Review-QuickBooks 2010, Easier Registration with possible “glitch”
QuickBooks 2010 registration seems much more automated, with as much as possible being handled online. In most cases, this should mean that users who upgrade will have to input less data, which will save them time and trouble.
However, there’s a potential problem that can occur in Steps 3-5 that you need to watch out for. If you begin registration and have a file open, the data in the file will automatically populate the registration fields. If the open file doesn’t contain the information you need to use for registration this could be troublesome. I had a “test file open when I began the registration process”. So in MOST circumstances this should not be a problem.
If you notice that this is happening onscreen, delete the incorrect data and then fill in the correct data.
Step 1 – Begin Registration
Step 2 – An internet connection is established
Step 3 – Create an Intuit Account (option #1) OR sign into your Intuit Account (option #2).
Use Option 1 to create an Intuit Account if this is the first version of QuickBooks that you have purchased OR if you are upgrading from an older version (Quickbooks 2008 or older if I remember correctly).
Use Option 2 to sign into your existing Intuit Account, if you are upgrading from the 2009 version.
Step 4 – Create a New Profile OR Select an Existing Business Profile
If you already have an Intuit Account, after you sign in – you will have an opportunity to Select the Business Profile that Intuit has on file for this account OR you can create a new business profile.
Step 5 – Review OR Create your business profile.
If you select an existing business profile, the window below will have the last known inforamtion regarding that profile already entered and you will have an opportunity to review and/or update the information.
When you create a new profile, you will need to complete ALL required information.
Step 6 – Register QuickBooks
Unfortunately after I’d done all of this, I still had to call Intuit in order to obtain a “Validation Code” 🙁
Now THIS could be caused by the fact that I have registered a new version of QuickBooks each year since the 1990’s – beginning with Version 1 in DOS and am both a ProAdvisor and an IDN Developer.
