Installing Peachtree on a single computer
Before you start the installation process, ask yourself the following questions:
1: Do you have a copy of your serial number?
During the installation process you will be asked to enter your unique Peachtree serial number.
You can find your serial number in the email from firstname.lastname@example.org under the
heading 'LICENSE INFORMATION'. We suggest you print this email so that you have access to the serial number during the
installation process. Additionally your serial number can be found in your Perdisco account directly under the link where
you downloaded the Peachtree software as shown below.
2. Have you closed all open applications?
So that Peachtree installs correctly, you need to exit all applications before you start the installation process.
You may wish to print this page so you have access to these instructions during the installation process.
3. Have you turned off all anti-virus software?
During the installation process, you will be asked to turn off all anti-virus software.
This is because some anti-virus software mistakenly classifies some of the files required to run Peachtree as a threat.
If you leave your anti-virus software on during the installation process, Peachtree may fail to install, may
not open or may not run correctly. For further assistance visit Peachtree's support page,
Firewall and Peachtree.
