Installation troubleshooting

If your computer is more than a few years old, start by checking the system requirements to see if it can run AccountRight.

To find the info for your issue, work out how AccountRight is being installed:

  • Manually installing—this is where you've double-clicked a downloaded installation file to begin the installation.

  • Automatic update—this is where you haven't done anything but AccountRight has popped up a message about a failed update.

If you're seeing this message, restart AccountRight to ensure all pending updates are installed.
