If you are using QODBC with an existing CDKey Code, check the About tab in your QODBC Setup Screen and make sure that the Serial Number second and third digits are either the same or higher than the QuickBooks year you are using.
For example, for QuickBooks 2009 USA Editions you will need the Serial Number to start with either: R09U...... or W09U........ or S09U........
For QuickBooks 2008/09 Australian/New Zealand/Asia Pacific Editions you will need the Serial Number to start with either: R08O...... or W08O........ or S08O......
If your previous version of QODBC had a CDKey Code for example: -
USA Users: QODBC v8 Read/Write Desktop for QuickBooks 2008, then QODBC will report that you don't have a valid CDKey Code for QuickBooks 2009 and say your evaluation has expired.
Australian Users: QODBC v6 Read/Write Desktop for QuickBooks 2006, then QODBC will report that you don't have a valid CDKey Code for QuickBooks 2008/09 and say your evaluation has expired.
You will need to purchase a new QODBC license CDKey Code from your regional sales office.
Intuit QuickBooks Enterprise Users within USA: Check the "About" tab in the QODBC Setup Screen for the existance of a previous full product license. If you had a previous QODBC full product activation, you will need to deactivate your CDKey Code in order for QODBC to drop back to free operation as a QODBC Enterprise Desktop Edition (Read Only) when using USA versions of QuickBooks Enterprise v6, 7, 8 or 9.
