Please visit our COVID-19 Resources page for useful payroll and reference information. During this time, when many companies are forced to telework, AccountEdge Hosted may be a good option. Host your company file to be accessed remotely from any device, for as long as you need. You can go back to your regular setup when you no longer need remote accessibility.

AccountEdge Quit Unexpectedly (Mac)

If AccountEdge quits as soon as you launch it with the message that "AccountEdge Quit Unexpectedly" this can sometimes be resolved by deleting a specific file.

This will often happen because you have had hardware replaced or you've migrated to a new machine.

To resolve this issue:

  1. Open Finder
  2. Click Go > Go To Folder from menu bar at the very top of the screen
  3. Enter ~/Library/Application Support/Acclivity (in versions previous to AccountEdge 2012 instead type /Library/Application Support/Acclivity)
  4. Delete any files that end in .plist (ex: AccountedgeneLicenseUS20.plist)

After deleting this file the software should open and will ask you to Register.
