  • In Progress
Home Inventory Manager did not install automatically with Reckon Accounts Personal Plus 2015
installation off Disc. Tried using the "Manual Installation" option, which started to install and failed with an error code."Key Not Valid in specified state". The indication at the time was that the installation was Updating Component registration. There is no indication of which key is the problem. Reckon Accounts Personal Plus 2013 and HIM were uninstalled and PC restarted before Installation of Reckon Accounts Personal Plus 2015. The operating system is Vista and the autorun.exe file was Run As Adminstrator. Reckon Accounts Personal Plus 2015 itself is working fine,but I have no HIM.

Hi Greg,

Please try to install Home inventory using below steps.

If you download the installer, go to C:\TEMP\HAB\DISK1\Reckon Home Inventory Manager\installer\

Then run Qhinstall.exe as administrator.

If you have the disc, go to the disc drive:\TEMP\HAB\DISK1\Reckon Home Inventory Manager\installer\

Then run Qhinstall.exe as administrator.

Regards

Hi Russell,

Are you trying to install it via download link? If you have not done it, try requesting a disc then try installing Home Inventory from Disc.

Please let me know if you have the disc, then we can check or try something else.

Deny, I originally downloaded the program on-line. I also arranged to get a disc. I have now tried your suggestion to install the program from the disc. Unfortunately this does not work either and I get the same message.

Hi Russell,

Have you tried what Greg did? Which is to move the contents of the folder C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA ?

Deny, I have now tried uninstalling the program and re installing it, several times and for some reason after the last attempt it now appears to be working. I can't explain what I have done differently. Anyway I will now see how it performs and links to Personal Plus. Thanks for help.

I am having a similar problem. I upgraded from Personal Plus 2013 but can't install Inventory Manager. I wasn't asked if I wanted to install it during the set-up and if I try to install manually nothing happens. I have tried running Qhinstall.exe as administrator, still nothing happens. I have removed the contents of the RSA folder and I am using downloaded files from the link when I renewed my subscription. I am running Windows 7 64bit

Fixed the problem but don't know why; doesn't make sense! Downloaded Reckon Accounts Personal 2015.exe again and extracted it into a new temporary folder. Ran Qhinstall.exe as administrator and it installed. Had to create new .qhi file and then once Inventory Manager is running use file open to open my existing .qhi file created previously with Essentials Home Inventory. All seems to be OK now!!

I went down much the same path - installed Home Inventory Manager from the disk, but then had to find and open the QHIM Application file sitting in with my Program files,  When doing this couldn't find my "old" .qhi file, so I created a new one (that was after trying "convert old inventory file, which only seemed to want to look for a .idb file).  Once the program was up and running I was able to open my "old" file and all has gone reasonably well.  

However, I can't open Inventory Manager from within Reckon Accounts, even though the account is sitting in my Accounts List.  I had to pin Inventory Manager the Start Menu so I can access it easily, and then use the "Update" menu to transfer the data from Inventory to Reckon Accounts.  Not sure if I am missing something - the Help menu doesn't give much guidance.

Not sure about your issue Richard as I can open it from the menu "Property & Debt" in Accounts Personal Plus 2015.

Thanks Malcolm - this morning the link from "Property & Debt" menu was there!  I must have clicked on something that made the connection, so now all is sweet.

I have had an ongoing problem with Inventory Home Manager when I transferred my Reckon files across to a new laptop. Previously I was running OS Windows 7 32 Bit. Now I am running Windows 7 64 bit.
I am starting to think that Reckon Home Inventory Manager is no longer supported.
When I click the link in "Property & Debt" for the Home Inventory Manager I get the following dialogue box:-

Has anyone else had the same problem??
Forgot to mention that I am using the latest 2015 version of Reckon Personal.

I am now receiving the same message and can't open HIM either stand-alone or from within Reckon Personal Plus. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both HIM and Accounts repeatedly without success. Annoyingly, I can see the balance of my HIM account in the the main Accounts and can even see individual entries via various asset reports but simply can't access HIM.

Hi Peter, it sounds like there is an issue locating the datafile, not the  try to run a search on your PC for the Start/Windows > Search programs and files. Enter the file extension which is: .qhi. This will locate the location of your existing Home Inventory Manager datafile. Once located you can select the Browse my comp.... option and locate the file. Note: Make sure if you have multiple files, to check the dates. This should help you work out which one is most accurate.

I can locate the .qhi easily enough. The problem is that the dialogue box just hangs and doesn't allow me to select a file. In fact although I can actually click on any of the 3 options, nothing happens, the box just hangs there until I close the HIM icon.

I had the same issue. I opened the QHI file after opening Home Inventory. Then I switched to Reckon Accounts and accessed HI. It then seemed to be synched.

Deny,

     Hi. Thanks for your reply. Same result however. 

     I have resolved the matter since. Did a web search and found an article at this link

     https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6492235

     So I moved the contents of the folder below, so that is was now empty and HIM then installed OK.

      C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA

Hi Peter,
I had the same identical problem that you have experienced. Mustafa from the Reckon help team solved the problem. They said they would put the solution on the community board for Reckon.

Please see my email below to the team.

Hi John,

 

I want to thank you for taking the time to email us about Mustafa. I’ll make sure to thank him myself for great customer service and support.

 

I have forward it to him so he’ll be happy to hear from you.

I have just downloaded Reckon Personal Plus 2016 and when i try to open Reckon Home Inventory Manager it gives me the message box "RHI does not appear to be installed". then it tells me to install it from my CD which i do not have and neither can I have because I am travelling in Europe and Africa. Can I download the Home Inventory Program or files?  

There is a Quicken folder on my C drive with one file in it and a Quicken Home Inventory Manager folder with a stack of files in it, so I presume my old data is there somewhere. 
I will not be home to access a CD for months or a year. What can you advise me to fix this?
