Let us consider a practical scenario. Suppose you use Intuit QuickBooks 2008 to meet your basic  business accounting needs. One day as you try to open your company file, you encounter the below error:

'QuickBooks is unable to open this company file. It may have been opened by another user. You should ask that user to switch to Multi-user mode so you can both use the company file at the same time.... (-6073,-816)'

The above error may show up due to any of the following reasons:

The QuickBooks server and the client workstation are using different versions of QuickBooks.
You do not have sufficient permissions to access the company file.
The network data and transaction log files are marked as hidden.
Your system fails to communicate with the QuickBooks server over the network.
Your QuickBooks company file is corrupt.
Several computers are running as hosts to the company file.

How to Fix QuickBooks File Error (-6073,-816) ?:

Initially, make sure all computers that have the company file opened currently, are using the latest QuickBooks version.  
Quit the QuickBooks application on all workstations having access to this file.
Get to the single user mode on the computer that should be hosting this company file. Now, switch back to the multi-user mode.
Next, disable multi-user access on all the other computers. To do this, open QuickBooks without opening the company file. Now, go to 'File'>'Utilities' and select 'Stop Hosting Multi-User Access'. You should do this for every computer other than the host one.
Make changes to the QuickBooks server's configuration to enable multi-user access.
Try opening the company file in QuickBooks. If you encounter the error again, check your firewall settings.
