I'm here to help you in installing QuickBooks Desktop, kerriecolwell.
We have two options in installing it to your laptop. We can either do it manually or use the Migrator Tool.
If you’re using QuickBooks Desktop 2018 or newer as a single user, you can use the Migrator Tool to move QuickBooks Desktop. Aside from migrating the application itself, this tool will also copy the last 3 company files opened. In this process, you'll need to connect your laptop to the internet and secure a USB flash drive with enough free space to hold your QuickBooks files. Please check out the steps that I've listed below:
First, we'll have to set up the Migrator Tool in your computer:
Once done, you can follow these steps in using the Migrator Tool in your laptop:
For more information about this process, you can visit this article: Move or reinstall QuickBooks Desktop to another computer. This also contains information about how to manually install Quickbooks Desktop to your new computer and what to do next after installing it.
By the way, we also have Intuit Hosting Program which allows you to run your QuickBooks Desktop and store your data files on a service provider's servers. This way, you can use QuickBooks Desktop securely, anywhere and anytime. You can refer to this link to learn more about this feature: What hosting providers are authorized by Intuit?

Hello there, Randy.
Before we start installing your QuickBooks Desktop to your new laptop, let's ensure the system requirements first to avoid issues. You can check out these articles for the compatible operating systems. Just select the version you have:
If your laptop is not wired to your computer, you can back up your company file using our Intuit Data Protect or save it ina a portable storage device. However, if it's wired you can set up and install a multi-user network.
You can use this article for more details in installing your QuickBooks Desktop.
Let me know if there's anything else that you need help with. Take care!
A multiuser license means users are able to access one company file at the same time. If your license is only for a single user, you have to purchase additional seat to do so. Otherwise you may utilize a remote desktop app.
You should be able to install QuickBooks using the same license key you already have and a download link from [Removed link] and restore or copy your QuickBooks Data file to your laptop Reach out to us at [Removed link] if you get stuck. Happy to help.
