How Many Computers Can you Install One License of QuickBooks POS On

Hi Ruth, my QuickBooks POS client’s remote store’s QuickBooks POS server computer is down. Not sure if it’s hardware or O/S problem but they can’t get to Windows.

We have nightly a backups and the last one was last night before the store exchange to HQ.

I suggested that the client to buy a new computer and plug it in and I’d re-install QuickBooks POS remotely. Is there any issue with getting the remote store license to take right away on the re-install on the new computer so that I can do the store exchange w/HQ and get back up and running?

The original remote store installation I remotely installed so I know I can do that, my question is whether there are licensing issues that will prevent me from getting things back and functional for them ASAP.


You can install the license on as many computers as you like. You just can’t run QuickBooks POS on more than one computer at the same time unless you have additional users.
