I have used Quickbooks Simple Start 2010 for years. I would like to download the software to a replacement desktop. Is the software still available?

Re: QB Simple Start 2010

Good to hear from you today, df10105.

I can help share some information regarding downloading the QuickBooks Simple Start 2010 into another desktop.


Right now, the QuickBooks Simple Start 2010 for Desktop is no longer supported and discontinued. The only way to download the software is through the disk that came with your purchase.


You may need to upgrade to a newer version of QuickBooks to install and download the software to your new desktop. Before installing and using QuickBooks Desktop, it is important to know the necessary system requirements. This will ensure that QuickBooks is compatible with your computer and will help avoid problems when you start using the program. After that, you can create a backup copy of your company file and restore it.


However, updating your file with such a long jump might give you an error while upgrading. It would be best to reach out to our QuickBooks Desktop Support to help guide you more in installing your software and updating your file.


  1. Within your QuickBooks Desktop, click Help at the top menu bar.
  2. Click Contact us.
  3. To route you to the correct support expert, we need to know what type of question you have. Give a brief description of your issue and click Continue.
  4. We’ll provide you a few options. You choose which one is best for you.
