Intuit has released the QuickBooks 2012 R16 update for the U.S. version of QuickBooks. This is available as a manual update from the Intuit support web site. I’m guessing that the automatic update won’t occur until a bit later, although I’m not sure about that.
This may be one of the last updates to QuickBooks 2012 that we’ll see, since Intuit will “retire” QuickBooks 2012 later this year.
Not a lot has changed in this release. It corrects two problems that you might run into, which I’ve never had come up in my test systems. This fixes the issues that caused these two different error messages to appear:
- “Verify Custom Template list. Duplicate name encountered”
- “Verify Customer Message list. Duplicate name encountered”
I would say that it is worth doing the update, since the changes at this point are fairly localized. I’ve installed the update, I haven’t run into any problems, but I’ll note that I have not used the program as extensively as I would like to.
