Is Quicken99 compatible with Windows 7 and/or XP?

The best way to install older versions of Quicken on Vista or Windows 7 is to run the setup program through the Windows Compatibility feature:

In Control Panel search for 'compatibility' that will bring up an item 'Run program made for previous versions of Windows'.

Select this and step through the process which will eventually show a list of all programs loaded on the system.

Select the first option 'Not listed'. This will then prompt you for a location of the program.
Click 'Browse' and select the location of the Quicken install program (either CD or disk).

Once found, select the Quicken install program and continue. This will the suggest that the installer run in XP mode. Click 'Next' to run the installer.

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.

I bought Quicken 99 (basic) when it came out. I installed and re-installed it succesfully up to Windows XP until this year. This past month the icon dissapeared from my desktop and this past week, when I...

You could search the WWW for that file ... I think your best course of action is to get a good back up - both on a hard drive and on a cd or dvd of your quicken file. Save your file under a second name also (see below). Get 2010 version, which they started advertising to Quicken users about 2 weeks ago for $78.00. Load the software then tell Quicken to load your file.

BE ADVISED - the copy of your file on your hard drive will be over written when it converts to the new Quicken. That is the reason you save as another name. The new copy will not run on your Quicken 99 - however, you still have 99, right? and you have the copy under another name to run on that, right?

So you should be in good shape either way.

I think your real 15 year record is that you used it for so long!

Tell me, did I just answer another Quicken question for you here?

Quicken 2009 won't load any more. using windows vista.

Ok, this basically means the ini file is corrupted normally. What you'll have to do is either reinstall quicken 2009 or try a repair on it. You can also manually go to c:\Program Files\Quicken\qw.exe and see if the shortcut is bad that you have been using. If you don't have the disk, go to start, settings control panel, add remove programs or programs and features. Locate the program. Right click on it, click change. Then check the feature that gives you the option to repair the software. BACKUP quicken files if they aren't on a disk.

Hi Bruce,

Time for a new Quicken, my friend. and maybe a newer computer. I remember something about Quicking having trouble migrating to 32 bit computers.

Find a newer quicken on e-bay or at your computer store that also handles used software. Quicken sells the new version now at their site for $78.00

Make sure you have a good back up before youj start.

I hope this helps
