QODBC License Details FAQ:

Question:

Would you be kind enough to give me any information that you have that would enable me to get the application to run and all of the machines in the network. I have the server edition and I have tried using the DCOM setup procedure without success. Can you indicate to me how to set up the DCOM.

 

Answer:

I kindly suggest you refer below article for how to setup DCOM server:
How to setup QODBC DCOM Server

I would like to suggest you to use QRemote instead of DCOM server. Please refer below mentioned articles for QRemote configuration.
Accessing QuickBooks Data Remotely using QODBC & QRemote

I guess you might be trying to configure QODBC -DCom so that other machines can connect to your server machine having QODBC + QuickBooks.
I would like to share that QODBC is not the client-server application. To access data from the remote machine you need to use QRemote. Install QODBC on the client machine and using QRemote client connect to your server which runs QRemote Server.
QODBC Server edition license is required when you have any service based application like SQL Server, WebServer, Windows Service connecting to QODBC and not when remote machine connecting to the machine.

 

Question:

I purchased the server edition with the expectation that it could be used in a multiuser environment. Currently, my client has 8 workstations that are linked to a server in the network. I wanted to find out if the dcom feature could be used and you recommended to use Qremote. However, the literature that he recommend that I should use, suggested that QODBC should be loaded on each workstation. My query is can't the server edition work or does I have to purchase a driver for each workstation. Please explain.

 

Answer:

The server version of QODBC is not a driver that you would install on a server and multiple workstations would have access to it. The server version of QODBC is for synchronizing SQL Server with QuickBooks data or for a web or intranet application, it is multi-threaded and can run as a service. QODBC is a client-side driver that would normally reside on the workstations.

 

Question:

I have a developer who is doing most of the development work on his desktop computer. I have to test and verify his work on my personal desktop computer. I have a separate desktop machine where I actually run the software for my small business. Everything for the business is done on that 1 machine. It looks like I would actually need to purchase 2 licenses at 149 each since the license is per user, even though I need to run the software on 2 machines? could you please confirm?

 

Answer:

If you want to work with live data on both machines then you need to purchase 2 licenses. You can continue your work with 1 licenses If your developer works with sample business file. For working with sample file no need of licensing. Your developer can work with sample file without licenses and You can test his work on your machine with licenses.

Hi jsolorzano,

I would like to inform you that when QODBC is installed on a new machine it starts with 30-day evaluation (All features are active). But QODBC evaluation version will turn to Read Only edition for QuickBooks enterprise edition – automatically after 30 days (If QuickBooks Enterprise Edition v10 or above is installed).

You can use QODBC as a read-write version for 30 days only as an evaluation version. But QODBC evaluation version will turn to Read Only edition for QuickBooks enterprise edition – automatically after 30 days. If you want write functionality you need to purchase QODBC license.

QODBC Read-only edition for QuickBooks Enterprise does not include QRemote License. So after 30 days, you may not be able to use QRemote.

After 30 days if you try to connect and using QuickBooks Other then Enterprise edition ( ie. Pro/Premier ) you will notice "Evaluation Expired" message.
After 30 days if you try to connect and using QRemote Other then QODBC Licensed you will notice "Unable to open license file" message.

If you want to use QODBC with other QuickBooks Edition (i.e. Pro/Premier), then you need to purchase QODBC license.

You can get in touch with our sales team for purchase license:
