When the QuickBooks Integration Manager (QBi) is launched, it checks for updates and connects to the Web TimeSheet. After it connects successfully to Web TimeSheet, it tries to connect to QuickBooks during which it launches a secondary window of QuickBooks, which gives the following message:

The secondary window of Quick book is open and would have restricted access as compared to the primary window.

This prevents the user to integrate and transfer data from Web TimeSheet to QuickBooks. Because, if the secondary window is closed then the QuickBooks Integration Manager gives an error message stating the QuickBooks is not open.
However, when QBi is launched on a computer running Windows XP, it connects to QuickBooks without any error and it does not open a secondary window.
