A driver is inactive or invalid. Please uninstall . . .


D

delish

When I try to execute some functions in Microsoft Office Accounting 2008 &
2009 I get the following error:

A driver is inactive or invalid. Please uninstall the add-in and then
reinstall it. If the problem persists, contact the publisher of the add-in.

I am getting this when trying to import bank files. I also get it when
adding transactions to a bank register.

I had 2008 express installed. I then installed 2007 professional, then 2008
professional, and now 2009 professional. Ever since I installed 2008
professional I've been having this problem.

Any ideas?

Yes, I had the same issues. What it appears to be is a driver that
was in 2007 not in 2008 or 2009. You need to install the SQL Server
Management Studio Express, then you can connect to the database,
locate the table called Dbo.DriverRegistrationTable, open that table
and locate add-in name Microsoft Check Payment Processor, change the
Driver Status to 2. This was the offending driver/add-in in my case.
if it is not the one that is offending on your system change the
driver status to 2 on one at a time until you find the one causing you
the problem.

Best of luck

Hi. I found your post about changing the driver status of Microsoft Check Payment Processor to 2 and it did fix the error message however when I reopened MOA I realized that had caused a much larger problem. I had been receiving the "driver inactive or invalid" error for over a year whenever I entered check payments but once you clicked through the error it still zeroed out the payment due balance and added into everything properly so I just lived with it since I wasn't able to find a fix. Once I deactivated the Microsoft Check Payment Processor it apparently deleted all my old received payments and now all my invoices show a full balance due. Obviously this is not something that can be fixed manually and it would completely screw up my year end reconciliation and tax filing. Fortunately I have a backup I can restore but then I'll be back to dealing with the error message again. Is there any way around this or am I stuck dealing with this irritating message for the life of the product?

Actually, I spoke too soon about being able to restore from a backup-- I changed the driver status of the Microsoft Check Payment Processor back and then restored from a backup but all my recieved payments are still gone! Maybe removing MOA and uninstalling or renaming the MSSMLBIZ sql server will fix this?
