Quicken 2019 not installing

I just purchased Quicken 2019 for my windows laptop. After downloading I open the program from the download file, file extraction seems fine, I used the default location and hit install. At that point, the wizard starts for about 3 seconds and then disappears and nothing else happens. I waited an hour and it is still not showing as installed and nothing else has prompted. I am running Windows 10 (Home).

I have tried a restart and ensured I have the updated version of the windows. What am I missing? Under the control panel, it is still not reflecting that it is even installed.

    If you previously had Quicken on your computer and you un-installed it using Windows Add/Remove programs, all of the Quicken program files may not be completely removed even though they are not showing in the Add/Remove programs folder.

    Thanks, I have never had Quicken on this computer before. I attempted to try the qcleanui just in case it was there and I could not see it or I missed something but it did not find any files on this computer.

    Thanks. I followed the reinstall and ran the cleaner twice to be sure. It still did not work, however, it did prompt me to run a troubleshooter this time and when I did it gave me the following message.

    I am currently running Windows 10 (Home). The download is there, the extraction part seems fine but when I hit install, the screen only stays up for 2-3 sec then disappears and nothing else happens. So it looks like it is just not installing for some reason.

    You posted Windows 10 Home, but not the Build information, which is critical to know.

    Please let me know if this works for what you were referring too.

    Please try this:
    Locate the downloaded and saved Quicken installation file (typically in your Downloads folder)
    Right-click it. Select Properties.
    Select the Compatibility tab.
    Uncheck any settings, especially the "Run in compatibility mode for older Windows versions".
    Click Apply for all users. Click Exit.
    Now right-click the file again.
    Select Run as Administrator.
    And run the program.
    Better?

    Hi @Pete ,

    Open Settings. Click on Update and Security. Do you see an Optional Feature Build to be downloaded and installed? If so, download and install. If not, click Check for Updates.

    This may fix the problems you are having.

    Also, did you download a new Quicken Installer from your Account at Quicken?

    The installer starts, goes until I click "Install" and switches to the installing page with the progress bar and immediately closes with no error or notification. I am on Windows 10. Fresh installation, never used quicken on this computer before.

    If you haven't done so already, I'd say it's time to call Quicken Support on the phone and request help.  Let them do a screen share session with you to review an installation log file on your computer, to determine the nature of the problem and to figure out how to fix it.

    Glad you got it installed....
    But it does amaze me that folks turn on all these "protection" features,
    and then can't understand why something can't be installed -
