Use Multi-User mode in QB Premier 2019 with both a Windows 7 Professional and a Windows 10 Professional computer together

Can I use Multi-User mode in QB Premier 2019 with both a Windows 7 Professional user and a Windows 10 Professional using the same file?

Will the file become an issue after a Windows 10 user works and it saves file on that workstation OS for then a Windows 7 workstation to simultaneously access and/or save or login into file?

We are updating our computer environment (workstations) from 7 to 10; but may be a little transition with different Windows OS.

It’s great to see you in the Intuit Community, StepUP_Stair.

 

Thanks for letting us know the operating system you’ll be using when updating the workstations.

 

Yes, you can use Windows 7 Professional and Windows 10 Professional on the same file without any issues. When setting up the multi-user, make sure each company file is configured to use in a network environment.

 

To help get started installing QuickBooks Desktop, I’m adding an article that will guide you on how to: Set up multi-user network.

 

After completing the steps, turn on the Host Multi-User Access feature. You'll only perform this process for the host computer or where the company file is stored.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Open the correct company file, then go to the File menu at the top.
  2. Scroll down and choose Utilities.
  3. Select Host Multi-User Access.
  4. In the Host multi-user access window, hit the Yes tab.
  5. In the Company file must be closed pop-up, select Yes to continue.
  6. Follow on the onscreen instructions to complete the process.

Great; appreciate much.  We are upgrading most workstations to Windows 10 Pro OS but may have Windows 7 Pro using same file too. 

Yes they will be using through the network environment; the QBW file(s) are hosted on our dedicated server from the various workstation both on local network and/or via remote desktop.
