You can It has only been out for a few weeks, but it looks like the QuickBooks 2011 R8 update has problems. As it stands now, Intuit has removed this from automatic update status. If you haven’t updated to R8, DO NOT. If you HAVE updated, and aren’t seeing problems, cross your fingers. I’ll note that I’m using R8 without any difficulties at all, but then I don’t use all of the features that might have been affected.
See my article in QuickBooks and Beyond for details.
Update: The 2011 R9 update has been released and it fixes the problems in R8. See this article: http://www.sleeter.com/blog/2011/11/quickbooks-2011-r9-released/
