ProSeries updates are out of sync

SOLVEDby IntuitProSeries Basic3Updated July 13, 2022

After updating ProSeries 2019 and prior, the program does not open but shows an error saying, "ProSeries updates are out of sync."

Before you start:

  • This issue is most common when ProSeries installed on a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. ProSeries does not support NAS devices. If you are having this problem and are running ProSeries on a NAS device, the software will need to be installed on a supported operating system.
  • The Admin workstation needs to be fixed first and then each and every workstation on the network.
  • Ensure the correct version of the Gist file is the most up to date version before resolving the workstation. The version number for the  wgistlibs-17753-17766.ver referenced for the workstations will increase or change with each update of the ProSeries program.
  • This article references default installation paths and uses YY to reference the tax year in 20YY format. C: will always indicate the local drive and X: will always indicate the network drive.
