Thank you for Highlighting this to our attention, Andrea.

It’s my duty that you should be able to install QuickBooks 2018 without getting an error message.

QuickBooks error 1712 occurs when your Operating System is damaged or one of the core Microsoft components that QuickBooks uses is precarious and not functioning correctly. This can also happen after installing or uninstalling something which requires a restart (Some files or components left behind). After restarting, let’s try to install your QuickBooks again.


  1. Visit download page: https://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/ProductUpdates.asp
  2. Click Change and select the product.
  3. On the Version column, choose your product.
  4. Click the Download button.


If these troubleshooting steps do not help you then, you can run the QuickBooks Install Diagnostic Tool to fix a vast variety of errors that you may receive when installing QB 2018.

I’m positive this will take you in the right direction today. Please let me know how it goes by leaving a comment below. I want to make sure this is taken care of. Thanks Andrea.
