Using version 2007 Quickbooks

I am still using my old version 2007 Quickbooks, I use for my own personal track of expenditures; but no longer for the business. I have not been able to open the file because the prompt keeps asking me to register; how do I remove that to open the file?

Using version 2007 Quickbooks

Help has arrived, @thePage.


QuickBooks Desktop 2007 is a discontinued version of QuickBooks. To use this, you'll have to ask for a validation code to re-register the program. To do so, you'll need to reach out to our support team to get the code since they are the one who use tools to generate it for you.


Here's how:


  1. Select the Help menu.
  2. Click QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Hit Contact us.  qbdtcontact1.JPG
  4. Enter Register QuickBooks, in the Tell us more about your question box.
  5. Tap Search.
  6. Choose either Call us or Message usqbdtcontact2.JPG

Did you reinstall it? Try contacting Support, yet I am not sure they will give the activation code for old version (i.e 2009 or older). Consider using Mint for free to manage your personal finance.

No there was no resolve to my question. First with the 2007 Quick books version there is no window for Help that is the same as newer versions.


And it is not about activating the account just renewing the registration because Intuit still controls the use of its product even though it is out dated. Hmmmmmm

And no I do not wish to use Mint for free when for that matter I can use Excel!!!!

I am thinking no one there knows how to re-register my 2007 software other than the young lady that helped me back in August of 2019?
