Troubleshooting - QB Begin Session Failed. Error = 80040438

Problem Description:

I am testing the connection of QODBC & I am getting the QODBC test connection failed error:

Can you advise what is error and the solution for it?


The above error says there are multiple instances of QuickBooks running. Please close all instances of QuickBooks (Please verify no instances are running of QBW32 under task manager --processes -- view all user processes).

Please run only one instance of QuickBooks as a context user, log in to the company file as Admin & try to connect using QODBC Test Tool.

Please refer to Connecting QODBC Driver to QuickBooks for the First Time (Video)
