I installed QB 2008 on my XP SP3 machine and tried to use it to access the qbw file I had copied to my drive. I got an error message saying that I probably lack proper permissions to do read/writes on this file. Also, when I use Windows Explorer to highlight the copied qbw file on my drive, Explorer CRASHES!
I then tried to do a straight copy-paste of the qbw files from the Vista drive to my machine, using Windows Explorer. It wouldn't let me access the Intuit folder on the Vista machine. It says I don't have proper permissions.
How can I overcome this calamity? I have tried everything I can think of. I need to extract these qbw files.
