Background

Installing the latest version of AccountEdge can be done from either an email that was sent to you as a link or your online AccountEdge account or by using the links below.

In order to insure that your computer can properly run the AccountEdge program please check our operating system requirements. If your computer does not meet the requirements please update the operating system before installing AccountEdge.

We have written instructions below - but this video shows how the installation process works for AccountEdge Pro US for Mac, the process is very similar for the Windows version as well:

Please Note: This video shows how you can download and install the trial version using the Chrome web browser, but again, the process is similar whether you are using one of the links below or the trial version email (or if you are using a different web browser).
