Can't register Quicken 98 - website folded

  astral traveller 21:57 22 Apr 2007

I've just bought a new pc and transferred all my files and programs over including Quicken. It runs okay except I only have so many uses (15) before I have to register - I have already registered but the new pc doesn't know that - I tried to register again but I've found that the Quicken website wound up last year. I didn't anticipate this and have deleted Quicken from my old pc. Is there anyway around this or do I have to purchase another similar program?

Quicken stopped support in UK in Jan 2006 click here.

I don't know if this will help click here

Other personal finance apps will import Quicken data if you have to go for something else. Also, Quicken is still alive in the US click here Try emailing them there.

they did mail be back 2 registration numbers none of which work. Following a further email from me they have suggested I upgrade to Quicken 2007. I probably will have to purchase another program or may try Moneybox. Anyone know which is the best program for downloading or linking with online bank accounts?

I don't know whether this will be of any help - click here

They ask for a six digit serial number which I assume is the product serial number.

Money imports Quicken data and if your bank is one o the ones it supports it will connect and download your data without any fuss. Don't tell my dad, but I use Money rather than Moneybox!

Thanks, but the serial number I have is 10 digits, I have emailed Quicken/intuit support a few times and they did give me a couple of numbers which they said would register the product but they don't. Neilroyden I haven't had any success yet but maybe you could try emailing them at [email protected] let me know how you get on.

I had the same problem with 2000 de Luxe and quite by accident discovered that clicking the cancel button when you got to the last use, and not the register button, actually enabled continued use.

I stopped using Quicken in favour of Moneybox a couple of years ago.

I didn't/don't use either of them to link with Online banking. I use Excel, but I understand that Moneybox is capable of linking with Online banking.

As I am retired I only use Moneybox to reconcile my bank statements because I can enter better descriptions than my bank statements.

eg. a cheque number on my bank statement means nothing to me, (I have to look up the cheque stub to see the details) but in Moneybox I can enter who and what it paid for.
