Why this is happening

  • The version of QuickBooks Desktop was installed previously and was later removed.
  • The previous installation was damaged. If the removal did not complete successfully, some information may have been left behind, telling the computer that QuickBooks Desktop is still installed. The same information can also prevent QuickBooks Desktop from being uninstalled successfully.
