Our client has upgraded their licence for 2018, since they have Reckon Accounts 2017 Release R2P. Whats the procedure to upgrade the software to Reckon Accounts 2018 ?

Did you read the documentation? Try opening your file in the new version.

I upgraded 2 weeks ago and all has worked perfectly.
Downloaded upgrade. Must use the new key that comes with the download
when loaded, double clicked to install
When opened the qbw file I needed to upgrade the file to the new version.
After that just worked.
I also unloaded the old version and the db server as I no longer need them.
If you need to upload BAS then also need the new version of Government Connect.

Mike to be fair its not THAT simple. You do need to turn on the built in administrator. You also need to install the software as Administrator. You also need to accept the default directory. You also need to give full permissions to the installation directory. Theres more but that will do for a start
