Install QuickBooks Desktop on a Terminal Server

Learn how to install QuickBooks Desktop on a terminal server, so multiple users can access the company file over the network.

To check whether your server is compatible with QuickBooks, see QuickBooks Desktop system requirements.

Important:

Live phone support is only provided to QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Solutions users but system-related issues are not supported. Here are some of the non-supported issues:
  • Setting up, configuring, or enabling terminal services
  • Enabling clients to connect to the server
  • User permission issues for server connections
  • Issues with terminal server connections (example: connecting to the server or dropping connection)
  • Latency or slow performance issues

Make sure that you are logged in as the Windows Administrator.
