Why did Millliman Benefits quotes stop after update on 10/29/20?

I never could get transactions from MB but after the last update I don't get mutual fund prices.

    Milliman appears to ONLY offer downloads via Web Connect, where you initiate the download from their website into Q.
    Is that how you've previously been downloading?

    I never had to do this. I only updated quotes not transactions. This is a 403b and a bank. I never had a way to download files that I know of. The link did not work with Firefox. Again it is MillimanBenefits.com not Milliman.com I just set the account up manually last year and entered the Fund tickers and it always updated prices at closing until I updated Quicken this week.

    The Milliman entry in Q appears to include the Benefits  portion  also.
    See this link,  with the Milliman.com URL.

    I'm on that site quite often and have never seen a download feature. Like I said the Quicken quotes stopped after v 5.18.2. I'll call Milliman tomorrow and ask. I was on a chat with Quicken support and after I refused to go to an older data file she said that there were other reports of quotes not working after the update.

    Try adding a new, fictitious Milliman Benefits account to your file.  It's possible that Milliman has dropped support for QMac, while maintaining it for QWin.

    Thanks I did notice you were on Windows. Yes I tried yesterday to set up another new account. I never could set up direct connect. My account was imported last year from Q2007 for Mac. My Q2007 would not update quotes but Q2020 would until 10/29/20.

    Can you download quotes, and transactions, into other accounts in Q?
    Also, see if you can find, on your Mac, a file named FIDIR.TXT.  That where Q stores all of the info about "Participating Financial Institutions".  When you find it, open it with a TEXT editor (not MS Word, or anything like that) and search for the word MILLIMAN.  What did you find?
