2 Quicken email addresses on the same desktop?

Is there a way to have 2 subscription addresses to the same desktop?
I am helping someone set up their Quicken and need to set it up on my desktop before giving it to them to use on their desktop.
I still need to use my Quicken also.
How can I do this if they have a different subscription?
They are not using Mobile/Web.

    I would create and separate Windows user account.

    Good suggestion.  Thanks.
    Apparently, Quicken can't do multiple subscriptions for the same Windows user on the same desktop.

    You could keep signing in and out of the 2 Quicken IDs but it's easier to create a second Windows user.

  • Hello @leishirsute

    Thank you for reaching out to Quicken Community. We apologize you are having difficulties. Your Quicken.com account is your main account where your active subscription resides. Could you please clarify what you mean by deactivating/deleting a Quicken.com account login? What is the end goal? 

    Please elaborate so that we may provide the proper guidance. Thank you!

    I have some extra logins on quicken.com that I want to delete.  They are no longer used.

    I tried this, and whatever they are using to save the information about what Quicken Id is logged in is global to the machine, not the user account or data file.

    Well that sucks! It must be in C:\ProgramData\Quicken somewhere.

    Maybe that has been answered before, but ...
    Can't you use your Quicken ID on the second data file while you're working on it?
    Then, when you're ready to return the file create a backup. On the latest releases of Quicken this disconnects any online connections of the file. What I'm not sure about is the Quicken ID. Upon restoring the backup file on the other computer, can't you re-register the file to their Quicken ID?

    Hmm.  I don't know.  What do you mean "disconnects any online connections of the file"?

    From what I read here, backup or copy now creates a "disconnected copy", i.e., all online download connections are reset and need to be reestablished after the file is restored. I'm not sure of the impact that will have in your case. Somebody else would have to answer that better than I can do.

    Backup preserves connections. Copy disconnects them.
