Upgrade QB server manager?

You've reached the right place for help, User322. 


The Database Server Manager is a part of the QuickBooks Desktop file. QuickBooks creates a new Windows user for each version of Database Server Manager. Also, it updates automatically whenever you update QuickBooks Desktop. Here's how: 

  1. Download the patch from Update QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release. The patch for the server is the same as the patch for the workstation.
  2. Reboot the server after the patch installation completes.
  3. On the workstation, after the server has been updated, you may get the following message: The company file needs to be updated to work with this version of QuickBooks Desktop.
  4. There will be a prompt to create a backup which is required since these updates can modify the database structure.
  5. Follow the prompts and after backup is completed, you should be able to open the file.
