To find your licence and product number:

  • If you subscribe to a monthly or annual product subscription: You should have received an email with your QuickBooks Desktop licence number and product code. If you haven't received this email, check your junk mail folder.
  • If you bought QuickBooks from our website and downloaded it: The licence number and product code are in the confirmation email.
  • If you bought QuickBooks Desktop from a retail outlet: The licence number and product code are in the inside panel of the folder where the CD is.

If all you need to do is update QuickBooks, check out Update QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release.

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.

Older versions

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.

You can contact us to get the validation code, but assisted support for discontinued products is no longer available.
