The program keeps locking up once I go in and try to do a few things. I thought it was isolated and I called for support which was resolved with a band aid by going into batch input and I did what i needed to do in a certain return issue but the real issue with the program wasn't. I'm now seeing it systemically. The hold times are super long. Anybody with this issue?
I have tuition for a foreign university that’s on the list of accepted institutions for the credit. There’s no US Tin? Will I be able to still efile it? Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. I was at odds with a client and his tax attorney about this and they had disagreed with my position which was as yours. I showed them the code section and IRS rulings and they finally agreed last week.

Thanks for the reply. I don't understand the response. 2015 is already filed, but if I was only filing 2015  now with tax due and then had a 2018 carry back, this would be a better result vs. already having filed it. I researched it since and I'm not seeing a difference in outcomes.

I have an individual loss carry back from 2018 back to a 2015 under the new law. 2015 has sizable tax interest and penalty due. Will the interest and penalty also be reduced besides the tax from the carryback? Thanks for any response.

I solved it. This was a transfer to new computer. I did 2018 over again and installed it. Did the pro-forma of all clients to 2019. Then installed 2019 and launched and all of the clients populated in all of the modules.

Thanks for the follow-up and instructions. Nothing found on that search. When I pro-forma from 2018 it asks if I want to overwrite 2019 client files. Somehow something is there. I see they start support on Sundays today. Probably be swamped.
How and where?
Unfortunately NG. I'm looking in Idata/detail and it's blank also, no files at all. 
Thanks but it didn’t work. The update client database is grayed out. The data path is the same.  When I pro-forma again it asks to overwrite as they’re there. I’m lost and can’t do any work now. 
Ran Pro-Forma all returns 2018-2019 and saw no errors but none of the clients are in 2019 in any of the programs. 
Thanks. I wouldn’t have to go to the Lacerte web site and start installing the programs this method would do it.

Good Afternoon: I wanted to double check that this will work to transfer the lacerte files from win 7 machine to new Win 10 machine. Transferring Lacerte Files From One Computer to Another (Standalone Install) Part 1 - Copy Lacerte Directory Copy the entire   C:\Lacerte   folder on the root of the local drive from the source computer to the same root of the   C:   drive on the target computer.  Copying the entire C:\Lacerte folder includes the data, settings, and most the program files. This may be done by using a crossover cable or an external USB drive.  Please consult your system administrator for further recommendations. Part 2 - Install the Program Tax Years 2007-Current: Click the   Start   menu then   Computer. Windows 10 computers: open   File Explorer   from the taskbar and select   This PC   in the left pane. Open the   Local Disk (C:) Open the   Lacerte   folder Then open the ??Tax (?? = two digit tax year), example -16Tax Then open the   Setup??   folder. (??   = two digit tax year) Double-click the   TaxSetup.exe   file to initiate the installation. Follow the screen prompts to complete the installation. After the installation is complete, launch the program from the new icon on the Desktop.
I'm not seeing many yet that have 16GB Ram and Win 10 Pro. I'm close now with Costco in store on the spot. Thanks all. 
Why 2 days? Isn't the end of Win 7 support 1/20/20?

I don’t feel it’s a strong enough machine and I’ve heard horror stories about it. I’m also not sure where the Win 7 disk and I have some programs that won’t run after for sure. I’ve heard about virtualizing Win 7 in a Win 10 machine and importing the old drive.

Thanks. I might not be able to get a new machine up and running that fast and re-install all the programs and settings and clients for the last 3-4 years before I will want to prepare some 2019 returns. Thanks for any help and assurance. I've only been using Lacerte since 1987. 🙂  
Yes a question, can I install and run Lacerte 2019 on a Windows 7 Professional machine. Consider me on a lower technical level here. 
I just called support and they said that Lacerte won't support system problems with Windows 7 issues but that the 2019 software will run on it and can be installed.
