As of the date of this post, here is the word from QuickBooks support regarding the compatibility of QuickBooks and Windows 8...
"Any version of QuickBooks prior to 2013 is not supported on Windows 8. QuickBooks 2013 (when released), will be supported once a compatibility patch is issued to registered users. No date has been provided for the release of this patch."
UPDATE: QuickBooks 2013 is here!
- Details and discounts on QuickBooks Pro 2013, QuickBooks Premier 2013, QuickBooks for Mac 2013
- QuickBooks Enterprise 2013 - details and discounts
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...
What are you hearing about QuickBooks and Windows 8? Is it different than what I have been told by the QuickBooks support group?
