Using older Quicken on Windows 7 machine. Can I upload data to new Quicken on Windows 10?

I have years of older Quicken on a Windows 7 machine. We've just ordered a Windows 10 machine and would like to continue with Quicken, but only if we can upload our current older Quicken data to the newer Quicken offerings for Windows 10. We don't want to start all over...

  • Thank you for your replies! We are using Quicken 2016 on a Windows 7 machine. We have ordered a Windows 10 machine. Can we port the software and the data from our Windows 7 machine to a Windows 10 machine? If not, if we purchase a newer version of Quicken can we port our data from the Quicken 2016 on Windows 7 into a newer version of Quicken on Windows 10?? Thanks so much. We love Quicken and don't want to loose the data, but don't want to spend any more than we have to. :smile:

    You should be able to install 2016 on the new computer.  Programs have to be installed like from the CD.  You can't move or transfer programs.  How did you install 2016 originally?  After you install 2016 you will need to update it.  One of the SuperUsers has posted the update patches for older versions (2000 and newer) of Quicken
