Installing - Which ID Do I Need to Use?

dpaulovichdpaulovich Member ✭✭
- I have a subscription Quicken premier
- I want to install it on a second computer
- Logged on to my account on line and downloaded Quicken.exe
- I run Quicken.exe and get to the sign in page. I entered the same credentials that I used
online without success. Had to use my other email address to log on.
- When I log on I see a request for an activation code.
- Evidently my subscription ID is different then my program ID.
- How to correct?
