Forced Updates

Yes, I've seen the post about slowness/errors with today's update.

This post is to request that updates are not forced but made optional. This will allow the user to delay installing an update as they watch the Community to ensure no issues are being reported.

Yeah, I would have submitted this as an enhancement request from within Quicken but, yo know wut...I'm unable to use Quicken since this morning's forced update.

    To prevent Quicken from applying an update without your approval, I suggest you set Windows UAC settings appropriately (choose default or always notify).

    In regard to your current issue of being unable to use Quicken since installing this morning's update; could you please elaborate and provide further details on what is happening, or are you solely referring to the issue of being unable to run a One Step Update as reported in this morning's alert here?

    Thank you!

    Already have. It was my understanding that Quicken would not start if I did not approve the update. Is that not correct?

    Yes.  That is not correct.  Quicken should start when you do not approve the update.
