This article will guide you through the installation of QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions 11.0.
If you are receiving an error or have other questions about installing QuickBooks, you can find information in the QuickBooks Install Center.
If you do not have your installation CD, you can download the QuickBooks installation files.
We have more information available if you are looking to Install multiple QuickBooks versions on one computer or if you are Installing the QuickBooks Database Server.
Note: By default the Custom and Network Options window will have in brackets the current settings used for your previous version of QuickBooks (if any). That is, if you had QuickBooks installed on this computer, including the QuickBooks Database Server Manager, the second option (I'll be using QuickBooks on this computer, AND I'll be storing our company file here so it can be shared over our network) [Current Setting] will appear to the right of the option.
If this is the first time QuickBooks will be installed on this computer, you will not have any reference to a current setting.
Examples of these installation types are found in the Help topic when you click the Explain these options in detail link.
Note: These numbers appear on the yellow sticker that comes with your product or an email if you purchase the download. If you have previously registered your product, click the I can't find these numbers link at the bottom of the screen to go online and enter your contact information. Click the Submit button to search our system.
Note: The Replace the version selected below with the version I'm installing now option is only available if the QuickBooks installer detects a previous installation of QuickBooks. That is, if you currently have a previous version of QuickBooks installed and you are upgrading to QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions 11.0, you will have the option as it appears in the image.
By default, the checkboxes Open QuickBooks and Help me get started will be selected. You can clear (deselect) these options before clicking the Finish button if you prefer.
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.
