    As long as the Surface Pro runs a full version of Windows 7 or newer.  Some early Surfaces ran Windows RT which Quicken can not run on.

    PS  You are probably going to need to use a mouse with it since Quicken is not very touch screen friendly.

    Great question.  While I cannot say definitively, I believe you should be able to as long as it's running windows 8/10 Home edition or higher and has adequate storage space.  You cannot and should not run Quicken networked, so as long as you can store locally, it should work.

    I have a Surface Pro and Quicken works great on it.  Never had any issues.  The response time is fast, the screen resolution is crystal clear.  It has a slot for an SD card and that is where I backup Quicken files to.  It's best to use a mouse for Quicken.  It does work with the touch screen, but for me it is faster using a mouse.

    I have been running Quicken on a Surface Pro 2 for four years.  No compatibility issues, ever.  I have a docking station connected to a standard monitor, which is very useful in seeing the full width of the registers without scrolling, since the SP2 screen is not wide enough.  As long as you are running a compatible version of Windows, everything should be OK.  (Note: RT is not a compatible version).
