To move QuickBooks from one computer to another:
The location where QuickBooks automatically stores your company data files depends on your operating system and QuickBooks version:
Default Company File Location
Windows 8, 7 or Vista
If you upgraded from an earlier version to QuickBooks 2007 or later, your data file might have been moved to the default company file location for your new version.
If you have QuickBooks 2006 or earlier versions, your company data file is in the same folder where it was located prior to installing QuickBooks.
Refer to the following resources for information about installing QuickBooks in a multi-user environment:

A Linux computer can only be used as a database server to store shared company data files. For more information, refer to Run QuickBooks on Linux and Preparing to install Linux Database Server Manager.
To install QuickBooks on a Macintosh, refer to Installing or reinstalling QuickBooks on a Macintosh.
