Can you install QB Desktop locally and on the server?

Our company uses QB Desktop Enterprise on a server. I need to work with the QB SDK and Web Connector, but I am not an admin on the server version. I have tried and it won't let me. I tried to have the admin use her credentials, but no luck.

 

Can I install a copy of QB on my computer and not have it interfere with the server version?

Thanks for reaching out to the Community, @ajsmith2020.

 

You can install the QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) locally. However, you need to access the server in order to use the QB SDK and Web Connector. I suggest contacting your company admin so he/she can add or permits you to access the server version.

 

I also suggest visiting our separate online forum called Intuit Developer Community. The developer site can provide specific information about managing third-party application connected to QBDT

 

Here's the link: https://developer.intuit.com/app/developer/homepage.

 

Please know that I'm only a post away if you have any other questions or concerns. I'll be here to help. Have a wonderful day!

I might just setup a virtual server and install QB that way. I'll definitely check out the other forum. Thanks!
