    H&R Block 2020 Premium for business


    i just let Microsoft run an update for Windows 10 and now the HR Block software won't open. I have the details saved to a word document.

    the version for personal returns is fine,only the business version.

    what's the fix? i saw an earlier post from someone about removing their 2019 version and reinstalling and that did not work for that person

    hope there's a better fix by Micosoft since their update seemed to have caused the issue

    :)

    Location of h&r Block files for premium and business 2018

    Just downloaded H&R Block Premium and Business 2018 software. In Business, cannot locate returns from 2017 in order to import 2017 data into 2018 1065 return. What is the location where my old returns should be located? Thanks

    Location of h&r Block files for premium and business 2018 on Windows 2007 to import into 2019 on Windows 2010- Continued

    Wolter Kluwer/H&R Block posted the following solution for accessing prior H&R tax return data file (for import into current year software) from 2007 system to 2010. After 4hrs including 1 1/2 with HR software support, this did the trick.

    Scenario: I had 2018 HR Block software installed on 2007 Windows computer. I installed 2019 on 2010 Windows computer. Despite having a .pdf of 2018 return and saving these files to the 2010 computer, I could not get 2019 HR software to recognize the files
    to import or upload.

    I contacted HR software support and they emailed another [blank] copy of 2018 software. Using last year's activation code, I installed 2018 onto the 2010 computer. Then, using Part #1 instructions below, I performed the backup return process on the 2007
    computer. I was able to save the file to a USB and transfer to the 2010 computer. Then, I restored return as directed in Part #2. I closed the 2018 HR Block version and opened the 2019 and proceeded to the import stage. Success! 2019 software recognized the
    2018 files.

    Note: According to HR software support, they were able to assist with duplicate 2018 copy of software since I had purchased directly from HR Block in 2018. I'm not sure if they can help if you purchased your copy through 3rd party like Office Depot/Staples,
    etc.

    Good luck and hope this saves someone a few hours of their time.. another thread in this community with similar discussion subject also helped a lot: Location of h&r Block files for premium and business 2018.
    Thanks to those participants!

    Moving H&R Block to a New Operating System

    This article describes the steps involved in moving HR Block data from your Windows 7 system to a new system.

    Environment
    Microsoft® Window® 7

    Procedure
    You’ll need to perform these steps for each year/version of H&R Block® Business that you have on your system.
    There are three basic parts for moving H&R Block® Business to your new system:

    *These instructions assume you have an external hard drive or USB drive with enough space to save all H&R Block® Business data to it. In the steps below this drive will be referred to as drive X. The steps also assume you have purchased a new system pre-loaded
    with Windows 10. If you are upgrading your existing Windows 7 machine to Windows 10 you will need to complete Part 1 on Windows 7, and then you will perform Parts 2 and 3 after the upgrade to 10 is complete.

    Part 1: Backup - Backup data on old system
    Note: Perform these steps on Windows 7 machine.

    Follow these steps to back up your H&R Block® Business data on the Windows 7 machine:

    1. Create a folder on drive X: called HRB 20YY Backup (change YY to the actual year of the software)
    2. Open your return.
    3. Click File > Backup Return.
    4. Navigate to the location that you created in Step #1.
    5. Click Save.
    6. Repeat steps 2-5 for all remaining returns.

    Parts 2 and 3: Installing H&R Block® Business and Restoring H&R Block® Business Data
    Note: Perform these steps on the new or upgraded computer.

    1. Plug in the external drive.
    2. Install the H&R Block® Business program.
    3. After installation completes, open the program and check for updates.
    4. Click File > Restore Return.
    5. In the Restore Return window, navigate to the folder you created during the Step #1 of Backing Up.
    6. Select your return(s).
    7. Click Open.
    8. Wait for restore process to complete.
