A “User Account Control must be turned on” message may be received when trying to synchronize with QuickBooks. Older versions of QuickBooks may requires Windows User Account Control (UAC) to be turned on in order for third party applications to synchronize with QuickBooks.
UPDATE: This restriction was removed in Acctivate version 8.1.1 with QuickBooks 2011 US (2012 Int’l) R7 or later.
Please refer to the following information if you are using an older version of Acctivate and/or QuickBooks.
Please note,QuickBooks requires UAC to be enabled. If you are logged into Windows as the ‘Administrator’ User, you can NOT enable UAC. Therefore, with these Windows operating systems, you will not be able to synchronize with QuickBooks as the ‘Administrator’ Windows User.
