How to get my 3 seats of Quickbooks Pro Desktop functioning on a network properly?

I installed QB Desktop Pro 2019 on my wife's Win 10 pc.  Generated the company files there, stored there.  I then installed on a 2nd Win 10 pc, had to get phone help to connect 2nd pc to files on wife's pc.

 

2nd PC died, I have now installed QB on a 3rd pc (Win 7), but do not know how to make it access the company files on her pc.  It's Sunday and the Help folks are not around on the phone of course.

 

Anyone know how to make this work?

You can set up a multi-user network and make your wife's computer as the host computer, WWuertz.

 

To turn on hosting:

  1. Click File, then Utilities.
  2. Click Host Multi-User Access.
  3. Click Yes on the confirmation window.

Then, follow the step-by-step instruction found in this article on how to completely set up multi-user: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/community/Help-Articles/Set-up-multi-user-network/td-p/203684.
