Windows Quicken version on Laptop is older than on desktop, yet says "most up to date"

quickreply1009 Member ✭✭
Normally I'm on Windows 10 at home on a desktop using Quicken v.
When I travel, I use a laptop. Quicken states to use the same version on your data.
But on my Windows 10 laptop, Quicken says v. is the most up to date version. Please explain.

    Quicken releases updates in stage releases.  When first released, only a specific number of users get the update and then it's pulled to make sure it's bug free.  Think of it as "advanced beta" testing.  

    One of your computers must have gotten the staged release and the other must not have made the cut.

    Do you really need to download the mondo update to force match the two computers or will versions only a month apart still work okay to exchange the data file when traveling? I would rather wait and let computer update on it's own but needed to know if that will be a problem when I travel.

    In general most of the time there won't be any problem with running two different versions of Quicken.  There have been rare cases where this isn't true, but I don't think there have been any cases recently.
