HELP - Quicken for Windows 7 Solution - doesn't download transactions.
Yes I am a Win 7 holdout and just learned (ignorance was bliss) that Quicken has big problems on Win 7. The problem for me manifests in downloading transactions from banks/brokerages - it doesnt work.
Quicken Support tells me that the only solution is to upgrade my computer to Win 10 or newer. I am deathly afraid of that and dont want to spend the money upgrading all my other software that works fine on Win 7.
I do have a Mac also, but they say that transferring my Win 7 Quicken file to Mac is rife with all sorts of problems - support guarantees that I will get countless duplicates. Anyway I am so overwhelmingly frustrated as I have a huge time/life investment in my Quicken accounting. I am wondering what people think about the following idea.
IS it possible to make a totally separate partition on my existing PC and run Win 10 or Win 11 on this totally separate partition. I have tons of room on my hard drives. This way I could keep my Win 7 to run everything but Quicken, that currently runs perfectly and then I could run my Quicken on the new partition? Does anyone have any thoughts, experience or ideas about this or otherwise? Has anyone tried this and can you share how to do this? Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks
