Update multiple computers from a single QuickBooks update file

Recent updates for QuickBooks are available on the Intuit Web site. You can use one of two methods to download an update:

  • Download updates automatically from inside the QuickBooks program by selecting Help > Update QuickBooks. Each workstation where QuickBooks is installed can use that method to download and install the latest updates.
  • Download an update manually from the QuickBooks Web site, and then save and use that update program to update other workstations. You can download an update file once and then use it multiple times.


Important: All QuickBooks downloads have the same file name, qbwebpatch.exe. If you want to download multiple updates, rename each download as you receive it. For example, if you are downloading an update for QuickBooks for Windows 2013 R5, name the download file qbwebpatch V13 R5.exe.
