Re: Quicken 2009 (yes, that's what I have been using).

I will be getting a new PC with Windows 11. Can I continue to use the 2009 version, which suits me quite well, or will I have to buy the latest Quicken?

    You should at least try to convert to the 2013 version since you don’t use any online services or download transactions now.  Then it should run on newer versions of Windows.  Starting in 2014 they instituted an ID password to get into your own data. I’m staying on 2013.

    You can download 2013 Deluxe for free using this how to convert article.  It’s under Converting from Quicken 2004-2009. 

    If your version is 2003 or earlier you will need to first convert to 2004.  Then convert to 2013.  Read that whole article on converting.

    And FYI - If your Quicken was before 2010 you should have several files making up the data.

    The main data file ends in .QDF.  All Quicken versions prior to QW2010 store your data in a series of files all sharing the same filename but with different extensions like  - .QDF .IDX, .QEL, .QPH  and all 4 of those files were rolled into a single-file .QDF starting in 2010. 

    I'm staying on Quicken 2013 Premier for Windows.

    Just to answer the original question, I see no reason one can't use Quicken 2009 on a new computer/Windows 11 even though I have not tried it myself.  That is provided you still have the install for it.

    Note in both using Quicken 2009 or 2013 you will want to install the latest patch version after the install you can find them at my site:
