Quickbooks Pro 2018 desktop

I have Quickbooks Pro Desktop 2018.  Bought in 2018.  Have used 5 yrs.  Didn't register.  Now recently had laptop repaired.  Wiped all software.  Reinstalled Quickbooks Pro Desktop 2018.  Have license number and key.  Installed OK.  Won't activate.  Says I need to update my software.  Did all updates in Quickbooks.  Restarted.  Still won't activate and says I need to update my software to activate.  Help?

Hi there RandyDyxe,


It's vital that you have access to your QuickBooks software in order to manage your books. QuickBooks Desktop is a robust program able to help you keep track of sales and expenses in order to see the profit of your company. I can point you in the right direction for assistance with activating your QuickBppos Desktop program.


For help with activating your QuickBooks Desktop program after a new install, you'd need to reach out to the QuickBooks Desktop support team outside of the Community. They'll be able to view the details you have entered with you in a secure setting in order to get it set up correctly so you can manage your books. You can reach them using the methods outlined in the QuickBooks Desktop software support policies.
