Ok, so last year I thought I would update Quicken to the newest version - I have done this in the past every few years. Bought the subscription as this is the only option now (NO "offline" version)

[Removed - Rant]

When the year was up, I get a message indicating my subscription was up and unless I renew I would "no longer be able to download statements" (or whatever along that line. No problem since I don't really use that feature as I just want a basic ledger.

So i let the date past - [removed - rant] only to find out that if you do not renew quicken [removed - rant] will NOT allow you to basically continue to use it. Sure you can LOOK at your records, but you can't enter anything anymore and the beyond constant NAGGING.

    I guess you didn't read the EULA when you installed Quicken Subscription.

    Are you using Quicken Starter? That's the only version that becomes Read Only when your subscription expires. All other versions allow you to manually enter transactions though you have to deal with the nag screens.

    You can also revert back to Quicken 2016 or 2017 since the data file format hasn't changed.

    "I guess you didn't read the EULA when you installed Quicken Subscription." Guess not - but isn't that convenient. :pensive:

    Still, why does one have to deal with the nags screen PERIOD? Once you dismissed them, then they should be gone.

    Oh sure, I COULD "revert back Quicken 2016 or 2017" if I kept the original copy.
