I am purchasing a new computer with Windows 11. I use Home & Business 2010 and have the disc. I do not use any online features. Will I be able to load H&B 2010 on my new computer without “upgrading” to the annual subscription format?

    We users don't know for sure.  No one has reported back their results from doing so yet.  Since it is a new computer, there is nothing to lose by trying.  Be sure to run the latest patch from this link, Quicken Patches , after you do the install.
    Please respond back with your results.

    -also older versions as needed for testing

    Thank you for the response. I'll get the computer this week and will give it a whirl before I buy a new program.

    Success!!!! I had to order an external DVD for my new computer (with Windows 11) and it finally arrived. I got my Quicken 2010 disc out and everything worked like a dream. My computer had to install something other than the CD first but it loaded and opened a file I had pulled off of my old computer that I had saved to an SD card. Just in case others are wondering.
