Home Quicken for Windows Installing and Updating (Windows)

Quicken 2016 unable to contact Quicken server error

I know Quicken 2016 is "out of date" but it does what I need and I refuse to pay for a subscription. That said, now when I launch it I get the subject error message. I assume Quicken is trying to check for updates but the server has been turned off. How can I stop the update check? I have already unchecked all the boxes under "Financial Institutions" to no avail.

    Hi "@FortFun"

    Not sure that this will help, however here's a recent thread that is very similar (if not identical) to your problem:  https://community.quicken.com/discussion/comment/20070230#Comment_20070230

    I would suggest that you consider downloading the most recent patch for Quicken 2016 - you can find it here:

    Frankx, @phil recently posted a solution for the problem here: https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7868832/qw2016-quits-with-server-file-failed-to-load-message and I'm re-posting here is case someone has the same issue and comes across this thread.

    He changed the following line in the quicken.ini file in C:\Program Data\Intuit\Quicken\Config

    Original line = "Periodic_update_period=4"

    Changed to = "Periodic_update_period=0"
