Permission problem?

This is the first time I've posted on a forum so please forgive me if I'm not doing it quite right.

My question is "I have Quicken 2001 Deluxe. Is there a way I can install it on Windows10"

This question has been asked before, so when I clicked on it, I got the message "PERMISSION PROBLEM - You don't have permission to do that!"
How can I find the answer to my question?

    You've come to the right place. Q2001 is not compatible with Windows 10. You can update to Q2013 at no cost and that will work with W10.

    Thanks for this, GeoffG. I had read through the link you suggested. It talks about having to convert to Quicken 2004 before converting to 2013? [Is this correct?]

    Under "Overview" on this link it states:
    Note: The conversion process provided here applies only to U.S. versions of Quicken.

    I then found this post, where someone has, indeed, had the US version problem. I hope you can find it as I'm not yet allowed to post links so I've deleted the https bit!

    One of the last contributors to this post talked about buying a Quicken 2004 UK version on EBay and this is what I've done. It comes with full instructions and has some encouraging reviews. Haven't been able to try it out yet, as my Windows10 computer is not yet ready.

    Assuming it works, do I then need to convert to Quicken 2013?

    I should add that I only use the Banking and Reports features of Quicken.

    YES you need to convert.

    The conversion utility applies to us version only. You do not state if this is an issue for you.

    Cannot say as I'm not sure about Q2004 UK.

    If you are not on a US version, then I would make sure to have backups in case there is an issue, you won't lose you data.

    Thanks again GeoffG for your help.

    RE: Note: The conversion process provided here applies only to U.S. versions of Quicken. The conversion utility applies to us version only. You do not state if this is an issue for you.

    I think my Quicken 2001 Deluxe is a UK version as it talks about VAT and uses the £ symbol so I'm imagining this could be an issue for me. How does one tell whether you have UK or US version?

    The version can be found by pressing Help>About.
    Since you are using a UK version, there is a SuperUser in the UK that is very knowledgeable. I'll ask if he can step in...

    Thanks again.
    My version is Quicken 2001 deluxe, Release R1. Does that information identify it as a UK version?
  • GeoffGGeoffG SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭
    As I've only used the US version, and it does not state US, I can't say. I've reached out to Dan so hopefully he will drop by when he gets a chance.

    Hi @Clarinet2

    It's difficult to be sure if you have a UK version or not from the information that you've given, but it doesn't really matter as the only way to find out if the file will convert is to try it.  I successfully converted a copy of the UK version of Q2000 deluxe using the process and downloads in the link that @GeoffG gave you earlier in this thread.

    Make sure you have a backup copy of your data file before you start, then download and install the version of Q2004 from here and try opening your data file with it.  If it successfully converts, download and install Q2013 from the same link, and convert  your Q2004 file to Q2013.

    If the file won't convert your options are limited.  You could try and install the UK version of Q2004 that you say you have obtained, that should open and convert your Q2001 file, and you could then continue to use that version.  If the US version linked above won't convert your Q2001 file I wouldn't be optimistic about them converting a Q2004UK file, but you could try if you wish (making sure you take backups along the way of course).

    Another option if you get the file open with the UK version of Q2004 is to keep that for reference purposes but start a brand new file with Q2013 downloaded from the link above.  At some point in the future Q2004UK won't be compatible with Windows developments and you'll lose access again, so moving to a more recent version now might be sensible.

    If you try the conversion, be sure to let us know how it goes!

    Thanks very much for this, Dan. My Windows10 computer is not ready yet, but as soon as it is I'll have a go at the conversion and let you know how I get on.

    An alternative is to use MS Money Sunset as an intermediary to go from QW2001 UK to MS Money to QWin-US. Read this article about downloading and installing MS Money on Windows 10.
