Steps to Fix Quickbooks administrator permissions needed after update

Copper Contributor

How do I fix the issue of needing QuickBooks administrator permissions after updating QB? I've recently updated QuickBooks, and now it keeps asking for administrator permissions, preventing me from accessing certain features. What steps can I take to resolve this?

If you're encountering administrator permission issues after updating QB, try these steps:

  1. Run QuickBooks as Administrator: Right-click the QB icon and select "Run as Administrator."
  2. Update Windows Permissions: Ensure your user account has the necessary administrative privileges.
  3. Adjust QB User Permissions: Go to "Company" > "Users" > "Set Up Users and Roles" to ensure proper permissions are assigned.

If these steps don't resolve the issue, contact the QB support team for further assistance.
