I just updated - why am I being asked to update again?

There's a couple of reasons this can happen.

  • First, make sure you're opening the latest version of AccountRight that you've just installed. Look for the new AccountRight icon on your desktop and in the Windows Start menu. To avoid any confusion, uninstall any previous versions you no longer require.
  • Secondly, if you have more than one AccountRight company file under the same serial number, you'll need to update each company file to the latest AccountRight version. If you only update one company file, the Update now button will remain showing in each of your company files.
