QuickBooks is the revolutionary software in the Accounting and Management industry. It uses inbuilt and third-party applications to provide its Users with high efficiency and precision. Sometimes Users want to connect some web-based program to QuickBooks, and they might run into QuickBooks Web Connector error when they start the computer.

QuickBooks Web Connector Error QBWC1085

The error message on your screen will be one of the following:

  • “QBWC1085: Unable to write to the log file. QuickBooks opens without writing the log file.”
  • “QBWC1085: Problem within the log. QuickBooks Web Connector will continue without opening the log file.”

If the Web Connector cannot access the QWCLOG.txt file or if it is damaged, the User will have to face the “Exception Type Error Unknown name” error on their screen.

How To Resolve The QuickBooks Web Connector Error?

If your QuickBooks is not connected to any Third-Party application and still you are facing this QBWC1085 error, we highly recommend that you remove the Web Connector from the Startup Menu.
