This is possible if you update your QuickBooks 2011 to a later version and back up data and then store it in a pen drive. You can restore data from it to your new Windows 10 machine with a 2018 QuickBooks version.

Approach Two - When Windows Firewall Block QuickBooks

This has been tried out by some with a measure of success. Intuit may not update versions older than 2014 & since QuickBooks is web-enabled, the program will shut down should you be connected to the web and to intuit site. The solution is to disconnect from internet before launching QuickBooks and it should run fine. You can also try to define a new rule in firewall to block connection with intuit site.

Approach Three - When Windows 10 Installations for .NET 3.5 is not Activated

  • Run control panel and go to programs and features and then view installed updates and you should see a box open up with a list in which you can see Microsoft .NET framework 3.5 or later version with a checkbox against it. Enable it.
  • Close windows
  • Relaunch windows.
  • QuickBooks should work.
