Now that Home Inventory isn't functional on Windows 11, I have disabled the program (renamed) so that it won't startup. My questions is, how can I update the Home Inventory account balance so that my Net Worth amount is more accurate?

    In case you need this info see this article.
    You can then try the following to see if this will install QHI on Windows 11.  (I do not have W11)
    Look for the QuickenHomeInventory.exe ( location on my W10 C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken) right click to get to Properties - click on Compatible tab and make the Program compatible with Windows 10 (If there) or Windows 7.
    Now apply or OK and double click the on this file to run. Open Quicken and see if this will allow you to open QHI within Quicken.
    If not try this. Look for the QHI.exe (location on my W10 is at C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken) and repeat the above change in Compatibility of the file. Now see if this works.
    Do all of this with Quicken closed.
    Please reply back if works or not.

    Unfortunately, I had previously tried these suggestions, and they did not resolve my original problem (QuickenHomeInventory.exe crashes in detail view). Realizing that it wasn’t going to work for me and that it is no longer supported, I moved on to an alternative inventory method outside of Quicken.

    My need now, is the ability to update the balance shown in the Home Inventory Account Register. When I attempt to update that register, it attempts to open QuickenHomeInventory.exe, which is the reason I renamed the program - so that it fails to open. If Quicken no longer supports QuickenHomeInventory, then it seems there should be an alternative method for updating the Home Inventory register balance.

    If you want to list your inventory.
    My only suggestion is to use whatever Inventory software you now have and do an export as a csv and convert it to a QIF and then do an import.
    Before you try it make sure you make a copy of your QDF file in case something goes wrong.
    You will have to add a New Account and when you do is to pick Other Assets & Liabilities - Non Cash Assets and then name it to whatever you desire.
    Today's Date - Asset Value - Loan Asset say NO. Becomes an Opening Balance.
    Then do an import of QIF and pick the Asset name you added to Quicken so that the QIF goes into the correct account.
    It will be a trial and error.
    You can do the above but skip the import of the QIF and just use the total amount that your Inventory software shows.
    Note: I use Attic Manager as an alternative to QHI even though QHI still works.
