According to Intuit, the error “The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource and is unavailable ” can occur if you attempt to do 1 of the following:
- install more than 1 version of QuickBooks from the same product and year, such as an attempt to install 2 versions of QuickBooks Premier 2009 or
- attempt an installation where the installation source file (QuickBooks.msi) is different from the installer used when you first installed QuickBooks
See our related articles on Error 1706 and the installed product does not match the installation source.
Intuit’s own knowledge base article offers additional information.
