I need to install quickbooks 7.4 to a new computer.  In the box I have a disk 1 and a disk 4, and also have previously downloaded a file "QBUpdate74.exe".  The client simply needs the second machine as a read only backup machine.  The second machine will be at a different geographic location and never connected to a network.  We will use a portable hard drive to copy / sync the data file.

To install Quickbooks 7, can anyone please confirm:
- I can use disk 1 (only) to install QB7, then
- use the download upgrade file to upgrade to 7.4
- and of course use my serial number to unlock the package

Comments and suggestions welcome.

    With QB 7.4 being old technology you will most probably find it will not install into a Windows 10 environment.

    You should look at upgrading to Reckon Account 2016 though the data upgrading needs to be done n several stages

    Thanks.  Looking to install under MS Windows 7 64 bit, same as other machine which has worked for several years.  Trying to check whether the correct process is 1) install QB 7 from disc 1 - and is disc 1 sufficient for installing 7, then 2) can run the QB 7.4 upgrade file
