Hi Smith,

When the QuickBooks company file moved from one machine to another or to another drive the permission properties will be affected, and the file integrity needs to be checked.


  • Open the location of the company file.
  • Right click on the file and select Properties.
  • Click on the Security window.
  • Select all the users one by one and provide Full Control by clicking on the check box next to allow.
  • Click on the Advanced button and navigate to the Owner tab.
  • Change the owner to the Administrator or to the person who has logged in to the system.
  • Click on OK to close the Advanced Security Settings and OK again to close the file properties window.
  • Please open the following location to download and install the QuickBooks Connection Diagnostic Tool.
  • Click the following link to download the diagnostic tool –
  • Enter your e-mail address and check the option I agree to the terms and conditions and click on Download Tool button.
  • Once downloaded, double-click on the file to install the tool.
  • Click Start > All programs > QB connection diagnostic tool > QB connection diagnostic tool on your Windows operating system.
  • Under Test Connectivity, click on Browse and select the company file and click on Test Connectivity.
  • If you see File Open successful (all Advanced statuses have green check marks) your network connection is working fine, and you should be able to open the file.
  • Try opening the QuickBooks company file again.
I hope this helps.

Don't worry Mr. Edwards this is a common error of QuickBooks that can be fixed very easily. A few days back I came across with this error as well.
What I did was that I googled this error and found a solution on article which I will leave a link so that you can read the detailed solution.

Here is the link for the article- QuickBooks Error 6177, 0 Solution

So let me provide you the solution in short if you can understand-

  • Change the Company file location to avoid location error.
  • Update you QuickBooks to fix most of the errors.
  • Use QuickBooks File Doctor on the computer receiving an error message.
  • Delete ".ND" files.
  • Optimize Database manager
