Reverting to older version

I worked with support last week to revert to an older release version, updated all the split transaction info, and when I opened Quicken you reinstalled the latest version without prompt and reintroduced the problem. How can I revert back to the prior version. I cannot find the patch your support team gave me to restore to the December 45.21 release which is the latest version without the 10 limit to split transaction bug.

    UAC? What is this and where do you set it? Also, how do I revert back to the prior update before 46.12 when I lost the ability to post scheduled transactions for loans? Thanks

    UAC? It's a Windows thing: User Access Control. Check out https://community.quicken.com/discussion/comment/20332542#Comment_20332542. I am not a Windows user. Prior updates are at https://www.quicknperlwiz.com/quicken-subscription-patches.html.

    For us Linux/Crossover Office/Wine users, UAC doesn't help. I am playing around with temporarily removing Modify permissions on the ~/.cxoffice/<Quicken_Bottle_Name>/drive_c/Program Files/Quicken directory to see if that flat-out stops an update of the program.

    There is way to tell Quicken not to automatically update the program. My program never auto updated unless I clicked the install update button when it popped up.
    I tried to find the setting but as I have not renewed my subscription a number of dialog boxes won't present data and the online login window keeps getting in my face.. It's in there somewhere...

    Why are you posting here if you no longer use Quicken (per your sig).

    Private User, maybe you last ran a pre-subscription version of Quicken? Before Quicken Subscription, yes, users controlled if and when updates were made. However, with Subscription, updates are pretty much forced down (or the way to turn updates off is a well-guarded secret).

    It also occurs to me that, given the severity of the lost-splits issue and the number of users affected, maybe Quicken has withdrawn the 46.xx updates. So far, I am running 44.28 just fine.

    UAC setting does not stop Quicken from auto updating.  We need the ability for some of us to sit back and watch rather then routinely encountering problems that are inherent in software updates. 

    Please!
