When installing or updating AccountRight, most people just need the PC editionit’s the simplest installation, requires little configuration and is easy to maintain.

The AccountRight PC Edition will only be installed for the user who is currently logged into Windows. If other users log in to this computer using their own Windows account name, they’ll need to install AccountRight as well.

Are you installing on a server? If AccountRight company files are stored on this computer, and you want to share them with others on your office network, install the Server edition on the server and the PC edition on the client PCs. See Set up a network.

When you've decided which installation you need, learn how to install AccountRight.
