nhorianhoria Member
Hi, i have an computer that run Quicken 98 - release 7.0 on a Window Vista 32 bit . When i tried to make a backup it ask me for inserting a "floppy disk" .
1. What is the procedure for backup the data without having a floppy disk unit ?
2. It is possible to give me a copy of the installing kit for this version in order to reinstall it to another computer ?
3. How i can move the license from this computer to another ?
Thanks !

    I'm amazed that you have a Quicken version from 1998
    that actually runs on any recent version of Windows...
    As far as a backup - given the results you shared, I would suggest just making a Windows copy of the files located in the Quicken data sub-dir - with Quicken closed.

    Quicken no longer supports, or offers, QW1998.  MAYBE you can find a copy on eBay, etc ... but I wouldn't bet on that.
    You probably need to upgrade to AT LEAST QW2013 ... which is the last version that didn't require an Intuit/Quicken ID.  And, like your current product, it won't be able to download from your banks/cards/brokerages/etc.

    Both FREE versions of QWin (2004 and 2013) offered at the link provided are compatible with Windows Vista so why not just download one of those and use it?

    They do not require floppy disks to perform backups.

    Thanks you for your answers, if i will "making a Windows copy of the files located in the Quicken data sub-dir - with Quicken closed" as suggested by "ps56K" how i should import the data from those files into another version like the latest version of Quicken - Deluxe ? I did`t find any other version of Quicken available for sale on this website other than the latest 4 versions (Starter/ Deluxe/ Premier/ Home&Business) .
