    Sure, you can use Quicken on as many PC's as you wish. Be aware that you cannot sync them or use them as if they were networked. You need to use backup and restore to keep them up to date.

    Thanks for responding, used Quicken for many years. Mainly use the program on my laptop. When I tried to up load the 2020 version from 2017 (R19.8) to my desktop - nothing. Appreciate the help

    You will need to elaborate by what you mean and what you've tried that did not work.

    If I am doing this correctly, under the help menu - when I pull down the menu to and click on "check for updates", the server states I have the latest update. V. (R19.8) . There are no other windows or pop ups allowing me to update the program. Thanks.

    You current version can only update up to the final version of Q2017. If you have purchased the subscription version, you need to go to quicken.com and log in to My Account. From there you will see the option to download the installer. Then you will be able to install the newest version. The subscription version will provide continual updates as long as your subscription is current.
