The question of the day is - will QuickBooks work with Windows 7?
The answer is - it depends (seriously!).
Here's the scoop from the QuickBooks support site...
"QuickBooks 2010 is compatible with Windows 7. QuickBooks 2009 and older versions may install on Windows 7 successfully, however, Intuit's Technical Support of Windows 7 is limited to QuickBooks 2010 products only."
In addition, issues relating to QuickBooks not opening and Google desktop crashing when using QuickBooks 2007, 2008 or 2009 with Windows 7 have been identified. Intuit indicates these problems will be fixed in QuickBooks 2010.
Unless you really like inflicting a lot of pain on yourself over a long period of time, if you are planning on moving to Windows 7, you will want to budget for an upgrade to QuickBooks 2010 as well.
Otherwise, if you phone QuickBooks support with a problem running QuickBooks 2009, 2008, 2007 or older on Windows 7, the first thing you will be told is "they can't help you."
