So long as you have a valid, REGISTERED copy of QBPRO, this should be no problem... You'll need the phone number and ZIP code of the person or entity under which you entered the registration.

Install QB Pro 2008 on the new laptop, register it (you'll need an internet connection) and go ahead and click on help...update quickbooks and let it do it's thing.

Then (If you're using an XP machine...) COPY your intuit directory (usually located at C:\documents and settings\all users\shared doctuments\intuit) over to the new machine in the shared documents folder.

After you have copied the data, open QB Pro and choose "open an existing company", then navigate to where you placed your intuit files and open the company in question.

Quickbooks pro2008- can't seem to update data from a backup


You will need to say "yes". This will install all the data from your business computer so your laptop computer data matches your laptop. The only problem comes if you have made changes on your laptop that you didn't bring over to your business computer. If that is the case, those changes will be lost when you update.

Quickbooks Pro-restoring a back up from a previous version 2005


If is any help - we have just had the same problem.......had version 5 (very old) of QB
changed computer to Vista and would not work so had to buy Pro 208 for Vista . We really had to get in touch with Quickbooks - they send you a free upgrade kit (disc which is Pro 2006 version (not a fuull version but enogh to get the data over) then you load that on your old machine transfer your data to that then copy that again - then load into Pro 2008 - worked fine for us - have come across a hiccup with VAT - but however I guess we are going to have to give in and phone them after the Bank holiday........apart from that everything was fine.

be brave and phone 'em - tech support was helpful.
