Peer to Peer networking application prob

By h_greene ·
I have peer to peer network using Win98SE. Everything works fine except one particular application - Quickbooks. When the PC housing the app (and sharing with others) is using the application (even if the app is simply open and not currently being used, another PC cannot access the app, until first user quits the app. Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot?

Is this normal? I thought two users would be able to access the same appl simultaneously. Am I wrong?

I think more than one user should be able to work within Quickbooks, but like other accounting software only one machine can access the same acount at one time.

Did you put Quick Books in Multi User Mode and are you using a seperate Licence on each machine ?

I believe you must have QuickBooks 99 or newer to run Multi-User. Look on Intuit's website (http://www.intuit.com/).
