Detailed Instructions
  1. Close QuickBooks.
  2. Open Windows Explorer.
  3. Browse to the Paysub.ini file. (You might have to Show Hidden Files/Folders)
    • In Windows 8, WIndows 7 and Vista- C:\Program Data\Intuit\QuickBooks YEAR \Components\DownloadQBXX
  4. Rename the Paysub.ini to Paysubold.ini.
