I could not update to version R34.20. A message said another program was using Quicken. I deleted Quicken from the cloud and that message no longer appears. BUT, when I search for updates to Quicken, it says I have latest version which is R34.19.

    I followed the instructions for downloading the Mondo Patch. During the download it brought up a Quicken screen with an error message stating something about improper protocol. In essence I didn't get any more instructions. BUT I went into Quicken and check for updates, said install and it did!!! I have no idea why or how it happened, but it did.

    Just to clarify -
    The above download is from the Quicken support website
    and any error messages would have been "website" related and not really the Quicken software product.

    After Check for Updates - what version are you finally running now....   Help --> About Quicken

    I could not update to version R34.24. Yesterday I had same problem with update R34.20. You responded and I thank you. Is the same type of problem happening with this update? A message said another program was using Quicken.

    Hello @spenmay1943

    Thank you for your response. There is a new alert for Quicken version R34.24 having issues being implemented with Norton. For additional updates and information please click here. I apologize for the nuisance.

    Thanks! I do not have Norton installed. I use another security software. The update R34.24 failed this AM also. I guess I will wait until Quicken creates a fix for whatever this issue maybe. The same error message, "another program using this file".

    There are a few other discussions going on in the Community about this "file in use" issue.
    May I ask what other security software you are using?
    Are you also using feature that could be called "Live Backup" (immediately creates a backup of any new or changed file to a cloud or external storage location). I'm just guessing, but this could be what's interfering with the installation process. If that were the case, does your backup process have a delay feature (e.g., delay backup for 15 minutes)? This would allow installation to proceed without live backup getting in the way. Many installation files are short-lived or temporary in nature and don't really need to be backed up immediately.

    I don't have any "Live Backup" that I'm aware of. I use Trend Micro Internet Security.

    6. Have you cleaned your computer?
    7. Cleaned your Windows Registry?

    I appreciate the suggestions but I do not believe any of the suggestions are the reason for the fix not downloading.
