Installation Steps for Windows 8 

After you have downloaded QODBC Installer, navigate to the "Downloads" Folder or the location where you have saved QODBC Installer. Run the installer as administrator by Right-clicking on the installer and selecting "Run As Administrator." Don't forget to read the "Readme" file during installation for the latest information on QODBC setup, new features, and other driver information.




Please close all the applications. It is better to reboot the machine before starting the installation.  During the installation, You will be asked to select the Region of QuickBooks you use. This should match the version of the driver you purchased. Next, select the destination directory to install the QODBC support files. Click "OK" to continue.





The FLEXquarters QODBC Driver for QuickBooks® has been successfully installed on your computer. You can begin to use it immediately because it will run as a free 30-day evaluation edition, serving as all editions of QODBC, depending on how it is configured.

To install a full purchase QODBC registration code to an evaluation copy from a previous download, see the Icons that have been added to your Home Screen on your Windows 8. i.e., "Purchase QODBC Pro Now." 



The first step in configuring the driver is to click on the QODBC Setup Screen icon/tile, and the setup screen (as shown on the next page) will become available.

When I try to install the QBES read-only version, the icon doesn't show up in the start page and I can't seem to configure it to work when I use the exe from the file location of the setup portion of the driver. It say's "Connection Successful" but then when I try to use it in a program, it isn't available and/or doesn't work.
