Peachtree 2012 Student Data files Installation Instructions

Before you begin the installation process, check with your instructor to see if Peachtree Complete Accounting and/or the company files have already been loaded in a designated location for you. If you do need to install Peachtree on your workstation or you are using this book at home, you must register your student version with Sage Peachtree Software by visiting http://na.sage.com/us/about-us/education.

Once registered, simply place the Student Resources DVD in your disc drive, and the Peachtree installation program will start automatically and guide you through installing the software.

The version of Peachtree available on the Student Resources DVD is known as the Student version; the version that is preinstalled at some institutions is known as the Education version. The institutional Education version and disc-delivered Student version are identical and compatible. The Student version and Education version of Peachtree Complete Accounting has the same features and functions—except for the Fixed Assets Module (needed for the Appendix)—included in the commercial version, but is not upgradeable.
