Troubleshooting - QB Begin Session Failed. Error = 80040438

Problem Description:

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



Can you advise what is error and solution for it?
 

Solution:

The above error says there are multiple instances of QuickBooks is running. Please close all instance 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 context user, log in to company file as Admin & try to connect using VB Demo.
