AccountRight not responding

Messages which refer to "not responding", "stopped working" or "timeout" sometimes mean AccountRight is still working in the background (like recording a big transaction), but Windows thinks AccountRight has stopped working. These messages often go away if AccountRight is left to do its thing.

If the message persists or remains for an extended period, here's a few things you can try:

  • Restart AccountRight. You might find that whatever AccountRight was working on actually finished. Maybe that transaction did record or that email was sent.

  • Temporarily disable your antivius program. These programs can sometimes interfere with AccountRight and produce "not responding" messages. If disabling the antivirus program stops the "not responding" message, add an antivirus exclsuion for AccountRight. See Speed and performance tips for details.

  • Open your company file on a different computer. If the "not responding" message doesn't occur on the other computer, it means there's something on your first computer which is causing the issue. You might need an IT person to help investigate further.
