    Who did you buy Quicken from? 
    If from Q itself, no activation code is needed. Your product was activated the moment that you bought it.
    If from elsewhere, the activation code should have been sent from that vendor.

    Also, a common misunderstanding regarding upgrades. You do need to download Quicken Subscription and install if you are migrating from a prior version (Q2017). QSubscription will not update Q2017.

    Thank you. I see that the email that the order was placed through is [removed - privacy], but Quicken is demanding that I sign in through  [removed - privacy]. How do I untangle this tangle??

    Go to:  https://www.quicken.com/ Move the mouse over SIGN IN and click My Account.

    Sign in on the next page.

    You need to use your Quicken User ID and its password.

    Note: If you purchased from Quicken.com, there is no Activation Code.
