No worry. All you need is the license key and product number for installing QuickBooks on another system. Users can go to Intuit’s website and download a fresh copy of the installer by entering the product number and license key. After downloading, install the software on the system you desire. For transferring data, you can connect both the systems through a common network. Let’s explore these steps in more details.
Install the .NET Framework before beginning the installation. QuickBooks’ installer requires this framework for working properly. Without this framework installed on your system, you will most likely encounter errors.
Also, get your computer restarted and quit all instances of QuickBooks processes. This you can do that by heading over to the task manager. Select any QB process and right click on it. Then select End Process Tree. This will end all the processes related to QB.
Its not suggested to download the program as it is as this may affect your system and may put your companies financials at risk. Tread with caution. Have a word with your proadvisor or call +1800-940-7442 to ask for help.

You have successfully installed QB on your system without the use of a CD. Now you need to register and activate the software to use it on this new system. Without registering QB, users won’t be able to access company files or even create them. To activate and register QB, follow the steps provided below:
Importing data from one system to another without a CD proposes another problem. This problem can be resolved easily via the use of LAN (Local Area network) wire or a WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) connection. Follow the steps provided below to transfer QB data and company file from one system to another:
You have successfully copied all the data to your new system. Now import this data into QuickBooks and you are good to go. Also, use a Wire instead of a WLAN connection if you want a faster rate of transfer. The speed at which the files transfer will depend entirely on the quality of the wire.
You may have to enable the sharing option on your new system. As soon as you open the Network folder, you can view the option that sharing isn’t enabled. Click on the alert and Enable the option for sharing. After doing this, shared data can be viewed and copied from one system to another.
Both of these can be imported into QuickBooks. For importing your company file in QB, follow the steps provided below:
If you have a company file in .QBB format then clicks on restore a backup copy instead of Open Company file. Upon doing so, QB will automatically convert the .QBB file to .QBW file and restore the data to a new company file. We highly recommend that you save your company file on the C drive as it is more secure. Also, if you reset settings, then you won’t have to change the default company path location in QB.
