    How did you install Q on the old computer?  Do the same thing.
    What Q product, and BUILD of that product is on the old computer?  Do HELP, About Quicken for this info.
    After you've got Q onto the new computer, RESTORE a Q backup file created on the old computer to the new.

    How to download and install a supported version of Quicken (again) after you bought it

    If you don't have an installation CD or you didn't save a copy of the downloaded installation file on your hard drive (in Windows typically in a "Downloads" folder) or, even better, on some external storage media (USB stick or external hard drive) or a cloud backup service, please follow these instructions:

    Note: Quicken Canada users need to logon to https://www.quicken.com/canada/my-account instead of the US site, then follow the rest of the instructions

    If that doesn't resolve the issue, please contact Quicken Support at


    If you don't see your download file in the Quicken account you're looking at right now, you might have more than one account at quicken.com. Please follow the "How do I download …" link , specifically the section about "What if I don't see my software ..."
