In this article, we’ll see how to transfer Quickbooks (along with other programs) from one computer to another, including reports, company files, .QBM and .QBB files, transactions, data and everything else you need for it to function just as on the old machine.
There are two ways to do the transfer. First option is a manual reinstall. In order to do that, you will need to install a new copy of Quick books on the new computer (assuming you have the installation media, and have the license information written down). Then, you’ll need to find and copy your data, your reports, your settings and configurations. Of course, there is a better way.
In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to transfer Quickbooks from one computer to another, automatically – using Zinstall WinWin – and copy Quickbooks software, data, reports, settings from the old laptop or deskop to the new one. This tutorial works for Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 7, 8/8.1, Vista and XP. For example, you can use this to transfer Quickbooks and your other programs and files from a Windows 10 Dell to a Windows 11 Lenovo, or any other combination.
Let’s see how the transfer is done.
That’s it! You now have Quickbooks, with all of your data and other programs, on your new computer.
