Re: QB Desktop -

Hello there, @dkhorner.


I'm here to help you today so you'll be able to install your QuickBooks Desktop Pro 2019.


To install your QuickBooks successfully, you can install it through the internet, just ensure that you have the license number with you.


Here's how:


  1. Download QuickBooks Desktop. If the installation doesn't automatically start, double-click the installer file (e.g. QuickBooksPro2018.exe) to continue.
  2. Select Yes to All.
  3. Select Next.
  4. Agree to the Software License Agreement, then select Next.
  5. Agree to the Software License Agreement, then select Next.
  6. Enter your License and Product numbers, then select Next.
  7. Select the type of installation for the computer.
  8. Select where you will be using QuickBooks.
  9. Choose a new install location or select Next to install to the default directory.
  10. Select Install.
  11. Select Open QuickBooks to get started.
  12. Activate QuickBooks and you're all set.
