Quickbooks 2015 will NOT install on Windows XP

quickbooks pro 2015 does not install on Windows XP

For all the folks out there still running Windows XP, you will be in for a surprise when you go to upgrade Quickbooks. Starting with Quickbooks 2015, you can not install it on Windows XP. I haven’t tried all the possible workarounds yet, but the installer will check to see if you are running Windows XP and will prevent you from continuing. You can also see the list of requirements for Quickbooks 2015 here.

If I discover a workaround, I will post it. However, I highly recommend that you upgrade to Windows 7 or later. It’s way past time for you to upgrade. 😉

  1. I had to buy a new laptop and it came with Windows 8. I am currently using QB Enterprise solutions 10.0. I know that QB won t support it, but can I install the QB ES10.0 from the CD and load the data from my backup disk?
