I have Quicken 2007, MAC. Getting error message" "File is locked, transactions will not be saved" Never had this before.


This is due to a corrupt file. If you have a backup on .MAC or on your disc, open the older file. You may need to update transactions, etc.

Dear Sir/Madam,

To resolve this issue:
  1. From the Quicken File menu, choose Printer Setup, and then select the form that you are trying to print.
  2. Make sure that all selections and settings in the Printer Setup window are correct, especially the selection in the Printer drop-down list.
  3. If all information is correct, click Cancel and proceed to step 4. Otherwise, click OK after making the necessary corrections, and then try printing again.
  4. If the message persists, exit Quicken.
  5. Click the Microsoft® Windows® Start button, choose Settings, and then choose Printers.
  6. Right-click your printer and choose Properties.
  7. Click the Advanced tab, clear the Enable advanced printing features checkbox, and then click OK. Restart Quicken and try printing again.
  8. If the message persists, exit Quicken.
  9. Double-click Add Printer and proceed through the Add Printer wizard until you reach the window that asks for the printer manufacturer and model.
  10. Select the manufacturer for ex. HP, and then select the printer HP DeskJet 550C (or any other HP DeskJet 500 series printer). Follow the onscreen directions in the wizard to finish adding the printer.
  11. Restart Quicken. From the File menu, choose Printer Setup, and then select the form that you are trying to print.
  12. Select the printer you added in step 10 from the Printer drop-down list and then click OK.
Completely uninstall the old version and install the new version. Before install clear registry and temp files. Update the latest driver for printer.
Thanks
Good Luck

Quicken won't load


Your data file name is too long.  This is from the Quicken Support website:

Quicken Launcher has stopped working, or encountered an error and needs to close when backing up or closing data file
Updated: 02/05/2009 Answer ID: 7273

This error may occur when backing up or closing your data file, if the file name is excessively long or if the file path exceeds 250 characters.




To resolve this issue, make sure your data file is saved to this location (if not, move it there):


Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\Quicken
Vista: C:\Users\username\Documents\Quicken


If your file already resides in the above location, shorten the file name by renaming it to 8 characters or less. Avoid using in the file name.

I had the same problem with my program, I shortened the name and it launched.

Hi Rolyn,

This problem is a result of the fact that Quicken needs to compress and adjust the file on the fly as it write it. CD/DVD disks cannot be edited on the fly so the program sees them as an invalid choice. Save your backup to the harddrive, when it's done drag and drop the file to the CD or use your CD burning software to make a copy on CD.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Using the same quicken file on two networked computers


After you install Quicken on both computers it is no problem. If you put the Quicken file (the data is on the file that ends in .qdf, on a flash drive (you should be able to get one for $15 or $20) , you can carry the file in your pocket on a key chain. Then any time you want to use the file just double click on the file and Quicken will open on either computer. Make sure yo password protect the file and also back it up to one of the computers frequently in case you loose the flash drive.

Try reinstalling Quicken 2008 after uninstalling it first via 'Add/Remove Programs" in Control Panel. this should help.

Also check out THIS article on converting Quicken files to new versions and other info..It may prove to be quite useful..

As for the IBM Laptop not recognizing the flash drive, generally they come with a driver CD. Try installing that on the IBM and see. If you do not have the CD, you should be able to find the driver from the manufacturer's website, or do a google.

Should you have any further questions, please feel to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.

Backing up a Quicken file


This is probably due to an update. Quicken and quickbooks perform updates in the back ground on a frequent basis. The easiest way to take care of this problem would be to create a directory called backup on the flash drive and instruct quicken to backup to it.

Provided you're using windows XP, click on My Computer, select the icon for your flash drive, F: Right click and create a new folder and name it backup. In quicken when you go to backup, just change where it says F:\ to F:\backup

this should fix your problem. Please email back if you have any problems getting it to work.

"Disk not ready" message


Unless you are using linux, try typing F:\ not F:/. Microsoft uses a backslash for directories while unix/linux use /.

Do a search on your XP machine for autoexec and then right click in the bar that says "Name, Size etc. and make sure to select "type". You will see that the autoexec is of type "NT" and not type bat. then try again.
