    Don was this a CAD version of Quicken XG? That's old school software, probably 15 years.

    Thanks for the response JR7107
    Yes it is 15 years old but continued to do the job. I need to move on to a modern version. I live in South Africa and do not know of any local support.

    Congratulations!
    I'm not aware of a freebie Q 2013 H&B lurking around somewhere (and I'm hesitant to suggest looking around the Internet for someone selling old Quicken copies ... one just never knows what you're getting yourself into, if the seller isn't reputable.)
    Unless somebody else chimes in here ...
    I'd say, bite the bullet and purchase and install Q 2020 (Subscription) Home, Business and Rental https://www.quicken.com/personal-finance/quicken-home-business-2019 either directly from Quicken.com or any reputable Internet retailer, whoever gives you the best price for the longest possible subscription duration.
    Living abroad, you may have to fake a US address for product registration, but you should be able to obtain a downloadable copy of the software.
    Also please remember that the US version is geared towards the US market and doesn't handle foreign tax methods (VAT, etc.)
    If you really need business functions for invoicing, inventory, geared specifically towards your country of residence (South Africa, wasn't it?), I recommend checking in with Quickbooks to see if they have a version for your country.
