QuickBooks 2010 R17 Released

Written by Charlie Russell

Intuit has released the QuickBooks 2010 R17 update for the U.S. Windows version of QuickBooks. Since Intuit is retiring the 2010 product this May I have a feeling that this will be the last maintenance release that we’ll see for it.

This is available as a manual update from the Intuit support web site. Please note that at the time this is being posted I have not worked with this release extensively. I would expect that this will be available as an automatic update about a week later.

There are very few changes here:

  • The latest version of Intuit Sync Manager is included – this is the feature that synchronizes your desktop database with the “cloud” version of your database that is used by add-on applications that are found in the Intuit App Center (as well as a growing number of Intuit services).
  • There is a fix for a problem that can occur when you export your QuickBooks company file to QuickBooks Online and your QuickBooks company name has some special characters.
  • The help topic on registering QuickBooks has been corrected to match the information in this QuickBooks support KB article.
  • This one is confusing – the Intuit release notes talk about a “known issue”, and it isn’t clear if there is a FIX to the known issue, or if this is an issue known about this new release. It isn’t all that important, though- it has to do with opening the “Sample Product Based company” sample file, you would get a prompt for a new QuickBooks release being available. Since I rarely look at the sample files, I haven’t noticed this being a problem?

Not a lot of changes here, which is what you would expect from a release that is near the end of is life cycle.
