Hello there, ddeluca!
I'd be glad to help you download the QuickBooks Database Server Manager (QBDBSM).
You'll need to use the same installer wizard for QuickBooks Desktop. Once the software is installed, the QBDBSM comes with it.
To download the installer, please visit this link: https://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/ProductUpdates.aspx.
Then, follow the QuickBooks installation process.
Another option is to install the QuickBooks Database Server Manager alone depending on your network set-up. Run the same installer wizard and during the installation process, choose the option "I will NOT be using QuickBooks on this computer" (take a look at the screenshot below).
Please visit this article for more information: Install, Update, and Set up the QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
That's it! It's really not a hard process at all, but let me know if you need any help. Take care.
You would think that there would be a link in the server manager program to check the version and to get the latest update. Do they have any programmers on staff?
Can confirm. The installer required a license and product code before allowing me to choose not to install the full desktop application.
Hello there, customers.
I’d be delighted to clarify about installing the QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
@stevesw and @Tim Rogers you’re correct, when installing the software it’s required that you enter the license and product numbers. @Bill_kfs in regard to the QuickBooks Database Server Manager’s version, you can check it by going to the Control Panel and listed as QuickBooksDBXX. Notate XX represents the version number.
I’m adding a link with detailed instructions on how to install the QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
The information and article I provided should point you in the right direction installing the software.
Let me know if you have any other concerns. Please know the Community has your back. Wishing you the best.
