#Install Quicken
$url = "https://download.quicken.com/windows/Quicken.exe?_ics=1659059472006&irclickid=~atvCY4Xtdu.jh-70USNDCxsjkab9ZOGDxwqgfa8Z"
$dest = "C:\temp\Quicken.exe"
Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $url -OutFile $dest -verbose
start-process C:\temp\Quicken.exe -verb runas -verbose -wait

I've tried -ArgumentList "/s /silent /quiet /qn" and nothing seems to work...

    Why is a "silent install" important to you?  You only install it once.
    And, this sounds more like a Powershell issue than a Q issue. Do they have a forum where you can ask?

    There is no rule that says the Quicken has to have a silent install.

    It's a part of an automated script I use for new PC setups at my work. It's not a Powershell issue. Quicken must not have added the ArgumentList to the exe.

    I didn't claim they needed to have a silent install. Seeing how large Quicken is, I thought they would have programmed something as simple as a silent install for quick installations... My fault for overestimated them. But why are you obtuse, Chris_QPW?

    And WHY would you be installing multiple PCs at work with Quicken -
    since the Quicken QDF data file can't be shared as in a networked world - and is for personal use ?

    Sounds like there might be a violation of the license agreement if there are multiple users and only one license.


    I don't see anything obtuse about it.  Quicken is intended for personal use, they have no reason to spend time on a feature that is outside of that use case.  And BTW Quicken Inc isn't that big of a company, but in reality, it doesn't matter.  The same was true when Intuit owned Quicken.
