I'm setting up QuickBooks 2004 Basic for a new QuickBooks user, and this user bought QuickBooks 2004 Basic when it was current, and is just now getting around to setting it up and attempting to use it. I know that QuickBooks 2007 Basic can be bought fairly cheaply, but I'd still rather use the copy of QuickBooks 2004 Basic that they bought back in 2003 or 2004 if at all possible, especially since the possibility exists that they may not like it and decide to use something else, may never learn how to use it, etc.
I know (actually I assume) that the user account I have set up in Vista needs to have full administrator privileges.
Do I need to tell Vista to run the QuickBooks EXE in Windows XP compatibility mode?
Is there anything else I need to do to get QB to run properly?
Am I wasting my time and their time as well, and should I insist they upgrade to a current version of QB? Like I said, I'd much prefer to use what I have, especially if there is a known workaround that I can easily implement prior to turning it over to my client.
