Preparing to install QuickBooks

This article provides instructions for installing QuickBooks in both Selective Startup and Normal Startup.

If you encounter an error while installing QuickBooks, you can go to the troubleshooting section of the Install Center.

If you are looking for the manual update for your version of QuickBooks, check out the Product Updates page.


Detailed instructions
  1. Have your license number and product number for your version of QuickBooks ready.

  2. Insert the QuickBooks installation CD to get started or Download QuickBooks and launch the QuickBooks setup file.
  3. Select your version of QuickBooks below to be directed to another article with step-by-step instructions just for you and your product.

Occasionally, third party applications, such as anti virus and anti-spy ware programs, can interfere with the successful installation of QuickBooks. As a result, you may want to Install QuickBooks in Selective Startup.


 If these steps do not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.
