Transition from Quicken 2017 to Q 2020 Premier: should I wait until I change PCs?

I currently have Q 2017 Premier R19.8 on a desktop with Win 7 which is running fine so I'm not in a rush to convert. My data file was created many years ago - maybe 2007 or so. I just bought Quicken 2020 Premier subscription to get the better price before the offer expires.
But -- I plan to buy and move to a new Win 10 Pro desktop in the next month. My question: Any pros/cons to consider on downloading/installing Q2020 Premier now, versus waiting to download and install after I move to the new PC??

    Where did you purchase Quicken Subscription? If it was from Quicken you might as well get a new computer now and load Quicken Subscription since your subscription started on the day of purchase.

  • Yes I bought it from Quicken and I understand the subscription clock has started - not a big deal to me. I guess my real question is whether it might be any technical reasons that it would be easier/safer to wait and update Quicken database on the Windows 10 platform than to do it now on my current Win7 PC and then port to new machine.
