    Hi I am getting quickbooks Error (-6177, 0). Can you help me with that?
    I have gone through with these two solutions from intuit community.

    This error indicates that QuickBooks could not use the path to the company file.

    Intuit recommends 3 solutions for this problem. The first solution may solve your problem, or you may need to try all 3 to resolve the issue. For best results, perform the solutions in the order shown.

    Solution 1: Be sure your version of QuickBooks is updated to the latest release

    If you still encounter the error, try solution 2.

    Solution 2: Download the QuickBooks Connection Diagnostic Tool

    Estimated time: 20 minutes

    Download the QuickBooks Connection Diagnostic Tool from Additional Resources and follow the wizard to install and use the tool.
    Note: Instructions for using the tool can be found on the How to Use the Tool tab.

    If you see File Open successful (all Advanced statuses have green checkmarks,) your network connection is OK, and you should be able to open the file.

    Kindly help me
