I am attempting to migrate a Quickbooks server. The clients utilize QB 2015 Pro and have no interest yet in upgrading. I need to ensure that the company file will work and need a test installation of QB 2015 for my desktop to connect.
$200/license is all that is stopping them from QBPro 2020 and guaranteed to be suported through 2022?
I would suggest having a sit-down-come-to-Intuit talk with them. But aside from dragging them into this decade you can ask them to (in violation of the EULA I am sure) download, if they can, a copy of the ir software purchase from their camps.intuit page. It should still be good to download to a "second" allowable device
That's a good question mdurci. The only trial we offer is for the newest version of the product, QuickBooks Desktop 2020. But, If you have a license for that year of QBDT, you can download it from the downloads and update pages. If your client feels comfortable, they could also let you use their license. Here's our article on how to install QuickBooks Desktop as well if that may be of help to you. Have a great day, and f there's anything else I can do let me know.
Hey mdurci. I appreciate you coming back with your question. The answer is no, it won't have an effect on your client using their product. However, if you're trying to test multi-user mode, there may be restrictions based upon the license they have. I also have an article about installing the QuickBooks Database Server Manager that has helped me in the past. If there's anything else at all, you know where to find me.
