QuickBooks 2022 & Enterprise 22.0

QuickBooks converted from a 32-bit to a 64-bit application

There are only a few new features in QuickBooks 2022/Enterprise 22.0 (“QuickBooks 2022”), which will not be used by most users.  See Intuit’s what’s new and what got dropped.

However, QuickBooks 2022 does include a huge change, the conversion from a 32-bit application to a 64-bit application. In theory this means QuickBooks can make better use of modern 64-bit processors for better performance. Find our more.

What isn’t commonly discussed is that it is difficult for 32-bit and 64-bit applications to talk to each other. Windows makes it possible, but there are various hurdles and limitations involved. It’s not chance that all of the features dropped from QuickBooks 2022 are external “add-on” applications – which are 32-bit. It appears that Intuit dropped them rather then re-write them.

The change to 64-bit means that external applications – like ours – have to be updated in order to to continue communicate with QuickBooks.

Status:

  • We’ve re-written the code used to communicate with QuickBooks in most of our products.
