So how do I get a registration number to complete my work
try installing it and then going to help / unlock again.

also help / about will tell me exactly what version it is.

But its going to be difficult because thats a very old program and quicken no longer supports it and they may not have any way to register it anymore.

You may have to buy the new version and try to move your data

this page has intermediate versions that you can download for just that purpose and the version 6 under windows may work long enough to get you through what you want to do with your old data and it may not need a registration key

Tried to reinstall but it wants a registration number. Also found v7 but it too wants registration

I think you may have to talk to quicken directly


go to this link

put in quicken for windows

then put in 2012 if you put in an older version it will just tell you its not supported

then customer service

then unlocking features


then hit the live chat button that shows up on the bottom
