Testing QuickBooks 2015 with Windows 10
With Windows 10 now released, I though it would be worth checking that the desktop version of QuickBooks 2015 works okay with the new Windows operating system. There have been problems in the past when the newly released Windows operating systems have been incompatible with latest desktop versions of QuickBooks.
Windows 10 was released on 29th July 2015. It is a free update to most people with Windows 7 or Windows 8. If you are wondering where Windows 9 went to, it has been suggested that to the German speaking market it would sound like Windows No!
I tested the installation on a spare laptop that I have. It usually pays to be cautious when adopting new technology. In the first weeks and months of a new operation system release there are usually incompatibilities that get noted and fixed at a later date. So I will not be installing Windows 10 on my office PC until I am certain that the majority of this problems have been worked out.
Installing QuickBooks 2015 Desktop version
I installed the latest version of QuickBooks 2015 desktop (this is currently QuickBooks 2015 Release 6) on to my spare laptop.
QuickBooks 2015 and Window 10 results
So far after a couple of days of testing I couldn’t find any incompatibilities with QuickBooks 2015 and Windows 10. Hopefully this will stay the case but if I pick up any problems with QuickBooks I will report back via this block.
