    I suggest you perform a clean uninstall, install Quicken 2016 while disconnected from the internet, and update.  If you haven’t already, you may want to review and follow the Quicken 2017 guidance:  https://www.quicken.com/support/using-qcleanui-uninstall-quicken   To update, I suggest you download and apply the Quicken 2016 Release R19.5 Mondo patch: http://www.quicknperlwiz.com/quickenpatches.html

    So you are saying you inadvertently changed the name of the downloaded file when you performed step #4.

    Which browser did you use?  When we click on a hyper link, the browser should use the href's url for the name of the file we download.

    No matter how I do it, whether dragging or clicking on it to save as opposed to executing, the file saves with (1) at the end. If you save multiple times the number in the ( ) increases. There's a space btwn the name & (#).

    Hi @dgeisel ,

    Both QcleanUi and Msiclean32 must be located in the same Desktop Sub-folder to work. Those two files, must be in the folder alone.

    See this procedure: 


    Hi All,

    This is for all versions of Quicken 2016 for Windows not just Deluxe.

    Open Quicken. Go to File > Backup and Restore > Backup your Quicken Data File(s) before starting.

    Firefox 32-Bit from here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

    Waterfox 64-Bit from here: https://www.waterfox.net/

    Create a New Folder on the Desktop. Rename the Folder, New Briefcase, which can be done in Windows 10, too. Always rename a New Folder, because when you create New Folders within any folder and don't rename Folders, Windows names the folders, New Folder, New Folder (2) and so on. You won't be able to find anything without renaming New Folders.

    Once you have done that, start Firefox or Waterfox and go into Tools then click Options. On the General Tab, find  Downloads, then Under Downloads see Save files to:. Click on the Browse Button. Click Desktop then click on New Briefcase. Saves you the trouble of having to tell where to Save the Downloads to and makes the downloads, easier to find, right on the Desktop..

    I am assuming that you already have the Installation Program for Quicken 2016 Flavors.

    Close Quicken. Do not uninstall it.

    Re-open Firefox or Waterfox and click on the link below for downloading QCleanUI.exe

    Download QcleanUI.exe from this link:
    https://www.quicken.com/support/using-qcleanui-uninstall-quicken?priorityCode=1348800000

    Left-click on QCleanUI.exe to start the Download and click Save. Left-click on MSIClean.exe to start the Download and click Save.
    Create a new sub-folder of Briefcase Folder and name it QClean. Move both QCleanUI.exe and MSIClean.exe into QClean. Now simply open QClean. Right-click on QCleanUI.exe  and left-click Run as administrator. Choose to Clean All Versions. Do not use Programs and Features to uninstall your Quicken Program.

    Use Programs and Features to remove iSeek AnswerWorks English Runtime, which Quicken installs.

    Restart the computer. After the computer restarts, use Explorer to delete / no need to rename the following folders: (Except if you also have other Intuit Products installed, expand those folders and delete the Quicken folders, only.)

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\AnswerWorks 5.0

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intuit

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Quicken

    C:\ProgramData\Intuit

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Roaming\Intuit

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Roaming\Quicken

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Local\Intuit

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Local\Intuit_Inc

    Empty the following folders, with the exception of Files in use:

    C:\Users\User ID\AppData\Local\Temp

    C:\Windows\Temp

    Run Disk Cleanup.

    Don't download the Installer again if you already have it.

    Download CCleaner Free from: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner

    Once you have CCleaner Free installed, run the Cleaner portion first.
    Analyze first and Run Cleaner.
    Click Registry on the Left.
    Scan for Issues.
    Fix selected Issues. Then Run it again because on x64 Bit Installations, it doesn't fix all on the first pass.

    Right-click on the Quicken Program Installer and click Run as administrator.

    Once the program is installed a Window will Popup concerning Program Updates click Cancel.

    Restart the computer.

    Open your browser.

    Go to: http://www.quicknperlwiz.com/quickenpatches.html
    Scroll down to Quicken 2016 and download the following Mondo Patches:
    R8 Mondo, R12 Mondo and finally R19.5 Mondo.

    Once downloaded, install Mondo Patch R8, R12 and finally in order R19.5

    Once Mondo Patch R16.1 is installed, you can then open Quicken, but do not launch Quicken until Mondo Patch R 19.5.

    Until April 30, 2019, you can finish upgrading using the Check for Updates under Help, once you have Quicken registered.

    See this Article for the reason you need to apply the Mondo Patches in Steps:
    https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7571578/resolution-quicken-for-windows-2016-wont-open-after-installing-and-updating-to-the-latest-patch
    "
    First, a big THANKS to QPW for first identifying a solution for this issue!


    Some users are reporting that after installing and updating Quicken for Windows 2016, then updating to the latest patch, they are unable to open Quicken. This issue occurs because older versions of Quicken require an intermediary patch in order to update to the latest release.


    To resolve this issue:
    1. Uninstall and reinstall Quicken 2016.
    2. Download the Release 8 Mondo Patch here.
    3. After downloading and installing the Release 8 patch, download the Release 12 Mondo Patch here.
    You should now be able to open and use Quicken as expected.

    If you have any issues during this process, please contact Quicken Support.

    Now click on Quicken to Open Quicken. It will not find any Quicken Data Files, because it doesn't know where to look. Choose to Restore a Backup Quicken Data File. Let Quicken Convert it, before using One Step Update.

    When you go to Register the program again, be sure to click Already have an Quicken ID.

    You need to complete the Survey portion of the Registration, in order for Next to become clickable.

    Before using One Step Update, check your Converted Quicken Data File.

    Note 1: You do not need the previous version of Quicken installed to reinstall and convert any Quicken Data Folder. When you restore an older Backup, Quicken will convert the Data File after restoring it, as long as it isn't too old.

    Note 2: Each Quicken Data File gets registered, including existing Quicken Data Files.

    You appear to have missed the point.  The file name in the URL is: MSIClean32.exe  You have said the name of the file you obtained when you clicked on the link is: msiclean.exe.  I'm not able to reproduce the behavior you reported using Google chrome.

    No maybe I wasn't clear the file begins as msiclean32.exe but when saved in the newly created folder it becomes msiclean32 (1).exe. With each attempt the (1) increases by 1 to (2) .. (3) and so on. I even tried eliminating the "(1)" manually to in effect rename the file however qcleanui.exe when executed continues to look for msiclean32.exe

    OK for whatever reason msiclean32.exe isn't running.  What I suggest is that you do everything else that @thecreator suggests in his comment the ccleaner should do some of the same things that msiclean32.exe was suppose to do.  And most important is to delete those folders that he points out.

    Hopefully that will get you fixed up.

    Well I want to thank everyone for their assistance however I'm giving up. After trying everything suggested nothing seems to work. Finally got the cleaner to work. Tried a different browser. Tried with shutting down the internet. Tried so many things I can't even remember them all. Ultimately I believe when loading the program the initial screen to begin the installation has two boxes checked - some saying implying are you ready to install & do you want to contact quicken to update - you don't have the ability to check out of the update. And even if I install without the internet once I fire it up I believe it heads home to quicken because it wants me to register the product. So as I said thanks for everyone input but it seems a lost cause!
