Quicken is one of the "friendlier" applications. Unless your hard drive is full, you don't need to uninstall the older one to install the new one. I suspect the uninstaller has failed. Without more detail, I can't help there. However, Quicken will install the new one and may even attempt to uninstall the old one itself. Regardless, you should be able to just install the new one and have it locate your existing data. Don't just delete the directory as you'll probably delete your data as well.

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!!

Run time error 13 type mismatch


It could be (and I am not a programmer either) is that there is somecorrupt entry in the registry or in the installation folder of yourAstro program.

This is what I would do.Try do completely de-install the program. I would use the free revo-uninstaller (you can get it here) and choose option 4 (Advanced). Delete all associated files that the program finds.
The huge advantage over MS's Add or Remove Programs is, that it also catches unnecessary program files left behind on your computer.

Download ccleaner (from here, make sure not to install the stupid Yahoo! Toolbar in "Install Options"!) and install it. Don't run it yet!
Restart your computer and run ccleaner (both clean and Registry)and get rid of all the ****. If you want to be super careful, you havethe option to make a registry backup from within ccleaner.

This way you (hopefully) have deleted any traces of older installations of the Astro program.

Restart your computer again after the cleanup and try to re-install your program again.

If you have any more questions or this suggestion did not work, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

The Nero software came with InCD, which is a program that allows you to drag files directly onto the CD without having to run CD burning software. It's a novel idea, but I don't think it works all that well. If you're not planning to use it, then uninstall it. If you can't find it in the "Add/Remove programs" list, then you may have to uninstall the Nero software and then reinstall it but unselect to have the InCD software installed.

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

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.

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.
