What is QuickBooks Error 15215?
Users of QuickBooks regularly access and download the latest versions of the accounting software. If you are also a user of QuickBooks, trying to update your system with the latest version of the software, you’re likely to encounter an error during the process of update.
This is one of the common errors that users face at the time of updating QuickBooks as a result of which the update doesn’t get completed.
Causes of QuickBooks Error 15215
Although the QuickBooks Error 15215 occurs at the time of updating the software, there can be other reasons for the error such as incorrect configuration of Microsoft Internet Explorer. During the process of updating QuickBooks, a few files are normally downloaded and that’s when the software verifies the user’s signature on the files. If and when the software fails to verify the user’s signature on any of these files that are being downloaded, the QuickBooks Error 15215 appears in the system.
Here’s another reason why the error occurs while downloading a payroll update. While the process of download is on, if there is another application that is running in the background, there are chances of a conflict between all these applications running simultaneously. It could be that the QuickBooks Payroll update is unable to connect to the server as the application running in the background is taking up too much bandwidth. Alternately, the QuickBooks Error 15215 can also be caused by a firewall that may block the QuickBooks application from connecting to the server.
How to Fix QuickBooks Error 15215?
There are different ways of fixing the QuickBooks Error 15215 depending on the likely cause of the error.
Rebooting your computer – If you restart your system when facing the error, the application running in the background that is preventing download of files for QuickBooks update, will be forced to either stop or reset itself. This frees up bandwidth for QuickBooks download to complete the update process. If you continue to see the error, check your system again to see if there are any other programs that are running in the background.
Running QuickBooks Desktop in administrator mode – Another option is to run QuickBooks Desktop in administrator mode since this will place it higher in the list of programs and allow it to utilize the necessary resources in order to function without any hassles. To try this option, you should first close your QuickBooks Desktop application; next, right click on the QuickBooks Desktop icon and choose ‘Run as administrator’. If you’re asked, ‘Do you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer?’ Answer ‘Yes’.
