How to download old versions (specifically R38.30)

Where are old versions available to download from?

I am experiencing the problem well-described here: https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7909964/register-balance-value-incorrect-after-r39-21-update
with R39.21 and have tested against several backups over the past few weeks. As the other author states, I have data going back 29-30 years (Yes! 1992!) and accepting the Validate's "I cleared these for you" is just not an option (and I'd turn from Quicken's biggest fan to their loudest detractor; I do NOT want this, but my fin-data is important to me!)

Where can I download R38.30 (or any other previous version) from so that I can get things working until this is truly fixed?

Thanks

    You can download the historic patches from the link below. Version 38.30 is there.

    I'd prefer a Quicken site rather than a random one that might've injected G-d knows what into an executable... It doesnt make sense to risk granting some random file access to all my financial data. Intuit should have these files available for download, somewhere... (plus, those are Patch files, and since I'm rolling backwards, I'd need a base-install file, not a patch file)

    @D-Two
    That is not a random site. It is maintained by one of the super users who frequents this group.
    If you don't believe me, don't worry, he'll probably be along soon.
    Oh, and Intuit no longer owns Quicken. That split happened years ago.

    If you want R38.30, I suggest you download https://download.quicken.com/windows/Quicken.exe right away,  You may confirm the version is still 27.1.38.30 by checking the Details tab on the file's Properties window.  I suggest you disconnect from the internet before opening the installation program to prevent the installation from downloading and applying a subsequent update. 

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

    @D-Two , The link mentioned earlier is trustworthy as many of us have been using it for years.  I'd bookmark it.

    Quicken Patches - QuicknPerlWiz (and below) are my site, and the patches come directly from this web page when they are available:
    Update and Mondo Patch: Subscription Release of Quicken for Windows (Quicken Inc site)

    But I actually recommend that user save their own copies.

    There are also other "official" ways that "somewhat work" to get patches.
    There is this one that isn't properly maintained:
    Reinstalling and patching your Quicken Subscription version after your membership has expired | Quicken

    And then there is the trick to change the URL given in the download page above for the current Mondo patch.

    They stick a lot of extra on the end of the URL, but the basic one is:
    https://assistant.quicken.com/patch/QW27.1.39.23MPatch.EXE

    If one knows the version number of the patch they want, they can just change the version number in the above URL and should be able to get it, because Quicken Inc doesn't actually delete these off of their site.
    So, for instance, this works:
    https://assistant.quicken.com/patch/QW27.1.38.30MPatch.EXE

    Thanks guys. Was able to revert to 38.30 and use a backup from 03/08 to get all the split-transactions back to what they were. What a pain... near 30 years of data in there that was potentially corrupted from their "helpful" work on paycheck (and other split?) transactions. Disaster reverted/restored...

    Heads up to @Chris_QPW - i tried to download the 38.30 mondo patch from the QuicknPerlWiz page and OneDrive gives a "This item might not exist or is no longer available" for that release. I was able to download it from the later link in your post above.

    anyhow, thanks, all.

    Thanks for letting me know.  Somewhere along the lines I must have removed the share.
    I have fixed it now.
