    Hi @plao ,

    There is no upgrade path from 2017 to Quicken Subscription without problems.

    See this procedure to uninstall 2017:  https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7731283/installing-reinstalling-and-upgrading-to-windows-quicken-2017-versions-procedural-adjustment

    Do bot reinstall Quicken 2017.

    After running CCleaner Free, go to:  https://www.quicken.com/activate

    Select / Click I'm a new Quicken member.
    If Windows, click Download for Windows. Save it then right-click and click Run as administrator.

    If you are going to be using a Data File Password, you will need to reinstall Quicken using this procedure:  https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7844658/installing-reinstalling-windows-quicken-subscription-editions

    Why? There is a Quicken Activation Server Bug, that you will see if you are going to use a Data File Password..

    Questions?

    Thanks for the help. I’ll wait till my 2017 quicken expires at the end of the month before installing 2019. Thanks again

    Don't wait. You don't want to encounter install problems (they're few and far between, but non-zero) and get caught flat footed with no Q.
