Update: As of April 11, 2017, Microsoft has discontinued support for Windows Vista. This includes security updates that protect users' information. Due to this change, we will no longer support the use of Quicken on Windows Vista. While Quicken may still function on Windows Vista without issue, we cannot provide assistance if a problem occurs. We strongly urge to upgrade to a more secure and supported version of Windows, such as Windows 7 or higher.
