Updates to the QuickBooks Server can be downloaded from the Internet. Because the QuickBooks Server is not a full
QuickBooks application, updates must be downloaded and installed manually.
You can either download the update file on the server or you can download the
update file using another computer. If you use another computer, you copy (or save) the update file to the server
and then complete the installation steps on the server itself.
Important: Only users with Windows Administrator permissions can install updates.
The installation steps are done on the server. You can print this topic for reference
by clicking the print icon in the top right corner.

Click Download the update file to your computer.

If you are using another computer to download the update file and want to save the update file directly to the server,
browse in the Save As window to a location on the server to be updated.
Make a note of the location you choose.
If you are using another computer to download the update file and want to manually copy the update file to the server, save the file to a location on that computer that you can easily find again.
