    I keep getting error 15106 whenever I try to update my QuickBooks desktop. I have not been able to update since 2-12-2020. Today I went through all of the steps except reinstalling (and that's because I have multiple company files that I would need to backup and then open again after an uninstall/reinstall).
    I have disabled my antivirus software. I also disabled the Windows Defender firewall. I also went into Components in the Intuit program file and renamed DownloadQB28.old.
    I am still getting the error message "[Error 15106] The update program can not be opened."

    Any other ideas?
