Yes, Stellar Repair for QuickBooks® Software supports the UK version of QuickBooks® software. In order to repair your corrupt company file created in QuickBooks® UK version, follow the steps given below.

But Before We Begin

Make sure that the following prerequisites are met:

  • Create a blank target company file (QBW) that will be used to store all the recovered data. 
  • The target company file should be created with the same version of QuickBooks® as that of your corrupt database.
  • Close the newly created company file and the QuickBooks® application.

Steps to Repair Corrupt QBW File with Stellar Repair for QuickBooks® Software

Step 1: Launch the software. On the main interface, click 'Browse' to select the QuickBooks® company file (.QBW) you want to repair. If the QBW file is not available, you may also select a backup file (QBB) to recover the company file data. If you can’t locate the file (QBW or QBB), use the 'Find' option to locate the file in any folder, subfolder, or local drive.

Step 3: After selecting the file, do the following:

3.1. If you’ve selected a QBW file without a backup file (QBB), review the selected QBW file, and then click ‘Scan.’

Step 7: Once the repair is finished, you’ll see a dialog displaying the message 'Repair Process Completed Successfully'. Note that if the repair results are not satisfactory, you can try to recover the QuickBooks® data from a backup file (QBB).
