What is Quicken Validator?

Where do you find it? Have message that says "Please close the Quicken Validator before running Quicken." I have no idea what or where this is nor how to close it. Need help.

  • What is the Quicken validator? This just started after the last update. I checked the Quicken Help it doesn't even recognize the term.

    This sounds to be part of the install process. If you have not rebooted since your last upgrade, I would suggest starting there and see if the message has cleared.
