Downloads for old versions of QuickBooks Point of Sale Pro (v8)

I have to download the Quickbooks Point of Sale Desktop 12.0 Pro to  my Win 10 Pro, so I can do a financial exchange to QB Pro 2021. Right now it is on my Win 7 PC, with  Office 2010, and I have to update this one to Win 10  and update the Win Office to accept the file exchange. The only thing I can think of is to install the old version onto my new PC.


Because of the lack of compatible CPU, I bought this new PC with Win 10 and Office Home & Student 2019.


Can you help me?


Sincerely, Jodi Jackson

Thanks for providing detailed information about your concerns, Jaxdotr.


Let's ensure you meet the minimum system requirements for the QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale. This will ensure the system is compatible with your setup and help avoid any possible issues when installing and using it in the future.


Once done, you can set up the financial exchange. This is a process of sharing information between two programs. Before proceeding, the following requirements must be performed:


  • Install supported versions of QuickBooks Desktop Pro, Premier, or Enterprise on the same computer where POS is installed. Take note that POS v18 will properly integrate with any supported version of Quickbooks Desktop.
  • Make a backup copy of both your QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale and QuickBooks Desktop files. Create a name that will allow you to differentiate the backup such as QBPOS backup before QB.
  • Do the following in QuickBooks Desktop:
    • Turn on sales tax
    • Turn on inventory
    • Set your preferences to allow Financial Exchange without having QuickBooks Desktop open. While financial Exchange should be run while QuickBooks Desktop is open, you can also do this while the program is closed. To make this possible, set your QuickBooks preferences:
      1. From the Edit menu, select Preferences.
      2. On the left pane, choose Integrated Applications then go to the Company Preferences tab.
      3. From the Applications list, select QuickBooks Point of Sale then select Properties.
      4. In Access Rights tab, select the option Allow this application to read and modify this company file.
      5. Select OK in the Properties window, and in the Preferences window.


For more details, please refer to this article: Financial Exchange Overview.


You may also reach out to your Technical Support to guide you with this process.

Keep me posted on how the steps work. You can post any time if you need further assistance.
