Home Quicken for Windows Installing and Updating (Windows)

I like 2016 Home & Business

I like 2016 just how it is, and don't want to "update" but now with the downloading feature disabled the software is severely crippled.
Is there anyway to re-enable the financial institution downloading without updating or paying an arm and a leg? I don't need any of the other garbage that comes with a subscription and don't need any feature not already part of the software I own and paid for.

    BTW, you bought a license to use Quicken 2016, you do not own the software, if you did, you would have the source code and could have a programmer change it to do whatever you wanted.

    I wish! If only Quicken would follow the Asus router software model. Asus allows much of the code to be open source, keeping proprietary code secret but distributable as binary blobs. So a programmer can fix bugs in the open source parts and rebuild.
