    Like posters have stated above, you can, but you can't use the same Quicken Installer to install on the other computers. Use your Browser and go to: https://www.quicken.com/ and Sign in to your My Account and download the installer from your Account to avoid problems.

    You don't need an Activation Code with that installer.

    If you are going to use the same Quicken Data File, be sure you choose to Restore the Data File from a Manual Backup.

    Yes.  We may install Quicken on as many computers as we want.

    To add to Sherlock's response, all of the installations will have to be registered against the same Quicken Id.

    They don't all have to be registered against the same Quicken Id.  

    The functionality is linked to the Quicken ID associated with the Quicken file being accessed.

    Let me clarify my statement.  In the past, you could create as many Quicken Ids (QID) as you wanted, but since subscription Quicken (2018+), a subscription can only have a single QID.  
    So, yes, you can have users with different QIDs open and use their data files with their own QID on the same Quicken installation, but if you only have the single subscription, all will have to use the same QID.

    You do not need another activation code to install Quicken on a second computer.  You only need to authenticate a Quicken ID.   An activation code is used to activate or extend a subscription when you purchase a Quicken subscription from a retailer.
