Why does the check for updates feature not work when I click on it? I can't seem to update my software.

The software doesn't even check for updates.


Hi, thank you for using Intuit ProFile Community

You could try running ProFile as administrator. See-ad.png-Right click on the ProFile icon on your desktop and select Run as Administrator, click ok/yes if you get a user account control. Then try to update.

If that does not work, you could try a repair by downloading the installation program, ( gpsetup.exe). There is an article for running a repair at:


You can also give us a call at 1-800-452-9970 and an agent could assist you.

Hope this helps

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
