Error: -6098,0 when turning on multi-user hosting and trying to combine several companies' reports

When you click Yes to the message, "Start hosting multi-user access when trying to combine reports," the following error message appears:

Warning: To start or stop hosting multi-user access to company files, you must be logged into Windows as a user who has administrator privileges. Please log in using an administrator account and try again. For more information, refer to the help for Microsoft Windows. If the problem persists, contact Intuit Technical Support and provide them with the following error codes (-6098, 0).
Why this is happening

This error occurs if a Windows Standard user logs into a PC where multi-user hosting has not been set up by the QuickBooks Admin. The Standard user will not be able to run combined reports until the Admin has turned on multi-user hosting access.

How to fix it

To turn on multi-user hosting access:

  1. Sign into QuickBooks as Admin.
  2. Choose File> Utilities > Host Multi-User Access.
  3. When you see the message Start hosting multi-user access, click Yes.
