Amazon Quicken purchase
edited May 2022 in File Conversion and Backup (Mac)
Do anyone know if I can download a Amazon digital purchased Quicken Deluxe non subscription Windows version to my new MacBook Air 2020?
Only if you are running Windows on your Mac. Like using a third party program like Parallels.1
Purchase of the current, subscription, version of Q included both QWin and QMac.Older, pre-subscription, purchases are either/or ... NOT both.Are you buying from Amazon itself? Or an individual who's selling on Amazon? Be VERY vary of the latter.Q user since DOS version 5

Would Windows only using Quicken take up a lot of my 256GB storage?0

ALWAYS AMAZON. Sounds like I’m going to have to buy subscription version which is over $30 a year. Paid $50 for 4 years of Quicken Deluxe for $50. Was also trying to get away from friggin Windows which currently will not update on crappy Dell Laptop I overpaid for and is dying.0
If you decide you're going to use Quicken for Mac, then I do encourage purchasing the current version rather than an old pre-subscription version -- even though it will definitely cost more in the long run. The reason is that unlike Quicken Windows, the re-write of Quicken Mac last decade means that there was a lot of functionality missing in the early release of the new Quicken Mac, and a lot has been added and fixed over the past four years. Unless you're a very light Quicken user, starting with an older version of Quicken Mac will be like tying a hand behind your back. (I don't think you can find any old versions of Quicken for Mac on Amazon actually sold by Amazon; I couldn't when I just checked. Any old versions are all third party sellers, so that's another reason to be wary.)Quicken Mac Subscription • Quicken user since 19930
