This has nothing to do with online sync. It is Quicken prompting the user to export an investment portfolio to investing.quicken.com. This message appears when the user has chosen not to export any accounts in Preferences. It is harmless, if annoying, and yes, we all see it if we don't export accounts.
I am using Quicken Deluxe and I don't have Preference option titled "Investing Quicken.com" nor do I have One Step Update option to "Update portfolio..." . I've been getting the annoying "You need to select accounts to export" message ever since I selected preference Alerts and Messages, and Reset Quicken Warnings in an attempt to solve an unrelated issue.
