Hosted and multi-user QBD environments

Codat's QuickBooks Desktop connector is designed to work in single-user environments only, where one Windows user logs on to the computer they use to access QuickBooks Desktop. The connector is not designed or supported for use in multi-user or hosted environments.


QuickBooks Desktop for Mac

Codat does not currently support Intuit QuickBooks for Mac OS. Only the QuickBooks Desktop for Windows versions listed above are supported.

Supported operating systems

The Codat QuickBooks Connector is supported for QuickBooks running on Windows 10 or Windows 11 with the latest service pack(s) installed.

Users have successfully run the connector on older versions of Windows; however, we do not officially support this due to Microsoft's withdrawal of support for these operating systems.

The connector will not run on Mac OS.
