How to update   

If you’re using AccountRight Plus or Premier in Australia, you'll be prompted to update when you open your company file over the next few days, or you can download the update from . 


Installation tips 

  • When installation is complete, you won’t see a confirmation message. You can restart AccountRight immediately after installing the update. 
  • You won’t see a new desktop icon for the 2019.2.1 release. You can keep using the AccountRight 2019.2 icon to open AccountRight. 
  • Your company file won’t need upgrading, which means computers using 2019.2 or 2019.2.1 can open your file (but you should still install this update on all computers). 
  • If you already have Server Edition 2019.2, you will be notified that an update is available, however you can’t install the update directly from AccountRight’s notification window. You’ll need to: 
  • Uninstall your existing 2019.2 release from the server. 
  • Download the full 2019.2.1 Server Edition installer from 
  • Install 2019.2.1 on the server. 
  • If you already have PC Edition 2019.2 and you choose to download the full 2019.2.1 PC installer from the my.MYOB website, you will need to uninstall your existing 2019.2 software before you can install the new version. To avoid having to do this, download the “update” or “patch” installer instead (look for a .msp file), or update when prompted in your AccountRight software. 
  • If you have issues updating, see our troubleshooting guide.
