Error Description

This error occurs when installing Quickbooks.

QuickBooks Desktop for Windows is updating its product lineup. Starting late 2021, Pro and Premier products will only be sold as Pro Plus and Premier Plus subscriptions in place of one-time purchase licenses.1 In making this transition to subscription only, we commit to focusing our investment to deliver greater value and more impactful features for you and your clients. This transition will also encourage your clients to be on the most recent versions for easier collaboration with accountants. To facilitate this transition, sales of QuickBooks Desktop 2021, one-time purchase versions, will be extended until December 10, 2021. 


The 2022 subscription versions will offer you and your clients additional benefits, including:  

→  Access to the latest version, with the most up-to-date features, security patches, and support for 3rd party operating system changes.2

→  Up to 38% faster, more reliable QuickBooks computing power (64-bit).

→  Unlimited customer support and data recovery at no additional charge (a $299.99 annual value).4

→  Premium time saving and money management features.  

→  Increased productivity with the QuickBooks Desktop mobile app.


Please note that clients on older 32-bit computers will not be able to use the 2022 version, which requires a 64-bit compatible Windows operating system.

These products will be available via QuickBooks Solutions Providers (QSPs) and Intuit sales agents until December 10, 2021.
