QuickBooks is a very useful accountancy software that has been used to handle all your financial and bookkeeping needs with ease. Its ease of use as well as premium user experience makes it stand out as one of the best for companies of all sizes. However, no software is perfect, and they are all prone to human errors, causing bugs and glitches in the application. One such error is the QuickBooks Abort Error.
The QuickBooks Abort Error causes your QuickBooks to exit at random, and prevents you from making changes to any company files, or even open them in some cases. This could also damage your core user files present in the local directory.
If you would like an instant resolution strategy to fix this, you can contact the QuickBooks Support Number. They will fix your issue with ease, by diagnosing the root cause and eliminating it completely. If you would like to try and fix it by yourself, read on.
What is the QuickBooks Abort Error?
Your QuickBooks automatically aborts, and prevents you from accessing your company files, or making changes to them. This could happen in the middle of the saving process and could cause a major risk to your data. Essentially, it could occur when the transaction is too heavy for the software and requires a restart. This could damage your QBWUSER.ini file and could result in your QuickBooks frequently crashing.
What causes the QuickBooks Abort Error?
There could be quite a few reasons for this error to occur, such as:
- Due to corrupted or damaged QBWUSER.ini file.
- The Firewall present on your system is not correctly configured for working with QuickBooks.
- Your antivirus program is having a conflict with your QuickBooks.
- There are different versions of QuickBooks on your system that are creating a clash.
- In multi-user environments, there is more than one user trying to host a particular company file.
- You accidentally interrupted the save process by shutting down or sleeping the PC.
- The flow of data between the storage locations has been interrupted somehow.

What are the ways to resolve this error?
Here are the best ways to solve this error on your own.
Solution 1: Run the QuickBooks Diagnostic Tool
This is by far the easiest method to resolve any errors you might face in your QuickBooks. Use the QuickBooks Diagnostic Tool or the QB File Doctor for the later versions of the software. You can use this tool to solve many company file errors, as well as multi-user errors that could occur while you are working with the software. Simply download the installation, open it, and wait till the program installs on your system. Then you can just run it and choose the problem you are facing from the drop-down list. While it could take several minutes, the QB File Doctor should easily diagnose and repair your broken company files, while also resolving any errors you might be facing. This includes the QuickBooks Abort Error.
Solution 2: Disable/Make exceptions in your Antivirus program and your Windows Firewall
While your Windows Firewall has been designed to specifically stop threats such as viruses and trojans from infiltrating and harming your PC, they could also make mistakes sometimes. They could find conflict with some applications and mark them as unsafe, thereby causing errors with how the program runs. This could also be a contributing factor to the QuickBooks Abort Error. The same thing happens to your Antivirus. This is why you need to disable them when you start working with QuickBooks. However, be warned that this is a risky method and could open up your system to dangerous viruses and malware coming from external sources.
Solution 3: Rename the QBWUSER.ini file on your PC
If your network storage is inaccessible through QuickBooks, this should fix the problem.
- Navigate to the QBWUSER.ini file. The default storage location is C:\Users\(your name)\AppData\Local\Intuit\QuickBooks.
- You may not find it here at times, usually when you hide the file. In such cases, make sure that you go to Folder Options and check the Display Hidden Files and Folders option.
- Once you find the file, right click it. From the drop-down menu, select Rename.
- Change the file name to ‘QBWUSER.ini.old’.
- Also, change the name of the entitlement data file (the one with the ‘.ecml’ extension).
- Set it to ‘entitlement data store.ecml’
This should fix the QuickBooks Abort Error with no hitches.
