    Welcome to the forum dedicated to resolving  QuickBooks Error 6129!  This error typically occurs when you try to create a new company file or open an existing file in QuickBooks. Fortunately, we have gathered some potential solutions to help you overcome this issue. Please note that these solutions are general in nature, and it's always recommended to create a backup of your company files before making any changes.

    Solution 1: Update QuickBooks

    Ensure that you are using the latest version of QuickBooks. Outdated software may contain bugs and compatibility issues that can lead to  QuickBooks Error 6129. Follow these steps to update QuickBooks:

    1. Open QuickBooks and go to the Help menu.

    2. Select "Update QuickBooks Desktop" from the drop-down menu.

    3. Click on "Update Now" in the Update QuickBooks window.

    4. Wait for the update to complete and then restart QuickBooks.

    Solution 2: Rename the.TLG and . ND files

    Renaming the transaction log (.TLG) and network descriptor (.ND) files can help resolve issues related to file corruption. Here's how to do it:

    1. Close QuickBooks on all computers connected in a multi-user environment.

    2. Navigate to the folder where your company file is saved.

    3. Locate the files with the same name as your company file but with.TLG and .ND file extensions (e.g., company file.qbw.tlg and company file.qbw.nd).

    4. Right-click on each file and choose "Rename."

    5. Add ".OLD" to the end of the file name (e.g., company file.qbw.tlg.OLD and company file.qbw.nd.OLD).

    6. Restart QuickBooks and try opening or creating the company file again.

    Solution 3: Disable Hosting on All Computers Except the Server

    If QuickBooks is being used in a multi-user environment, make sure hosting is enabled only on the server. To disable hosting on other computers:

    1. Open QuickBooks on each computer except the server.

    2. Go to the File menu and select "Utilities."

    3. If you see the option "Stop Hosting Multi-User Access," select it.

    4. If you see "Host Multi-User Access," do not select it.
