      The error code 1904 pop up on the computer screen usually caused by an incorrect file setting or damaged file. And this error can also occur if you are installing QuickBooks Desktop after upgrading your operating system (such as from Windows Vista to Windows 7) and your computer was not rebooted after the upgrade.

      But do not worry about it, Here I have some instructions to share.
