Moving QB to new machine

I will be moving QBDesktop Premier 2017 from my old machine to a new machine. Will the Migrator Tool work for that and will I be allowed to specify the drive where QB will be installed on the new machine?

Re: Moving QB to new machine

Greetings, @t1000mileman.

Thanks for reaching out to us. I’m here to share some information about moving QuickBooks using the Migrator Tool.

Yes, you can use the tool to reinstall QuickBooks and move the company file to the new computer. It also gives the option to install the program to the drive you specify.

Prepare the license and product numbers to register and download the installation files through this link: Downloads & Updates page. Make sure to log in as the admin user to utilize the Migrator Tool.

When moving the files, use a USB flash drive with enough free space. All information is copied over to the new computer and no data is deleted from the old one.

For more information about the tool, refer to this article: Move to or reinstall QuickBooks Desktop in another computer.

That should get you pointed in the right direction.

Reach out to me if you need anything else, I’m more than happy to help. Have a pleasant day ahead!
