What if I just need to update my software?

You can do that on the Downloads & Updates page as well by clicking Update instead of Download.

When you run this installer, it will update your existing software to the latest release instead of reinstalling the product. You won't need your license or product number to do this.


Why isn't my version of QuickBooks available on the Downloads & Updates page?

QuickBooks versions from too long ago are not available for download. Because we can't ensure that older software will still run on modern systems, we do not support or offer downloads for those products.
