New Release for QuickBooks Version 2010

Good news for users of QuickBooks 2010. A new update (R16) that fixes some previous bugs is now available from Intuit. Some of the changes in the R16 version include Help topics and messages updates, an improved conversion process to the QuickBooks Online Edition, changes of a Payroll system form, and a modification of the upgrading process. If you are already a user of QuickBooks 2010, the next time you load the program you should see a message from Intuit asking for permission to update the product. You can also update manually, by using this link and selecting the QuickBooks product that you use:

QuickBooks 2012 Installation QuickTip

Installing QuickBooks 2012

If you're upgrading to QuickBooks 2012 it's a good idea to install the new version in addition to (not in place of) the old version by changing the installation folder to C:\QB2012 during the install process. Then, when everything is working properly you can remove the older version.  You can create a folder for storing your 2012 company files, e.g. C:\QB2012\CompanyFiles. Creating a discrete location for your 2012 data file prevents QuickBooks from storing files from multiple versions in the same folder.
