Quickbooks Pro Ver5 for Windows


J

Jim Warner

My Quickbooks Pro Ver5 for Windows is working on my Windows XP machine.

I was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction as to where I can
download any/all updates for this old version of good software. I remember 1
major update shortly after it came out.

Thanks,
Jim

Intuit had 5 more after that in 1998. Version 5 was patched to R6. Good luck
in finding patches for that old piece of shit.

R7 was the last patch for venerable old QB 5.0 circa 1997/1998.

Is there one for QuickBooks 2005 Basic (v15.0D R7) just in case I ever have to reinstall mine?

As far as I know, the Basic and Simple Start versions use
the same updater. For QB2005 that would be:

Thanks! I had no idea it had an R11. I thought I was all up to date. I did a little Googleing and found another file.
Would you happen to know what the difference is between the one your mentioning and the one I found? Which one do you
think I should bookmark (or save) for future use? The one I found is only457Kb but the one you suggested is 61.5Mb

The first link in your list is for QuickBooks 5.0 (which came out
around 1997) -- back before they used years as the named version.

You need to get the second one for QB 2005. And I would
get it now and burn it to CD or something if you intend to
keep using QB 2005.

The question I'd ask is are Intuit updates cumulative?

Yes! I went ahead and ran the update and it seemed to install them all one at a time. It took 6 minutes to run it after
downloading. When I updated my QB Pro 8, it only took 1 or 2 minutes.

When I restarted QB-5 it lost the License but all I had to do was enter my phone number and zip code and it updated the
license. I had synchronized my license with Intuit before running the update. I never even new the Sync. feature was
there before today.

I would like to thank all the helpful people for their useful information.

Installed the update, and all is well.

That was nice of Ken to find those archived update pages.

John, you have QB 2005, right? The main QuickBooks site currently
lists updates going back to QB 2006, not "QB-6". QB 5.0 and
QB 6.0 preceded QB 99 and onward. As you mentioned in
a previous post, QB 2005 is file version 15.0.

To find a list of update changes, look for the link on the
download page under "Release Notes" or "What's New ... ".
The release notes page will have sections of notes. Each
note has the patch version at the end in parenthesis, such
as (R7).

QB Web site seems to only go back to QB-6

I don't think I've seen a regular update patch for
QB that wasn't cumulative.

Yes! I'm using QB 2005 not Ver 5 . Was 99 version 5? I've been using QB since ver 3 (on Window 3.1)

I could not find any "Release Notes" or "What's New ... " previous to 2006 but I see now the Qtools has a link to them
on the web page you gave us in your other message.

Thanks!

Hello all. I am hoping someone reads this... A friend of mine runs his own contracting business on the side and uses a VERY old windows 2000 machine with QuickBooks 5 on it. I received the Quickbook folders from the drive, but he can't find the installer disks for the software.

Does anyone know where I can download the original QuickBooks 5 from 1997???
Please respond directly to M_Hobbs13 AT yahoo.com
