QuickBooks error 6094 usually occurs when a third party Antivirus/Internet Security program is blocking QuickBooks. Below steps can help you understand and resolve the problem:

If you are using PC Tools Security Software-

  • Go to the Quarantine option from the Settings menu
  • Look for qbdmgr.exe and qbdmgrN.exe and click Restore
  • Then add an exception for QuickBooks, go to Settings
  • Click on Global Action List, and  choose Add
  • Now, browse and select the files mentioned in step (b) & Click OK


If you are using AVG Antivirus Software-

  • Open AVG and go to Resident Shield option
  • Click on Add Path, then add C:\Program Files\Intuit in the list
  • Click on OK to save
  • Then from AVG and go to Virus Vault
  • Restore the QuickBooks related files & Click on close


In case you are using an Antivirus or Security software other than the ones mentioned above, you can refer to the user manual provided by the manufacturer and follow the steps.
