Sometimes, when you try to download and install the Free QuickBooks Point of Sale program, you can get a message that it is not a valid win 32 application.


Why is this happening?

This is usually caused when the application does not download completely. When the Windows system tries to run the application, it is not complete.

How to resolve it.

Usually, you will want to delete the file you downloaded.

Then, delete the temporary internet files. ( this is going to vary from browser to browser).

Once the files are deleted, redownload the application and try to install again.

If this or other errors persist, you may have a damaged Windows Installer. I would search for information on repairing the installer on Microsoft’s website.
