I installed Desktop Pro 2019 with Express settings, did it install QuickBooks Database Server Manager if I choose to set up Multi User at a later time?

I installed Desktop Pro 2019 with Express settings for one user on one computer. Did it install QuickBooks Database Server Manager if I choose to set up Multi User at a later time? If not can I just install QuickBooks Database Server Manager or do I need to do a complete re-installation?

Yes, even in single user non hosted install the database manager for that year will install. Even in single user mode QB uses database manager to communicate with your company file. You can see it as an installed process by looking at Task Manager. 

 

If you want to set up multiuser network down the road here are the instructions https://quickbooks.intuit.com/community/Inventory-and-projects/How-to-adjust-inventory-quantity-on-h...

Hello Digimago,

 

You've come to the right place to get help with QuickBooks.

 

In addition to john-pero's answer, QuickBooks Database Server Manager can be run separately. You'll have to manually choose not to include it when installing QuickBooks Pro. 

 

Setting up the database server in the future won't be an issue. Let me provide you the article for more details: Install, Update, and Set up the QuickBooks Database Server Manager

 

Let us know if you have any questions. We'll be right here to help.
