Please let me know what I am doing wrong. 

Solutions:

The 80040410 error is occurring when the company file mode specified on QODBC Setup Screen is different from the Company file opened in QuickBooks.

Please enable the below option on QODBC & try again. Please select the "Use the company file that's now open in QuickBooks" option & mode when opening "Same as company file":

Start>> QODBC Driver for use with QuickBooks >> Configure QODBC Data Source >>Go To "System DSN" Tab >> select DSN name >> click "configure" >> General tab >> select mode when opening "Same as company file" option.

After changing the above settings, please open the company file in QuickBooks, which you want to open & try to connect using your application.
