When trying to install an older version of QuickBooks on a Windows 8 computer from a CD, you may receive an error message that prevents launching the installation program.
The only versions of QuickBooks that are supported are QuickBooks 2013 or 2014, and Enterprise 13.0 or 14.0. If you are using Windows 8 or Server 2012 and QuickBooks 2013 or Enterprise 13.0, you will need to make sure your are on the latest release (at least R4 or later.)
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.
