Updating quick books
(Links to Enterprise updates were added to this page Dec 2, 2015) General notes on updates: Sometime in 2012, direct downloads of all patches to QB 2005 and earlier became no longer available from Intuit's servers, as well as some of the incremental patches to later versions. Sometime later, certain links to patches for older versions were re-established.
Follow the link in the "Update Page" column to get them (as of Feb 2016, the patch files to QB 2004 and earlier are missing again).
This information can also be found in the file properties for QBW32. If a new release causes problems and you need to go back to a prior release level, there is no built-in rollback capability in Quick Books.
Unless you have a workable Windows Restore Point, you will need to completely uninstall Quick Books, reinstall Quick Books, then run the prior update release installer.
After installing a new version of Quick Books, you update your company data file by opening it in the new version.
This process updates company files from any older version of Quick Books to the newer one.
