    I have not started using Quicken yet .. But I am currently living in Kuwait and would like to know wether or not I can convert the currency to Kuwaiti Dinars? .. I would also like to know what features are available in Quicken as far as spendings or tallying daily transactions, because syncing daily transactions takes a lot of time .. Sometimes you don't have time to sync 2 days of transactions so you end up spending double the time only to update your spendings into the system .. So how does Quicken help me tackle all those problems

    Best Regards,

    Yes, you can use foreign currencies in Quicken for Windows on your desktop / laptop computer.
    When creating accounts in Quicken just select the desired currency.
    Please do note that you cannot connect foreign (non-US and Canada) bank accounts for transaction downloading. That is not supported. All you can do is to create "manual accounts" without download connectivity.
