I hope this helps others. I have windows 10 and Quickbooks 2006 & was getting Error 1904 which prevented program from installing. I followed these instructions and the program installed and works.

Resolve Error 1904: [file path / name / extension] failed to register

There are times that special cases needs a different approach. Unless you have one of the special cases below, run the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic tool.

Run the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic tool

  1. Click Ignore on the error message and let the installation complete. DO NOT open QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Restart your computer
  3. If the installation did not complete, download and run the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic Tool.
  4. Reboot your computer.
  5. If running the tool did not resolve the issue, activate the Built in Administrator and install QuickBooks under the built in administrator account.
