Mac - Quickbooks 2012 - Virtual Box - Windows - FMP - FMBooksConnector
Mac only printer wants to connect a new Filemaker database to Quickbooks Pro.
Intuit has not supplied the SDK for Quickbooks to developers, so FMBooksConnector works only with Win Quickbooks.
A short conversation with a Productive Computing tech support guy indicated that Quickbooks comes with a DataMGR that allows hosting the IFF file (Quickbooks database) and accessing it from multiple users.
He indicated that he thought that a Virtual Box (or Parallels or VMWare) install on the Mac with WinXP as a client and Quickbooks DataMGR and Filemaker with FMBooksConnector would work for tying FMP with QB and even remotely accessing the Quickbooks data.
Anyone have any thoughts or experience? (I realize a Windows PC would be the logical solution) It is one user accessing the QB data and double entry of the Client, Invoicing and such would be nice to eliminate.
