QuickBooks Error 6073: QuickBooks is unable to open this company file…

This error is usually caused by any of the following:

  • The files are hosted on a Linux server and are using more than one set of login credentials to sign on to the shared folder.
  • The file is being accessed using a remote software (LogMeIn, GoToMyPc, etc.) and the host computer still sees that that user is still logged on.
