Problems installing quickbooks through Parallels

    I have just installed parallels on my mac-book pro with no problems. Then I installed windows 7 through parallels, again with no problems. I do not have bootcamp installed and I am trying to install Payroll + pro 2014, through parallels, but it isn’t working. I have posted on quickbooks forums about this same issue and everyone seems to suggest that I should install bootcamp and install quickbooks in there.

    Is there a way to install quickbooks through parallels, or do I have to first install bootcamp and go through that way?

    Hi. Did you ever figure out how to install the QB pro 2014? I'm stuck.

    Hi Everyone,

    You can directly install a Windows program on your Mac using Parallels Desktop for Mac. This is possible with a CD or also via a download file.

    Please follow the steps outlined on the link below:
