Attention Windows XP Users:
In line with Microsoft's recent decision to discontinue support of Windows XP, Intuit ProTax software will also stop supporting this operating system upon the release of our TY14 tax program, which means you will not be able to install it in a Windows XP environment. You will want to upgrade your operating system to Windows 7 or higher in order to continue running your Intuit ProTax software.
We cannot guarantee that ProSeries products/solutions will function properly on operating systems, software, and hardware we do not support. ProSeries Technical Support will not be able to help customers solve problems on unsupported environments in Tax Year 2014 and beyond.
NAS (network access storage) is not recommended due to the lack of Microsoft windows based Operating System.
While some Customers run ProSeries in a Windows emulation environment on a Mac, this does not meet the minimum or recommended systems requirements outlined below and cannot be supported.
Stand-Alone (Professional Edition, Basic Edition, Fixed Asset Manager)
We strongly suggest referring to the "Recommended" column of system requirements if you have more than 1,000 client files or have installed all 1040 products and find that PS is not launching fast enough.
