Error Message: Please Check Internet Connection & Try Again

craig_yen Member ✭✭

This error message occurs with Quicken 2024 on a Windows 2011 Computer. Quicken will not run with this error. However, Quicken 2023 did run with Windows 11 without error. Further, Quicken 2024 does run without error on a Windows 2010 computer. Quicken's Technical Support was unable to resolve the error problem, after about 2 hours on the phone. One Tech Support person said that the error is not a Quicken issue and that it is another software or hardware problem. In considering the facts, logic would state otherwise.

    Corrections to my previous posting: Windows 2011 should have said Windows 11 and Windows 2010 should have said Windows 10.😁

    If you are getting "Oops, something went wrong" or "Check Internet Connection" …

    • Your browser must allow popups from for chat/phone support selections to function. See
    • To make sure that Quicken is allowed to update and save its configuration files please check if Windows Defender Controlled Folder Access feature Ransomware protection is enabled.
      If it is, configure it to add Quicken as an "allowed app" without turning off Ransomware protection. Perform the last step in
    • Have you recently enabled a VPN?
      If so, this might be the problem. Try turning the VPN off, reboot with VPN disabled and see if that helps.
    • Is there a corporate or otherwise external firewall getting in the way? Contact the IT people maintaining the firewall and ask for permission.
    • If you're running Quicken and Windows under a VM, ensure that the VM does not block any incoming or outgoing IP ports.
    • Does your Antivirus software allow Quicken to connect to the Internet?
      Quicken needs to be able to establish outbound Internet connections for the program to work.
      For example, in McAfee Firewall, one user states "By editing the Quicken Firewall entry Selecting Incoming and Outgoing, and changing it from "Default" to "Open to all devices" it now works without having to turn off the entire firewall!"
      See Check your firewall settings and ensure the following three entries are present, pointing to the Program Files folder that you actually installed Quicken in:

      If necessary, contact the Antivirus / Firewall vendor's Support Center for assistance.
    • In Windows 11 or older Windows systems go to Windows Control Panel and select Internet Options (or in Internet Explorer, click on Tools / Internet options.)
      Click the Advanced tab.
      Scroll down the list to "Use TLS 1.x" and click to put checkmarks on all available choices even though some of them are no longer supported: "Use TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 (if available)"
      Turn off "Use SSL 3.0"
      Click Apply. Reboot.
    • If all else fails: Try rebooting your network router. When done reboot your PC
    • Please let us know which of the above solved your problem.
