How to Activate QuickBooks Premier 2007 with Validation Code 15
If you are using QuickBooks Premier 2007 and need a validation code to activate it, you may encounter some difficulties. QuickBooks Premier 2007 is an old version that is no longer supported by Intuit, and you may not be able to get a validation code from them. However, there are some possible solutions that you can try to activate your QuickBooks Premier 2007 with validation code 15.
Solution 1: Check and verify system date and time settings are correct
One of the reasons why you may not be able to activate your QuickBooks Premier 2007 with validation code 15 is that your system date and time settings are incorrect. This can cause QuickBooks to reject your validation code as invalid. To fix this, you need to adjust your system date and time settings to match the current year's date. Here are the steps to do this:
Close QuickBooks Desktop and all its files.
Right-click the time display option in the Windows Task Bar and adjust the date/time.
Click on the Date & Time tab and select the current year's date.
Click Apply and press OK.
Open QuickBooks Desktop and press Help > Activate QuickBooks (if you have a Canadian version of QuickBooks, then you have to start registration for Quick Start > QuickBooks > QuickBooks).
Enter the QuickBooks validation code 15 and press Next.

Solution 2: Reset the .ecml file
Another reason why you may not be able to activate your QuickBooks Premier 2007 with validation code 15 is that your .ecml file is damaged. This file contains the license number and product code that you need to complete the installation process and validate your QuickBooks. A damaged .ecml file can prevent QuickBooks from opening and display an error message. To fix this, you need to delete the .ecml file and re-enter your license and product information. Here are the steps to do this:
Close QuickBooks Desktop.
Make sure that all QuickBooks processes are not running or are closed.
From the keyboard, press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to open the Task Manager.
Click on the Process tab.
Sort the processes alphabetically by clicking on the Processor name header.
Open the Entitlement data folder for your operating system and your QuickBooks version.
On the keyboard, press Windows + R to open the Run window.
Enter the folder location C:\\Program data\\Intuit\\Entertainment client\\version 8 or version 6 and press Enter.
Right-click the EntitlementDataStore.ecml file and choose Delete.
Press Yes to confirm that you want to delete the file.
Open your company file and follow the instructions to register the application.
