Quick followup for those following the thread...
This morning I decided to again try and tackle this problem. Following the instructions earlier in this thread, I had previously rolled back to R27.42. This morning, instead of doing the mass One Step Update, I went to each individual account and chose the "Update Now" option. I saved Schools First Federal Credit Union, which is my primary banking accounts and had the most problems before, for last. Went through my various accounts one by one with NO duplicate entries. Saved another backup, held my breath, and updated SFFCU. It updated with no duplicates, did download some recent transactions from the last few days, however it missed two transactions (one a POS debit card transaction, one a check deposit). I have been experiencing missed transactions with this account since it transitioned to the new connection method a few weeks ago. Note that on Friday 8/14 when I tried OSU on after rolling back to this version I was still getting all the duplicates going back several years. I was also experiencing the behavior that someone else reported with many transactions linked to "[Unassigned Account] ".
I then tried a OSU and no further transactions were found. I was not prompted to update to the latest version. I also tried the "Check For Updates" option under the Help menu, and it stated I was on the latest version.
Based on my experience today:
1. I wonder if Quicken has disabled the updating to the latest update due to reported problems.
2. While annoying and I hope it gets eventually fixed, I would MUCH rather deal with a few missed downloaded transactions rather than having dozens of duplicates to sort through.

Hi All,Our Teams have been investigating the duplicate transaction behavior and have created a solution that is part of the R28.18 hot fix, now available in staged release format.If you would prefer to not wait for this release to go live to all Users, please download and install the Mondo Patch, available here.Once installed, the duplicated transactions should not occur again, but please let us know how it goes.Thank you,Sarah
Continued on additional errant actions from the most recent update.
1) When opening Quicken, it presents the Quicken ID login popup screen despite this feature being turned off in the preferences.
Once the credentials are entered, the moving circle icon is displayed and will not go away. Waiting as long as 10 minutes (I have monitored the time) and nothing changes. I have to force Quicken to close.
On the next iteration of opening Quicken, the login screen is again presented and after presenting the credentials, it processes the login and presents the initial welcome screen as if it were the first time I was logging in with the Quicken ID.
Today however, there are additional problems. On the first attempt to open Quicken after the hanging login attempt, the program opened after the credentials were entered but I immediately noticed that the color scheme had changed back to the default Blue. I had always had my preferences set to Teal. The program then crashed and closed with a popup from something called Bug Squat (or something like that) wanting to send a bug report in with some attached files. Since there was nothing identifying this as a function of Quicken, I closed the popup without sending the bug report.
I then opened quicken a third time and it did not present the login screen. I reset my color scheme setting and closed and reopened a fourth time. Again, it did not present the login screen this time but I will be checking it daily to see if that action recurs.
2) The registers that initially contained the duplicated entries after the update continue to revert to the incorrect sort order. Only those registers are affected. They sort By Date descending (newest at top). I have to reset them to sort by Date / Order Entered ascending each time.
Another issue I have been experiencing since the update is that when I enter a payee that has been memorized, the category is not automatically filling in. In the payee field, I see the memorized payee name, and the last category entries used for that payee. Whichever one I select, the category remains blank.
The question of the day here is, IF I open the copy that was backed up prior to the update that blew everything up, will it allow a OSU without causing al the duplication ???
I really don't have time to experiment and I really don't have time to sort through thousands of entries to find a handful of errant ones.
So, this thing just won't go away.
The unwanted sorting order of the affected accounts is STILL occurring. This is an annoyance that needs to be addressed.
downloading the Mondo Patch that Quicken Sarah posted above made my problem of the duplicates worse! How do I fix all my spending and savings accounts that are hundreds of the thousands off? Now how do I fix this huge mess across all my accounts?
