Test Connectivity And Settings

QuickBooks is most compatible with the Internet Explorer. It is required for QuickBooks to access internet and it should be set as the default browser. You also need to check if you can access secure websites or not.

  • Download and run the TLS 1.2 Utility.
  • Set Internet Explorer as your default browser and if you are using any other browser, set that browser as default but in that case, you need to make sure that QuickBooks is compatible with that browser.
  • Make sure that you can access secure websites outside QuickBooks, such as the login page of your bank’s site.

Note: If the secure sites can’t be accessed outside QuickBooks, you need to consult your IT expert.

Review the Internet Explorer settings

Improper IE settings can also lead to the update issues in QuickBooks Desktop. You can review your Internet Explorer settings through the following steps:

  • Close QuickBooks and then run QuickBooks.
  • Now, go to Tools and then select Internet Options. Note: If the Tools menu is not available, you can press the ALT key to make it visible.
  • Go to the Security tab and click on the Globe icon and make sure that the security level is at Medium-high.
  • Now, go to the Connections tab and click on Never Dial a Connection if you are not using dial-up node (DUN) on the system. If you use the dial-up node, you can click on correctISP.
  • Click on OK.
  • Go to LAN Settings and ensure that the automatically detect settings is selected. Also, make sure that the Use a Proxy Server checkbox is unmarked. If Use a Proxy Server checkbox is marked, you need to provide complete address and port. If the port is other than port 80, do not remove the checkmark from Use a Proxy Server If the port is port 80, you can clear the checkbox for testing purposes.
  • Click on OK.
  • Go to the Advanced tab and click on Restore Advanced Settings.
  • Now, from Settings, locate Use TLS 1.2, and make sure that it is marked. (These options may not be in your Internet Explorer version.)
  • Click on OK.
  • Close Internet Explorer and restart your system to save changes.

You should now be able to update your QuickBooks Desktop again.
