You receive this error while updating QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release because of one of the following:
You have an antivirus application installed on your computer that's blocking the update.
You aren’t logged in as the administrator on the computer.
Step 1: Log in to your computer as an administrator
But I already logged in as a different user.
Right-click on the QuickBooks Desktop icon, then select Run as Administrator. This will change your access to an administrator.
Note: If you don’t have an antivirus installed, skip to step 3.
Step 2: Stop your antivirus application and rename folders
On your keyboard, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open Task Manager.
Go to the Processes tab, then look for [ANTIVIRUS].exe.
Example: Spy Sweeper.exe.
Note: If you get an error, uninstall the antivirus application.
Select End Process.
Rename the QuickBooks Cloud Accounting update folder.
On your keyboard, press Windows key+E to open File Explorer.
Go to C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks(year)\Components.
For 64-bit users, go to C:\Program Files(x86)\Intuit\Quickbooks(year)\Components.
Right-click on the downloadqbXX folder, then select Rename. Note that XX stands for the year version of your QuickBooks.
Example: downloadqb18 for QuickBooks Desktop 2018.
Add .old to the end of the name.
Re-update QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise.
