Overall these years, Virtualization has evolved at a more tremendous pace. If you are wondering what this term means. It allows the creation of a computer within your primary computer. Still, there is a lot of time for technology to advance in certain domains, such as QuickBooks on Virtual Machine. In general, Intuit, at this point, isn’t supporting QB on Virtual machines such as VMs like VMware, VirtualBox, Xen, or Microsoft Virtual Server. Apart from that, if you take into account one of the biggest concerns, you still don’t have the option of local or online backup.

Therefore, it means that you carry the entire exporting process manually or use a third-party application. There are several reasons behind the success of running QuickBooks on a Virtual machine that we have discussed later in this post. Before that, you must know the steps to run QuickBooks on a Virtual Machine.

If you have ever installed Windows on the computer, this process wouldn’t be tedious for you because the steps required to install & run QuickBooks on Virtual Machine are similar. Below we have listed the steps that you need to follow:

  • Firstly, you have to install QuickBooks on the host operating system where it has already been running.
  • Then, create an image of the system and set it as a virtual machine.
