I have a client, runs QuickBooks2011 PremierPlus Contractor on her Windows 7 computer. I installed a SBS 2010 Essentials and setup a domain network with all PCs and laptops running Windows 7 and domain network, I did this a few months ago.
Today she called me and asked if I could install her QuickBooks so multi users can open up the same company database. She said she tried setting it up as a muti user without using the SBS 2010 Essentials server. She installed on a total of two PCs Windows 7 and she cannot get it to work.
At a diff. company:
The last time I setup QuickBooks so all users could open up the same QuickBooks I installed QuickBooks on a Server 2003 and install QuickBooks on 2 Windows XP Prof. computers. They open up Quickbooks just fine but one at a time which works for them.
I just went to Quickbooks.intuit.com and looked around and found this:
I plan on backing up QuickBooks to an external drive
Instal QuickBooks on server and a total of two PCs Windows 7
On server store the backup on a mapped-shared drive
Open up as multi User
Then on the PCs open up this company database that is on the share drive.
Any suggestions is appricated?
