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!!

Quicken will not let me into my files without a password and I have never had a password.


There are two types of passwords used in Quicken: a password for opening a data file (also known as 'file password') and a transaction password.
If both passwords are set, you will have to find the password for opening the file first; then you can recover the transaction password. In other words you cannot recover the transaction password if the file password is set.

It is possible to break the transaction password instantly. Fake Password will be constructed.

Unless your document was created in an old Quicken (prior 2001), the password for opening is much, much harder to break.

The universal recovery methods (Brute Force Attack, Dictionary Search and Smart Force Attack) must be used for that. Unfortunately, even a single password check takes a lot of computations, so the search speed will be very slow (not more than 1000 passwords per second).

This means that the recovery of even a relatively short password will take A LOT of time. Use our Password Calculator to estimate the recovery time.

As of today, all our competitors offer a demo version that recovers short passwords. However, the recovery of longer passwords takes unacceptable amount of time. This means, one may try a demo version, find out that it works properly (on short passwords!), then buy the program's full version and find out that it is useless. Are you ready to spend four months waiting until your 7-character password is recovered?

In other words, this means that you can easily waste your time and money and get absolutely nothing in return!

LastBit Corp. proudly presents Guaranteed Recovery Service for Quicken. We will spend 24 hours trying to break a password to your Quicken document.
Since we will use the power of multiple computers, this will be equal to spending 6+ months of computations on a single computer. This does NOT guarantee the success; however, it significantly improves your chances. Most important - we will not charge you even a single penny if we find that we cannot recover your password.

Guaranteed Recovery service for one Quicken document is included into the program. If you need to recover more Quicken documents you need to purchase additional licenses of Quicken Password.
In order to use the Guaranteed Recovery Service, download and install the demo version. Run the program and select the password-protected Quicken file. You will be asked to select the recovery method. Choose "Fast Recovery Service" and then click OK. Quicken Password will send the recovery request to us. We will check if we can recover the password and send you the confirmation. Then you can buy the program and get the password. If we cannot recover the password, you have no oblagtion to buy the software.

Important note. This is not a cracking or hacking site. We do not offer software "cracks", cracking programs or other hacking tools. Instead, we offer password recovery software and password recovery services. Password recovery software is also known as "password crackers" (or "password breakers"). Note that "password crackers" are not "software crackers". Software crackers are produced by hackers and are used to run illegal software copies. Password crackers are used to "crack" lost or forgotten passwords. Have you ever forgotten your password? We could help you...

Sometimes people ask us why Demo versions of our software are so limited. Here is the answer. Password recovery tools are very special software. Unlike regular software, a typical password recovery tool may be needed only to restore that much needed document, and nothing more. You use it only once, as opposed to system-checking, workspace-improving or security software. Suppose we release a regular time-limited fully-functional trial version. In this case we will inevitably lose a lot of our customers ("one-time users"). Developing good password recovery software takes a lot of efforts from our professionals, so we simply wouldn't be able to stay in business if we gave our software away for free. We have to offer you software with limited capabilities so you can have a chance to evaluate them, and we have a chance to get paid for the full version and keep bringing you better products in the future. Your understanding is much appreciated; if you choose our products, you won't be disappointed by their performance and support!

Looking for word document I did not save


The power just went out while you working on an important document you forgot to save.

Do not panic because Microsoft Word comes equipped with a feature that automatically will recover files you did not save.


Typically, this feature works by default.

The program allows you to change how often Word saves your documents and you can adjust the location where Microsoft Word saves these "Auto Recover" files.


Open up Microsoft Word.

Do not click on a file to open the program.

Instead, open the program by double-clicking on the program's icon.


Allow the program to load for a couple of minutes before clicking on anything.


Look on the left side of the screen.

If Microsoft Word recovered the file, a "Document Recovery" task pane will load.


Find the file's date.

Double-click on the file in the "Document Recovery" pane.


This will open the file in Microsoft Word.


Click on the "File Menu" and select "Save As."


Save the document as a ".doc" file type, and type a name for your document in the "File Name" box.


or


Open Microsoft Word to determine if the program auto-recovered your document.

If your software is set to auto-save your document every couple of minutes, when the program is restarted, any document that was not saved prior to closing, may appear in the auto-recover window on the left side of the screen.


Click on your document, and the last-saved file will open.

However, anything you typed after the last auto-save is gone, but at least you haven't lost the entire document.


Search the auto-recover files manually if the auto-recover pane did not appear when you opened MS Word.


Click the Start menu at the bottom of your computer screen, and click "Search." Some operating systems have the search option as a part of the Start menu.


Search for "*.asd" to search for any recovered files.


If you find the file, open Word, and click "Open" in the menu.

Search through all files, and locate the file that ended in .asd. Click "Open" to view your file.


If you are using Word 2002 or 2003, you need to restart your computer after clicking "Open." Re-open Word after your computer re-boots to view the recovered file.


Check your backup files.

If you have the "Always create backup copy" option selected in Word, you may be able to find a backup copy of your document.


Find the location where you last saved the document.

Check for the extension .wbk.


If there aren't any, search your whole computer for files with that extension.

Open your file by clicking "Open" in Word, and search all files for the .wbk extension.

Once you locate the file, click "Open."


Look in the temporary files on your computer.

Complete a search for files that end in the extension .tmp by typing "*.tmp" into the search box.


Narrow the search down to specific dates of when you were working on the document.

If the file does not show up, try searching for the "~*.*" convention.


Some temporary files are in this format instead.

If your document is now in your temporary files, you will need to recover the damaged document.

Search for it within Word.


Click "Open and Repair" when you find it.






Hope this helps

Looking for word document I did not save


Open Microsoft Word if it's not already open.

This may automatically open a list of your recent unsaved files, which with any luck includes the one you're looking for.


If this happens, simply open this document from the list.


Click the blue "File" tab in Word, and then click "Info" on the left side of the screen.


Click the "Manage Versions" icon to bring up a list of options.


Click "Recover Unsaved Documents" from this list. This opens a list of your unsaved documents.


Select the document you're looking for in this list, and then click "Open."

This opens the document, which now has a yellow bar across the top.


Click the "Save As" button in the yellow bar.

Save your document with your desired name to your preferred location.

From my experiance you need to Remove mscoree.dll from C:\windows\system32 directory. Reboot if necessary. This should solve the problem.

Odd Install date on software


It's really not a problem, and has been a flaw in XP for a very long time. It has to do with the way it "guesses" in the registry entry.

Here's a link to a blog about this from years ago

Odd Dates reported


I've seen this happen on PCs that have had some virus\spyware issues. Provided the Cmos battery is good, run an online virus scan. The other times I've come across this issue is from software that has it's activation cracked.

New installation on Toshiba lap top. Unable to transfer data from Quicken 99 on IBM lap top. IBM did not recognize flash drive. Copied to email and sent from IBM. 3 messages below with attempts to add...


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.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

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 /.
