How can I sign in? I am asked to provide an Intuit log in and I am told that won't work?

I want to use Quicken Deluxe 2016 without any internet connections.

    WHAT do you want to sign into?  Because if you don't want any internet connections, you can only be talking about signing into Q itself.

    Hi @takabren ,

    This is for all versions of Quicken 2016 for Windows not just Deluxe.

    Open Quicken. Go to File > Backup and Restore > Backup your Quicken Data File(s) before starting.

    Firefox 32-Bit from here:

    Waterfox 64-Bit from here:

    Create a New Folder on the Desktop. Rename the Folder, New Briefcase, which can be done in Windows 10, too. Always rename a New Folder, because when you create New Folders within any folder and don't rename Folders, Windows names the folders, New Folder, New Folder (2) and so on. You won't be able to find anything without renaming New Folders.

    Once you have done that, start Firefox or Waterfox and go into Tools then click Options. On the General Tab, find  Downloads, then Under Downloads see Save files to:. Click on the Browse Button. Click Desktop then click on New Briefcase. Saves you the trouble of having to tell where to Save the Downloads to and makes the downloads, easier to find, right on the Desktop..

    I am assuming that you already have the Installation Program for Quicken 2016 Flavors.

    Close Quicken. Do not uninstall it.

    Re-open Firefox or Waterfox and click on the link below for downloading QCleanUI.exe

    Download QcleanUI.exe from this link:

    Left-click on QCleanUI.exe to start the Download and click Save. Left-click on MSIClean.exe to start the Download and click Save.
    Create a new sub-folder of Briefcase Folder and name it QClean. Move both QCleanUI.exe and MSIClean.exe into QClean. Now simply open QClean. Right-click on QCleanUI.exe  and left-click Run as administrator. Choose to Clean All Versions. Do not use Programs and Features to uninstall your Quicken Program.

    Use Programs and Features to remove iSeek AnswerWorks English Runtime, which Quicken installs.

    Restart the computer. After the computer restarts, use Explorer to delete / no need to rename the following folders: (Except if you also have other Intuit Products installed, expand those folders and delete the Quicken folders, only.)

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\AnswerWorks 5.0

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intuit

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Quicken


    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Roaming\Intuit

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Roaming\Quicken

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Local\Intuit

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Local\Intuit_Inc

    Empty the following folders, with the exception of Files in use:

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Local\Temp


    Run Disk Cleanup.

    Don't download the Installer again if you already have it.

    Download CCleaner Free from:

    Once you have CCleaner Free installed, run the Cleaner portion first.
    Analyze first and Run Cleaner.
    Click Registry on the Left.
    Scan for Issues.
    Fix selected Issues. Then Run it again because on x64 Bit Installations, it doesn't fix all on the first pass.

    Right-click on the Quicken Program Installer and click Run as administrator.

    Once the program is installed a Window will Popup concerning Program Updates click Cancel.

    Restart the computer.

    Open your browser.

    Go to:
    Scroll down to Quicken 2016 and download the following Mondo Patches:
    R8 Mondo, R12 Mondo and finally R16.1 Mondo.

    Once downloaded, install Mondo Patch R8, R12 and finally in order R16.1

    Once Mondo Patch R16.1 is installed, you can then open Quicken, but do not launch Quicken until Mondo Patch R 16.1.

    Until April 30, 2019, you can finish upgrading using the Check for Updates under Help, once you have Quicken registered.

    See this Article for the reason you need to apply the Mondo Patches in Steps:

    Now click on Quicken to Open Quicken. It will not find any Quicken Data Files, because it doesn't know where to look. Choose to Restore a Backup Quicken Data File. Let Quicken Convert it, before using One Step Update.

    When you go to Register the program again, be sure to click Already have an Quicken ID.

    You need to complete the Survey portion of the Registration, in order for Next to become clickable.

    Before using One Step Update, check your Converted Quicken Data File.

    Note 1: You do not need the previous version of Quicken installed to reinstall and convert any Quicken Data Folder. When you restore an older Backup, Quicken will convert the Data File after restoring it, as long as it isn't too old.

    Note 2: Each Quicken Data File gets registered, including existing Quicken Data Files.
