  3. In the QuickBooks Update Utility window, click Browse if you need to change the path to your QuickBooks 2005 program. Click Install, and then follow the onscreen instructions to finish the update process.

    Note: There may be a delay or pause of up to 60 seconds at 84% to 86% of the update. Do not cancel the update. Allow it to finish and QuickBooks will be updated correctly.

  4. When the installation is complete, restart your computer.
  5. Open QuickBooks, and then check the current program release.
