QuickBooks Desktop versions from too long ago aren't available for download. We can't ensure older software will run on newer systems. We don't support or offer downloads for those products.
In line with Intuit's discontinuation plan for older products, discontinued products cannot be registered for the first time. You can re-register discontinued products if they have been registered before and are being reinstalled.
