Differences Between a Product Version, Upgrade and Update
These are the differences between a Quicken Version, Upgrade, and Update.
A Quicken version is the full version of Quicken software that you’ve purchased and installed on your system. For example, the Subscription Release of Quicken for Windows Premier is a version of Quicken.
An upgrade is when you go from one version of Quicken to a newer version of Quicken. For example, if you have Quicken for Windows Premier 2017 and you purchase and install the Subscription Release of Quicken for Windows Premier, you have upgraded your Quicken version to the Subscription Release. Once you are on the Subscription Release, you never have to upgrade again.
An update is also called a Release or Patch. Updates improve program functionality and fix known bugs. The latest update to your Quicken program can be obtained from our Quicken Software Update site, free of charge.
