QBFC 5.0

What is QBFC?

QBFC 5.0 is a set of .NET classes which allow you to build XML requests that QuickBooks can understand using objects. It also wraps some other QuickBooks COM components that allow you to send those XML requests to QuickBooks, so that QuickBooks can process them.


The most common release is 5.0.00203.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named QBServerUtilityMgr.exe. The setup package generally installs about 135 files and is usually about 8.74 MB (9,160,320 bytes). The installed file QBExcel2003ReportUpdater.dll is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
