Restart Your Computer

Many users reported that restarting their computer fixed the problem. This is mainly because many files that may have been damaged or corrupted will be refreshed when you restart the computer. It can solve minor file errors or issues, allowing you to resume your installation without problems.

To restart your computer, close all programs, then click on the Windows icon and then the Power icon. Click on ‘Restart,’ and your computer will automatically shut down and restart. Once the computer restarts, retry QuickBooks installation to check if the problem has been resolved.

Temporarily Disable Your Antivirus Software Program

Some users found that the problem was in their antivirus, anti-spyware or anti-malware program which obstructed the installation process by erroneously identifying some QuickBooks files as a threat. To make sure that your antivirus program is not causing a problem, you can disable it or stop it temporarily till the installation is complete.

Since every antivirus program is uniquely designed, you may have to check with your antivirus program provider for steps to disable it temporarily. You can also visit their official website and download a manual if it is available on the website to find out how to disable the program temporarily.
Once it is disabled, try installing QuickBooks again. If the installation is successful, then you can resume your antivirus program. If the installation fails, then you can resume your antivirus program and move to the next solution.

Use the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic Tool

QuickBooks has designed the QuickBooks Tool Hub for all its users to troubleshoot known errors and common problems with the software easily. The tool hub is made up of many different tools. One of these is the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic Tool. It aims to allow you to solve errors by automating most of the troubleshooting process easily.

The install diagnostic tool, for example, checks all files and folders on your computer related to the operating system and other third-party programs, which may affect QuickBooks. It rectifies file damages and optimizes firewall and antivirus settings to ensure that QuickBooks can be installed without errors.

  • Close the QuickBooks installer and all other programs on your computer.
  • Download QuickBooks Tool Hub. Make sure the downloaded file is saved somewhere that you can easily access. Your desktop or the download folder are two of the best places to save your downloads.
  • Double click on the downloaded file to run the QuickBooks Tool Hub installer. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation. When the installation finishes, a shortcut icon for QuickBooks Tool Hub will be created on your desktop. If you do not see this icon, then click on the Windows icon and search for QuickBooks Tool Hub using the Windows search option. Click on the QuickBooks Tool Hub app to open it.
  • In the window for QuickBooks Tool Hub, you will find lots of tabs on the left side of the window. Select the option that says, ‘Installation Issues.’

Update Windows

To check if your computer is updated or not and to install new updates, you must follow the steps mentioned by Microsoft for updating your operating system. You can refer to the Windows update: FAQ article to find out how to get the latest updates for your computer.

Once your computer has been updated, try reinstalling QuickBooks if you were unable to install it earlier. On the other hand, if the installation was complete and you got the error when you tried to open QuickBooks, then try opening QuickBooks to check if the error has been resolved.

Toggle and Repair .NET Framework

QuickBooks Error 1935 is often associated with problems related to .NET Framework. This is a Windows component that may malfunction, causing installation problems. We can try to toggle the .NET Framework by turning this feature off and turning it on again. In most cases, this solves the problems, or you may have to repair the .NET framework. But even if repairing does not work, then we may resort to uninstalling and reinstalling the .NET Framework. This step requires you to be an advanced Windows user to fully understand your operating system before you start the uninstallation of the .NET Framework.

Step 1: Toggle the .NET Framework off and on

(steps for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 users with .NET Framework 4.5 or later)

  • Close all programs on your computer

  • Choose the option that says ‘Uninstall a program.’

  • If the box next to it is checked, then uncheck the box and restart your computer. Follow the same steps to go back to the .NET Framework and check the box once again to turn on the .NET Framework feature. Install QuickBooks to check if the problem has been resolved.

If you have a different Windows operating system or a different version of the .NET Framework, then contact us for step by step guidance on toggling the .NET Framework on and off.
