Why doesn't Quicken offer the option to one step update and back up before a program update?

Since a one step update (OSU) and backup are recommended before installing a program update, one wonders why Quicken doesn't offer that option? Now I have to say 'no' to the update, run OSU and do a backup, then come back and download and install the program update. Would be much simpler and easier if I was offered the option to OSU, backup and install the program update in one step. Perhaps you could pass this along to the developers.

    @NotACPA thanks for pointing that out! 

    It should be fixed now, but let me know if you still experience any trouble.

    Apparently Quicken now automatically backs up the current data file before updating, but I think it would be much better if it did not offer the update until the OSU is complete.

    This would have reduced the severity of the recent issues where some investing accounts were converted to Simple mode as part of the update. The OSU after updating sometimes caused investing transactions to be downloaded in Simple mode.
