Problem open Quick Books on second computer

I have Quick books 2014 and need to have it on 2 computers. It opens find on the first computer but on the second computer it wants to change the password every time we login. How do I get around this problem? I have it set to multiple users. Both computer are windows 10.
Thank you.

I'm currently using Reckon Accounts 2015 (Aussie version of QuickBooks) but the process was pretty much the same with previous QB versions.

  • First off, you'll need two licenses (or seats) 1 for each computer QB is installed on
  • Ensure you are accessing the QBW file via a mapped network drive on the second computer, not a \\ unc path
  • Finally, make sure both computers have their own QB login accounts and passwords. Configure this on the computer hosting the QBW file. I'm assuming a File Server is not involved in the mix here.

Assuming you've installed QB correctly for a multi user environment, that should be all there is to it. Let us know if you need additional assistance.

Hope that's helpful.
