    Windows 9??


    I thought I only had Windows 8, but looks like 9 was downloaded without me knowing it. If so, that may be the problem that my Quickbooks Pro 2009 will not come up now. Does anyone know if this could be the case? And also, should I not have been asked whether I wanted 9 ? Thanks

    Sweet! Did they bring back the start menu in Windows 9?

    As far as I know, Windows 9 does not exist. It may never exist, if the rumors are true about Microsoft abandoning their 3 year OS replacement cycle.

    I have very little idea about what you did. For example: some people use "download" as a synonym for "install".

    I hope that you haven't got some hacked installer off the torrents.

    Yes the start menu is there. I can't tell any difference except that my Quickbooks program won't come up

    Oh no!! That is what might have happened. I didn't know I had 9 until I started checking for problems about my quickbooks.... Can I call someone at Microsoft to find out??

    Maybe you should contact Manti T'eo.

    I called MicroSoft and it seems it is a legitimate update. My question now is : Is my version of Quickbooks compatible with Windows 9
    Next question is: If it is not, now do I uninstall it when my latest updates only have a number and not a description ( Only "Update for Microsoft Windows (then a number here). At least it doesn't seem to be a hacker

    No offence sparkync,

    but there is NO Windows 9!!! Don't think you get the message properly. So, you're question isn't really possible, for Windows 9 DOES NOT EXISTS!!

    You can always try a reinstallation of Windows and see if your program Quickbooks works.

    Good luck.
