Quickbooks and Windows 8
Intuit is responding to some of the criticism about the User Interface change, let’s see if you think that these changes are enough.
Windows 8 Compatibility
This is supposed to be the first version of QuickBooks where Intuit officially supports Windows 8. Up until this time the most significant problem that I’ve run into with Windows 8 has been compatibility with PDF drivers on 64 bit systems. Does 2013 R4 fix this? Well, unfortunately, there are still problems on Windows 8. See the Intuit support site on Windows 8 for details. I have several test systems with Windows 8 and at this time 2013 R4 still has PDF problems on 64 bit systems. These kinds of compatibility problems are difficult to pin down and resolve sometimes. If you have been waiting to get Windows 8 until this has been fixed I think that you might want to wait just a little bit longer…
On the other hand, you may still be able to fix the problem by using the steps found in my article on Solving Problems with Windows 8 and QuickBooks 2013. I’ve had mixed success with this on different systems, unfortunately.
