Unlocking QuickBooks

You can start using a new edition of QuickBooks simply by unlocking the edition that meets your needs.

During the unlock process you will be given a validation code. You will only need your validation code later if you need to unlock another installation of QuickBooks. For example, if you unlock the version of QuickBooks you use at the office and you need to unlock the same installation you used for your laptop at home, you will use the same validation code to unlock each installation.

If you have a trial edition of QuickBooks

  1. Go to the Help menu and click Buy QuickBooks.

  2. Follow the onscreen instructions to receive the unlock code and turn the trial into a full version.

If you already have a full version of QuickBooks and want to unlock an edition with more advanced features or that is designed for your type of business

  1. Go to the Help menu and click Buy QuickBooks Premier Edition.

  2. Choose an unlock method:

    • If you unlock by phone, you will receive a new Product number from the sales representative. You may also receive a validation code to register your new edition of QuickBooks at the same time. If you do not use the validation code during unlock, you will need to register your new edition of QuickBooks later. You will also receive a CD for your new edition to use on additional installations.

    • If you unlock online, QuickBooks will automatically store your new Product number. QuickBooks will reopen in the edition you unlocked and you will need to register your new edition of QuickBooks. You will also receive a new CD for your new edition to use on additional installations.
