve just been granting full control.

Anyone see a reason to do something else?

Windows Mobile Wins

I’ve just been spending way too much time at the office lately. I didn’t leave till 8:30 tonight, went to Sierra’s birthday dinner at BJ’s and then came home to keep working! I guess it’s keeping me out of trouble for the most part. Windows Mobile won. The final nail in the coffin was when Batch sent a message last night and it had the signature line “Sent from my Verizon Wireless Blackberry.” I figured that indicated it was time to be done. There were enough reason to go Windows, we certainly don’t need to be sending out email through Blackberry’s servers so they can tag it up with whatever they want.

Things seem to be working fairly well on that front. I continued to immerse myself in Windows today. When I started having problems with my Windows in Parallels at the office, I decided it was time for a clean install. Unfortunately I couldn’t get my XP iso disc (which I used to install it in the first place) to work, so I grabbed the Vista disk that was sitting in the cabinet and went to town! I actually somewhat like it. Things seem to be going well with it and the two things I use it for I got installed and working: Outlook and Quickbooks.

And on that note, I’m going to bed. Ryan and I are going riding in the morning so I need to get some rest.

Hot Date with a Domain Controller

Well let’s see. I was at the office till almost three this morning because I got some crazy idea to wipe our domain in order to fix a few problems were were having. Most of it worked well. Exchange is now happy and quickbooks is working except we have some annoyances due to the programs lack of support for accounts without administrative rights. I spent today continuing to clean up the mess Batch and I left last night and making sure I was on top of the other actual office work.

I missed the activity at church last night which I hear wasn’t very well attended. I need to get better at going again and if nothing else showing my support. I did make it to institute tonight which was great as always.

Maybe I can get a good night sleep and actually enjoy an evening to myself for the first time in a while tomorrow. I enjoyed watching CSI this evening. Since I’m so far behind I wouldn’t even know the difference between a rerun and a new episode! I did recognize the episode of Without a Trace, though this was probably a good thing since it allowed me to turn off the TV and maybe get to bed a bit earlier than I would have if I was glued to the tube.

So I see the CA DMV has a cool new printer that fits inside an envelope! I got my car registration today, dated as issued 1/31/08 – today! I was thinking that was some great delivery time for snail mail if they could manage to get it out sameday, but then i saw that the envelope was postmarked on the 29th. Does that mean they figured out how to fit a printer into a tiny envelope to issue the registration on the date of receipt or do they have some crazy method to estimate the delivery date and use that as the issue date? Does any of this make any sense? Why not just print the date it was printed on it and put it in the mail?
