Need Quicken 2007 for Mac

Unknown

Does anyone know where I can get Quicken 2007 for Mac? I have Quicken 2004 files that need to be converted to 2007 before they can be converted to 2017. Any advice is appreciated!

    You can try to get it from Quicken support. If you have already purchased QM2017, you can get it for free as an intermediary version. https://www.quicken.com/support#osx

    I suggest that you make sure that Quicken 2017 for Mac will meet your needs, since it is not an upgrade from QM2007 but rather from Quicken Essentials (which was re-written from the ground up, starting in 2010), so there are some features that are still not there e.g. loan amortization, 2-line display, QuickMath, auto-backups, or are not as fully developed yet, e.g. Customized Reports, investment lot management, performance reports and stats (therefore some data may not carry over). You can start here:
    http://www.quicken.com/mac/compare

    Currently, the main advantages of QM2017 over QM2007 include the ability to sync cash, bank, and credit card accounts using Quicken Mobile for mobile devices (iOS and Android) and the ability to save receipts with transactions via computer or mobile device. There are a few other minor features that QM2007 does not have. Note that QM2017 is being supported until April 30, 2020 whereas it has been announced that security fixes have ceased for QM2007 since QM2017 is released...see http://www.quicken.com/support/update-quicken-mac-2007-support-policies-may-2016 yet online access will continue as long as the FI/Bank supports it and their security updates don't prevent it.

    smayer97: Do you know for a fact that Quicken support will still give a user a free copy of 2007 as a bridge from older versions to the current product? I know they used to do this, but support for Quicken 2007 was finally discontinued two months ago, and I wasn't sure if that changed anything. Just curious.

    I do not know if you can purchase it, that is why I said "...try to obtain..." but I do know that one user who did purchase QM2017 did get QM2007 in a very recent post.  

    But I also asked for a report back to try to get more confirmation.

    Thank you both for your posts. I'm going to call Quicken on Monday to see about a bridge for converting my files. Nice to know they have done that in the past and that 2007 was only recently stopped being supported. Appreciate your help!

    I need to rebuild my 5 yo MBP and have been figuring where I got all the apps I have on it - download, CD, what comes with the OS install. 

    Currently we're running QM2007 for Mac because we bought QM2015 and can't stand the new register display; just prefer the old fashioned checkbook register format.

    Anyway, we can't find the Install CD yet and I came here to see what options we have.  Good to know QM2017 still has problems, so starting to think it's time to look at other options since QM2007 won't last forever.

    Thanks for all the info and am going to contact Intuit so we can squeeze a few more years out this version I LUV.

    I am trying to upgrade from Quicken 2002. To get to the latest version I must first upgrade to Quicken 2007. When I contacted Quicken support they said they no longer support 2007 and I would have to try and find one on line. They suggested buying one from Amazon.

    I think they were confused. Amazon doesn't sell very old software. I think they meant to suggest looking on eBay, where you can sometimes find one.

    You need to be aware there are two distinct "flavors" of Quicken 2007, and which one you need depends on the computer(s) and operating system(s) you have available. Do you still have the old Mac which has been running Quicken 2002, as well as a new one which would run Quicken 2018? If so, then any copy of Quicken 2007 will work. If you no longer have the Mac running Mac OS 10.6.8 or earlier, and are trying to just update the file on a modern Mac, then you must find the version of Quicken 2007 called "Quicken for Lion" or "Quicken for Mac Lion Compatible" or version 16.1.x or later.

    You can try to get it from Quicken support. If you have already purchased QM2017, you can get it for free as an intermediary version. https://www.quicken.com/support#osx

    I suggest that you make sure that Quicken 2017 for Mac will meet your needs, since it is not an upgrade from QM2007 but rather from Quicken Essentials (which was re-written from the ground up, starting in 2010), so there are some features that are still not there e.g. loan amortization, 2-line display, QuickMath, auto-backups, or are not as fully developed yet, e.g. Customized Reports, investment lot management, performance reports and stats (therefore some data may not carry over). You can start here:

    Currently, the main advantages of QM2017 over QM2007 include the ability to sync cash, bank, and credit card accounts using Quicken Mobile for mobile devices (iOS and Android) and the ability to save receipts with transactions via computer or mobile device. There are a few other minor features that QM2007 does not have. Note that QM2017 is being supported until April 30, 2020 whereas it has been announced that security fixes have ceased for QM2007 since QM2017 is released...see http://www.quicken.com/support/update-quicken-mac-2007-support-policies-may-2016 yet online access will continue as long as the FI/Bank supports it and their security updates don't prevent it.

    If you find that QM2017 does not meet your needs, the alternative is to try to obtain and run QM2007 Lion Compatible (LC), which will run on Mac OS X 10.6.8 to 10.12 Sierra (so far) by contacting Quicken support here: http://www.quicken.com/contact-support

    Yup, I see those offers on Amazon, too, so I stand corrected in saying Amazon doesn't sell such old software. But there's a big Buyer Beware on those sales of old, used copies of Quicken 2007 (aside from the fact that they're price-gouging by selling for far more than the program sold for when it was current): the sellers do not indicate whether it is the original Quicken 2007 (16.0.x) which will only run on computers running Mac OS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) or earlier, but that is what I'd assume if these are all from original boxed versions.

    If you have a Mac running Mac OS 10.7 (Lion) or later, the original Quicken 2007 will NOT run at all; you need to find Quicken 2007 for Lion (version 16.1.x). I'm not sure, but I don't think there were any boxed versions of the updated Quicken 2007 for Lion. I would suggest you message the seller(s) on Amazon and ask them to check exactly what version they are selling you before you buy, to make sure it's the version you want/need.
