QuickBooks Desktop 2022: What you need to know

For 2022, QuickBooks® Desktop has modernized its platform to provide enhanced computing power (64-bit compatibility) that maximizes QuickBooks’ performance and stability through improved use of the 64-bit processors found on most computers.

  • Customers get peace of mind by using a QuickBooks that meets modern operating system standards.
  • Customers maintain seamless third-party integrations by using developer preferred infrastructure.

QuickBooks Desktop 2022 will not be compatible with 32-bit operating systems

We are recommending that customers on 32-bit operating systems upgrade to 64-bit compatible hardware and software to be able to install QuickBooks Desktop 2022.

Will my app still work with QuickBooks Desktop 2022?

32-bit apps will continue to work with QuickBooks Desktop 2022.

  • SDK and all existing 32-bit apps will continue to work with the latest QuickBooks 2022 versions (Plus and Enterprise).
  • QuickBooks support on 32-bit app compatibility will continue in 2019, 2020, and 2021 versions.

Can I take advantage of the new 64-bit compatibility?

The developer community will have the ability to extend the power of 64-bit in their apps for the QuickBooks Desktop users by using the QuickBooks Desktop 64-bit application installer until the SDK installer is available in the near future.
