Re: [WIN8] Can't uninstall a program

said by R2:

I inadvertently installed the 2006 version, I think. It really did NOT complain that much - I think one little warning box saying it might not be compatible. I own 2010 and that was what I meant to install - but I was in a hurry and installed what I found first. DUH.

2010 gives the exact same warning, so I went to Google and found out that (reportedly) only 2013 will work on Win 8, so I did not install 2010. Maybe I should give it a try, but I really don't want TWO messy, uninstallable programs on my lap top!!

Too late to restore - I am been updating this thing all along trying to make it usable....

Here is what Scott Gregory (?) QuickBook experts says:

"Any version of QuickBooks prior to 2013 is not supported on Windows 8. QuickBooks 2013 will be supported once a compatibility patch is issued to registered users. (add: this patch is supposedly available now).

Unless you really like to go out there on the "bleeding edge" of software, I would not even attempt to make an older version of QuickBooks work on Windows 8. You may get lucky. Then again, you may get an ongoing migraine headache too..."

I don't need more headaches....

Yep QB 2012 works fine on Windows 8 Pro, just the print to PDF does not work until you install something.

As for 2010, I can't say

Thanks Razzy. I think this guy sums up Intuit's attitude quite well:

"It's compatible (2012) but you cannot email anything (PO's, receipts, ets) - if you call Intuit they use their usually lack of customer service skills to try and upsell another product. God Forbid that Intuit would have been working on this before now, but the "customer service" rep - or I should say sales rep - told me that they're "looking into this"...but the only current work-around is to buy QB13. Knowing how QB's goal is sales only and not support, I wouldn't count on this happening soon, if at all. "

That guy wasn't aware of the workaround. And it appears 2011 works fine in Windows 8

Yeah, with the funky workaround for the PDF generation. I need my account reconciliation to be functional! Likely I'll just have to get 2013 to avoid any problems....

Account reconciliation works fine here but it is indeed a good idea for you to get 2013 if you can. I might get 2013 in a couple months too. My business is lost without it...
