QuickBooks Enterprise 13.0 and other language settings- Caution!

Question on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!


For many years, we have been able to use QuickBooks and QuickBooks Enterprise on a Windows computer, and have the keyboard set to another language.


Not so with QuickBooks 2013 and Enterprise 13.0.

The new interface is set to operate in US English ONLY!

If you add another keyboard setting in Windows, such as Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong), and open QuickBooks Enterprise 13.0, it will override the Windows Keyboard setting and will reset it to English US.

This can be a major issue if you are using other software that accepts the alternate language settings. You could end up with Invalid data, or even damage.

I do not know if this will be changed in a later update. We will keep you posted.
