Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 v1803 update targets QuickBooks users. The tech giant just released a new cumulative update for PCs running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. The update is KB4338548 (OS Build 17134.83). The patch brings a pretty valuable fix for an older issue where the 2017 and 2018 versions of Intuit QuickBooks Desktop cannot run in multi-user mode on Windows 10, version 1803 devices.
The QuickBooks multi-user mode service fails to start
On Microsoft’s official support page, the company states that the QuickBooks multi-user mode service doesn’t start and it displays error “Windows could not start the QuickBooksDBXX service on Local Computer.” and “Error 193: 0xc1”.
Microsoft also tells us that the update doesn’t include any known issues. To download this build, you will have to head over to Windows Update on your computer and check for updates.

The multi-user mode in QuickBooks allows more users to collaborate on the same company file and also at the same time. All the users must be networked, and they all have to own a QuickBook license.

The multi-user mode that allows more than one person to work on a company file at the same time results in increased collaboration and productivity. This also enhances accuracy because the users will be all working with the latest data. More than that, this will make sure that all data remains protected because there can be set individual user access as well. To enable the multi-user mode, all you have to do is head over to the File menu in QuickBooks and choose the Multi-User Mode.
If you need five or more users who can access the QuickBooks at the same time, you can check the QuickBooks Online Edition and the QuickBooks Enterprise solutions products.
