Be Careful Before You Upgrade to Windows 10
Question: I have QuickBooks Premier 2015. I want to upgrade to Windows 10. Will that work?
Answer: I’m so glad you asked before upgrading. Technology is both a blessing and a curse, and making changes in one program can impact older programs negatively and cause them to stop working.
That would be the case in this instance. Unfortunately, Windows 10 is only compatible with QuickBooks Premier 2016 or later.
You might want to upgrade to the most recent year of Premier, and then you can upgrade to Windows 10.
