For example, if you want to access the file from your home computer as well as the office computer, you need to install AccountRight on both machinescomputers.

You can download AccountRight here. For more information on installation, see , then double-click the downloaded file to install. Need more details? See Install AccountRight.

Using an Apple Mac? AccountRight is designed for use on the Windows operating system. If you want to install AccountRight on an Apple Mac, you'll need to install Windows on your Mac first. You can do this using Boot Camp (a Mac utility that allows you to install other operating systems) or virtual software such as Parallels or WMware. Note that running AccountRight on virtual software may affect performance and speed. And while many users report a good experience, it's not tested or supported by MYOB.
