Simple question, but can't find details on QB forums/support KB...

Can I install the QuickBooks Enterprise client on the same system as my QB Enterprise Server application?  Any references to intuit support articles would be helpful.

Thanks!

I'm not sure about this particular version of Quickbooks, but in the past this kind of installation has always required that the software - or at least the shared portion of it - along with the data, must be placed on a drive that has a network share, and accessed via that network share from the workstation it is installed on as a server.

It sometimes helps to have a secondary hard drive or partition just for this purpose, and to set it up as, say, drive Q. Then share it and map it from all the other workstations as drive Q. Or at least set it up so that the local workstation accesses the Quickbooks installation and data from the network share path, as in \\workstation\qbdata, instead of accessing it locally as c:\qbdata. This way, each workstation - including the one acting as a server - accesses the QuickBooks data using the same exact path. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, but not sure that answers my question.  My question is if it is a recommended configuration to have QuickBooks Enterprise Server and QuickBooks Enterprise client application installed on the same computer.

The situation you are referring to is true for Quickbooks Pro/Premier.

I would call the sales line at Intuit and ask them if that is recommended and more importantly, supported.

As this solution gave the most information, it wins.  I ended up just trying the configuration and it worked.
