I am installing Quickbooks 7 Enterprise Solutions onto a Windows 7 machine for one of our employees, as we are upgrading his computer. As I went through the Quickbooks install, near the end, I'm asked to choose an "edition": General Business, Contractor, Manufacturing, Nonprofit, Professional Services, and Retail.
The problem is, I have no idea which edition he's running, and he probably doesn't either, as it's been (probably) several years since Quickbooks was installed on his old computer.
Is there any way that I can find out, by looking in the old computer's registry or Quickbooks Help, which version he has been running?
I would just "pick one" except for the fact that this is a multi-user setup, and others are also using Quickbooks to access the same files. The installation makes it very clear that the same "edition" must be used between all computers accessing the data.
If I did just "pick one", and it turned out to be wrong, would it screw up the data, or is there some sort of safety net built in that wouldn't even allow us to open the data files in the wrong edition?
