We have just learned that Intuit has released a new update for QuickBooks 2013 – R6. We recommend all users install this update, especially if you are one of the users that suffered from the Unexpected QuickBooks crash issue that we mentioned a few days ago.
According to Intuit this updates makes that following changes -
- Resolved QBW32.EXE Fatal Application Exit error (Unrecoverable Error 02700 80318)
- Improved performance.
- Added the ability to change the Company File Color Scheme
- Added Windows 8 support for the QuickBooks Attach Documents scan manager.
- Added Monthly payroll item limits.
Your QuickBooks should alert you when this update is available but if you want to check and install it manually you can follow the instructions below.
I just ran the update and it took a few minutes on my machine to finish and I had to restart my computer. When I opened my company file the color scheme was changed and it updated my datafile. If you share your datafile you will all need to update to use the company file. So far so good. No crashes.
To run a manual update, click on Help, then Update QuickBooks. On the fist page of the Update QuickBooks window click on the big blue Update Now button. That will bring up the Update Now tab and you can then click on the blue Get Updates button.
Allow a few minutes for all of the updates to download, then when it is finished, close QuickBooks and re-open. QuickBooks will install your new updates and you should be good to go.
