Find out how to check if you’re using Windows 64-bit or 32-bit.
The full capability of a 64-bit processor can be used with QuickBooks Desktop 2022 and 2023. Learn how this improves stability and performance.
QuickBooks Desktop 2022 and 2023 require a 64-bit Windows operating system and won’t run on 32-bit. Because 64-bit systems have been around for a while, you’re probably already using one right now. Most software and hardware purchased after 2012 support 64-bit operating system. You’ll be able to install and run the new 2022 and 2023 QuickBooks Desktop software, provided you meet all the system requirements and run 64-bit Windows 8.1 or newer.
Check which Windows you use
- Select Windows Start .
- Select Settings .
- Select System, then About.
Under Device specifications, you’ll see the processor and operating system type.
Your options if you don’t have 64-bit system compatibility
We recommend one of the following:
- Upgrade your computer hardware / Windows operating system, or both, to provide 64-bit compatibility.
- Stay on your current version of QuickBooks Desktop. QuickBooks will continue to be 32-bit compatible with 2021, 2020 and 2019 versions and support terms remain unchanged.
- QuickBooks Desktop provides a 60 day money-back guarantee.
