If you have a computer without a CD drive, and you purchased Quicken on CD or have an old copy of Quicken on CD you'd like to install, you can save the content of the CD to a flash/thumb/USB drive, then install Quicken from that USB drive.  

Note: You will need access to a computer with a CD drive to complete this process.

Step 1: Make a copy of Quicken 

  1. Place the Quicken CD in the computer's CD drive. If you're asked to install Quicken, click No or Cancel.
  2. Click the Windows Start button and select My Computer or Computer.  You should see a CD/DVD drive displayed.
  3. Right-click directly on the CD drive that contains the Quicken CD, then choose Copy.  
  4. Close the windows you have open so you can get back to your desktop.  Right-click on your desktop, choose New > Folder.  You can rename the folder if you'd like, but it's not necessary.
  5. Right-click on the new folder and choose Paste.  This will move the files from your clipboard to your new folder.

 

Step 2: Copy Quicken to a USB/Thumb Drive

  1. Insert your USB thumb drive in a USB port on your computer.  
  2. Right-click on the new folder you've just created and choose Copy.
  3. Click the Windows Start button and select My Computer or Computer.  You should see a USB drive displayed.
  4. Right-click directly on the USB drive, then choose Paste.  When complete, the Quicken install files will be in your thumb drive and ready for transport.
  5. Remove your USB drive.

 

Step 3: Copy Quicken from the USB/Thumb drive to your new computer

  1. Insert your USB thumb/flash drive into a USB port in the computer. 
  2. Click the Windows Start button and select My Computer or Computer.  You should see a USB drive displayed.

  4. Right-click the new folder and choose Copy.
  5. Close the windows you have open so you can get back to your desktop.
