Ok, so, a known issue. I've tried the various fixes floating around but to no avail. Does anyone know how to get the Reckon Accounts v5 / Amyuni PDF converter working? Since updating to Reckon Accounts 2018 I get the dreaded "Printer Not Activated - Error Code -60". I've uninstalled, deleted wpr.ini, deleted qbprint.qbp, reinstalled etc...

Hi Andy,

I know this article refers to the 2016 edition however I'd recommend checking out the steps listed and see if it could apply in your case -

Hi Andy

Two more steps I normally try:

open task manager (Ctrl Alt Delete) > Details Tab > click splwow64.exe > End Task
edit qbw.ini in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Intuit and add these lines at the bottom


Restart Reckon and test TWICE (sometimes, the first time doesn't work after reinstalling Amyuni PDF.

Sometimes this works for me, sometimes doesn't.

If it doesn't, set up a gmail account, change the settings so it looks like it was send from your regular email and the reply to address is your regular email.

Fingers crossed.
