Step 3:

The next step is the SLA. For those of you who don’t quite know what an SLA is, I’ll give you a concise description.

  • An SLA is a formal service contract between the client and the service provider which defines the service in all its entirety.
  • If you go by my recommendation, you should leave no stone unturned when it comes to this in normal cases. But, we are talking about Intuit here, so you don’t need to sweat on it.
  • Post reading, tick the box which states “I accept the terms of license agreement”.

Step 4: 

Select the “Installation Type” for the designated computer.

P.S. – You can get more knowledge on these installation types from the “Help Topic” after you click the “Explain these options” button in the “Detail” link.

Here are the underlying options available:

  1. “I’ll be using QuickBooks on this computer” – Choose this option if you want to use QuickBooks on the computer in question without having the company file stored in it.
  2. “I’ll be using QuickBooks on this computer & I’ll be storing our company file here, so it can be shared over our network” – Choose this option if you want to access your QuickBooks on the computer via RDP Connection [Remote Desktop Connection]. Moreover, the company file will be stored so it can be shared over the network.
  3. “I will not be using QuickBooks on this computer. I will be storing our company file here so it can be shared over the network (A license is not required for this option).” – Choose this option if no one is supposed to use QuickBooks on the designated computer; which will be used as a server to share the company file with multiple workstations [Which have QuickBooks installed] over the network.

Step 5: Click on “Next” when you have made your selection.

  • By default, the custom and network options will have the “Current Settings” installed from any older version of QuickBooks installed on the computer. In such a case, choose the second option of “I’ll be using QuickBooks on this computer & I’ll be storing our company file here so it can be shared over our network.”
  • However, if QuickBooks is installed on the computer for the first time, there would be no reference to a current setting.

Step 6: Enter the license and the product numbers in the appropriate fields.

QuickBooks License and Product Number


  • These license and product numbers appear on the yellow sticker [Refer to the image above] that comes with your QB product or in the e-mail if you’ve purchased it online.
  • If you have previously registered your product, use the link at the bottom of the screen “I can’t find these numbers to go online” and enter your contact information.

Step 7: Furthermore, just before clicking the “Install” button, you have the ability to change the location where your QuickBooks will be installed in the system by clicking the “Browse” button.

 Note: The option “Replace the version selected below with the version I’m installing now” appears only if the installer detects a previous installation of QuickBooks in the system.
