Peachtree 2019 Excel Button Disabled

Is your Peachtree 2019 Excel Button Disabled or it’s greyed out? Here are some of the causes due to which the error takes place:

  4. You haven’t logged into this system as a local administrator to this system.

Here are the solutions that help you solve the issue of Peachtree 2019 Excel Button Disabled

Option 1:

  1. Turn the option “Open Peachtree with ‘Run as Administrator’” off.
