Hi to all,
I would concur on what JustinG said.
QuickBooks 2014 is well matched with Windows 8 when we tested it on that platform. Since Microsoft Windows has the recent updates (from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1) changes have to be examined and reviewed.
The said updates were sent out after we released QuickBooks 2014 and because of this - most customers have been affected, so as with the program as a whole.
Most of these issues have been reported and we are working to address all.

I run QuickBooks Pro 2008 on a small network of 2 computers Windows running 8.1. Other than not creating .pdf files I have no problems. It does make back ups. It will display a message saying 'Verifying data integrity' and then a message saying - Not responding. However, it is backing up the files and gives a progress report as it finishes.
People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
