In case of Patch installation error "Server file
failed to load … Index and length …"
instructions here:https://www.quicken.com/support/patch-error-unable-check-updates-server-file-failed-loadIf the error message is about a file named "wyserver.wys", the
problem is the Windows User Account name. If your Windows User files are
located in a folder named, for example,
"C:\Users\John Doe\..." (with a blank space between John and Doe)
you need to create a new Windows User Account with Admin privileges and a name
that does not contain a blank space, e.g., "John". Use the new
account to install or update Quicken. Afterwards return to using your regular
Windows User Account for running Quicken and doing all other work, as usual.
If the user name is
not the cause, try to enable and use the hidden Administrator account.
how to do that. Supposed to work in all Windows versions.
At your next
migration to a new Windows version I recommend changing the username to remove
the blank space. It's a holdover from old Windows versions using the obsolete
"Documents and Settings" folder structure.
I forgot what the patch is supposed to fix. Hope it's not major as most of the Quicken crew might not be around to fix things.
Anyone else seeing the below after installing R37.65 when clicking Help->Release Notes?:
To date, every Quickbooks update was installed within the program. Why is R37.65 a separate setup file? Will it be part of the program update in the future? Can I wait until then?
