Will Quickbooks enterprise database work on Windows 10

c7c4c7 used Ask the Experts™
We are moving to Quickbooks Enterprise and I am trying to figure out if there is any reason why I need to run the database on a server as opposed to a high powered Win 10 machine.

We don't currently have a server so the expense would be considerably higher if it should be run on a server.

There's no reason the "server" won't run on Windows 10.

yes it does run on windows 10.  I currently run the enterprise edition from my win10 laptop.

Maybe because of share connection limits in the workstation vs server

I have seen as high as 45 users running from a Windows 10 quickbooks "server"  most book keeping does not run that high a user count as other programs are more suited to that high a user load.  
if you need assistance getting that set up please send me a direct message and I can help you get it configured.

as far as there's information about your request it's told, that you should have (with Windows 10) an installation from the scratch... so you might try your initial installation on a virgin system... then connect!

This is no knowledge, it's just what I'd try if confronted.

Best regards,


Thanks for the help
