Can I install or use Quicken on a network?

Updated: 4/08/2014 | Article ID: GEN82038

Learn about installing and using Quicken over a shared network.

Quicken is not designed to be used over a network or shared drive.  Due to the many possible network configurations, Intuit does not offer technical assistance this type of configuration.

Quicken incrementally saves your data as it is entered.   Save and access Quicken data files stored locally (directly on your computer's hard drive) and not over a network to decrease the risk of data loss.  Network instability or the use of a single data file by multiple people at the same time will often lead to data integrity issues.

For optimal performance, install Quicken on each computer your data file is accessed.  If you'd like some help, check out Installing Quicken on Multiple Computers.
