Problem starting Turbo Tax 2010 in Windows Ultimate Edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was able to launch Turbo Tax 2010 using Windows 7 Home Premier Edition, but after previously running using Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, I am able to install, and download updates, but unable to launch it using the Ultimate Edition now.  I have tried to launch as an administrator, and in XP mode compatibility mode, 256 colors and reduced screen resolution, all with the same results.  I have used Microsoft Clean Boot also suggested without success.

    Upon launch I get an error code message 20879149089 after program searches for solutions.

    One Tech Agent from Intuit said they were having similar problems with the Ultimate Edition of Windows 7.  Another told me to contact Microsoft Tech Support as it appeared to be a windows problem.

    My only suggestion is to try the Windows Premier Edition  which does work with the Turbo Tax program.

    Any other suggestions or solutions would be greatly appreciated.
