Frequently Asked Questions / Troubleshooting
I purchased software two hours ago, but haven’t received anything via email. Where is my download?
Per the listing for each downloadable software product we sell, it details the time it takes in which you will receive an email with your license number and download instructions. Some downloadable software is immediately available and some software takes 1-2 business days to process.
How do I download my software I purchased from you?
If the product you purchased has an immediate download option, a download link and license key will be available in both your order confirmation email and within your Fourlane account. To download via your Fourlane account, log in first, then click on the Downloads link on your account dashboard.
Do you sell QuickBooks in a boxed CD format?
Intuit stopped selling boxed CD’s a few years ago, as the trend in the software industry is moving to purely a digital delivery method. Intuit still provides a “re-install” CD. Please keep in mind, a “re-install” CD is simply a generic disc with a QuickBooks installer (.exe) file on it and does not contain any license information. Also, the download version will many times be the latest version of the software compared to what’s on the CD as there are often updates / patches to the software since the release of the CD.
My QuickBooks software is asking for a validation code. Where do I get one of those?
A validation code for your QuickBooks software can be obtained by logging into your Intuit Online Account or by contacting the appropriate Intuit support department below:
