Re: need help uploading 2019 software for payroll and desktop

Welcome to the Intuit Community, @Lynne209.


Are you trying to download and install QuickBooks Desktop 2019?


If so, let's go to the downloads and update page to get the version of QuickBooks you've purchased, then install the software.


If you've already purchased your payroll service, you'll need to enter the service key.


Here's how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu,
  2. Select Payroll, then Enter Service Key.
  3. If you have an existing payroll subscription, you'll need to add this file to your payroll subscription.
  4. Select Skip, then you'll be routed to the Service Key window, or Add File.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Enter the service key, then click Next.
  7. Confirm the message, then click Finish.
