There is a work around to getting Windows XP programs to work under Windows Vista - Virtual PC 2007.

Virtual PC 2007 is a free download from Microsoft and it allows you to install any operating system and run it in a "window" on your Vista desktop.

Download Virtual PC 2007, create a Windows XP virtual machine, install Microsoft Money and transfer in your data. You can install Quicken as well.

The virtual machine will use your PC's actual connections (network, serial and printer but not USB) to connect to devices and the Internet.

Again - this is a work around that is proven to work. One side benefit - you can copy the virtual machine to an external hard drive / USB memory stick and run it on any comptuer that has Virtual PC 2007 installed on it.

Hope this helps

How do I move a copy of Quicken from my desktop to my laptop.


Hi.
When you downloaded quicken, it should by default save to a sub folder named "Download" Depending on your PC's operating system, the download folder is normally found in the "My Documents folder" Click on the Start buttom (Windows) in the bottom left corner of the taskbar. Inside the Download folder should be a file with the name Quicken.exe. Copy the Quicken.exe file to a memory stick or flash drive, then stick in into the usb port of the other PC. Click on the Quicken.exe file and it will run the installation of Quicken on the second PC. Install Quicken the same way on the 3rd PC.
Good luck!!

Running windows vista service pack 2 but quicken 2014 won't open


One solution would be to run it pretending your Vista is XP. I have seen it done but as I have no Vista machine, I cannot tell you the steps. Search for running Vista in XP mode - once you have managed that, try installing the software.
The second solution would be to open a virtual machine on Vista and running that as an XP machine. Again, I have seen it done.

Try the links I have added below.

The problem I had was with Quickbooks, not Quicken, but the principle is the same and worth a try. Good luck.

Why can't I automatically download my transactions with Quicken 2002 when my OS is Vista


Quicken 2002 quit allowing downloads several years ago. If that is what you want, you need to buy a newer version.

I cannot get quicken 2002 basic to install on my new computer with windows vista.


That's because Quicken 2002 will NOT run on Vista. Quicken 2005 & 2006 will run on Vista, but will have issues and script errors. Intuit will only ensure Quicken 2007 and newer will work on Vista.

Quicken 2009 premier Installation


a bit fuzzy here in your statements
you have win xp installed and the quicken program runs there perfectly
is that correct ?
now on another pc you have win vista and quicken is not running there
is that correct?
or do you have both win xp and vista operating systems on the one laptop and are trying to get quicken to work on both on the one laptop
maybe the problem is that quicken version you have works well win win xp as it is compatible with that OS but is not compatible with win vista in which case you need to go to the quicken properties tab , click on compatibility tab and tick the box and high light window vista and apply the change or get a download upgrade vesion from quicken web site

Quicken 2004 Installing on Windows Vista


visit www.quicken.com
Update Quicken 2005 manually
Visit Quicken Help & Support, select 2005 for Windows, and enter 3810 in the search field. Open the How Do I Manually Update Quicken 2005 For Windows To The Latest Release? link. This page has all of the patches for Quicken 2005. However, you only need to download the patch that has the highest R number. The latest patch carries all of the data from the earlier patches. In this case, you will want to download patch QW05R5PATCH.exe.

Click the file’s link. If you have Windows XP, a File Download – Security Warning may appear. Click the Save button. In the Save As window, choose a location to which you’d like to save the file and then click Save. When the download completes, simply double-click the file to start the patch installation.

(NOTE: This method involves downloading and installing a single patch file. If you don’t have an Internet connection but have a friend who does, you can download the file to his PC and then burn it to a CD [assuming your friend’s PC has a CD-RW]. Use the CD to transfer the file to your computer.)
