    Hi @evera, for Quicken to run properly on Windows 11 I would recommend that you update to the latest version (R39.23), as this version was released this year, older versions have not been tested on Windows 11 and may not be compatible.  You can learn more and upgrade here :smile:

    Please let me know if you have any further questions!

    You can download Quicken using this link:
    How do I download Quicken from Quicken.com to install or reinstall it?

    I do wonder about something.  I see that this question was posted in the Canadian category.
    Did you want the US or Canadian version?

    Did you make to the Canadian one for the purchase?

    I'm looking at the web pages and they seem all messed up to me, but maybe that is because I'm coming in from the US.
    Here is the main Canadian page:
    https://www.quicken.com/canada/?cc_bypass

    When you look at the Canadian products do you see only Starter, Deluxe, and Home & Business?
    If you see Simplifi and Premier you are on the US website.

    When I select this button on the Canadian site it takes me to the comparison of the US products.

    Then I am on the us side. I have paid with my paypal account for the starter one but did not received any info to download it. I download the program and now want let me use it because it want a product code. I find it to bad that I can not talk to a human it takes way to long. I have been using quicken for years and I like it but I want to transfer my data to the new computer.

    Let me backup, the original question.  Do you have the install for your Quicken 2014?
    If so, there isn't any reason why you can't install it on a Windows 11 machine.
    You should get the latest patch from my website:
    http://www.quicknperlwiz.com/quicken-patches-canadian.html

    Note that even though the latest version of Quicken was recommend for Windows 11, Quicken Inc has yet to official state Quicken is compatible with it.  That doesn't mean it doesn't work, lots of people are using it on Windows 11, but the same "nothing to change for Windows 11" applies to older versions of Quicken too.
    EDIT:  I'm wrong I see that they have now updated the web page for the requirements, and it does state the newest version of Quicken is compatible with Windows 11.  But in fact, Quicken Inc has done nothing to make it compatible, and as such older versions will still work too.
    Quicken System Requirements

    You can get a refund for your purchase in this way:
    Terms and Conditions For Exchanging, Canceling, or Refunding Quicken Products

    And just for the record (after all the mess with the wrong product/sites and stuff) when you purchase the subscription directly from the Quicken website it is supposed to be activated automatically and not use an activation code.  But I believe what is going on is it got activated in a "US section/Quicken Id", and your Quicken Id is Canadian and as such the two aren't connected like they should have been.

    What a royal mess.  I can't believe how terrible that website is.

    It would help to clarify - ALL the different topics you have asked about -
    1 - How to access 2014 Quicken data file ?
    2 - What release of Quicken to use with Win 11
    3 - Actually using Canada vs US version .... which one do you want ?
    4 - Paid for with Paypal - WHERE did you purchase it - and now want to download and use

    Unfortunately - if you start with the CANADA side and click thru the hotlinks - you wind up looking at the US products -
    and maybe even then purchase the US product vs the CANADA product - which is the one you actually started with and want.
    Here is the main Canadian page:

    How can I move Quicken Home and Business 2016 to a new computer? I purchased it in Canada but have now moved to New Zealand so apparently can’t purchase a subscription.

    If you have the install, you can just install it on the other machine.  Be sure to update to the latest patch for your year version of Quicken, which you can get at my site:
    Quicken Patches Canadian - QuicknPerlWiz

    Note, that you can in fact buy a subscription (just using a fake address), but it since Quicken US/Canadian don't support online features for New Zealand you really wouldn't really be getting anything by buying a subscription.
