[QODBC-Desktop] Troubleshooting: QBW32.EXE Keeps Running Even After QODBC Closes Connection
Posted by Rajendra Dewani (QODBC Support) on 14 April 2014 04:11 PM

Problem Description:

I have closed the QODBC connection to QuickBooks.

But It still shows running in task manager QBW32.EXE keeps running even after QODBC closes the connection.


When the Disconnect command is sent to QODBC, QODBC sends the same to QuickBooks SDK. And SDK closes QuickBooks. We do not have control over how SDK/QuickBooks Closes.

Please try the below Options and see if that helps:

1) Ensure you unselect the "Keep QuickBooks running for quick start-up" option under QuickBooks -- Edit Preferences -- General.
Close all other QuickBooks instances of all other users and then try. (Please verify no instances are running of QBW32 under task manager --processes -- view all user processes)


2) For QODBC and upwards, under the Advanced tab, enable "Force Close QuickBooks." Also, make sure you unselect the option of "Keep QuickBooks running for quick start-up" under QuickBooks -- Edit Preferences -- General
(QuickBooks shall be closed on each Disconnect command )

If the above does not work for you, you may have to write code to Close QuickBooks after completing all the work.
