How To Install Multiple Versions of Quicken Windows on the Same Computer

This is an unsupported process.

Multiple versions of Quicken Windows can be installed and used on the same computer without uninstalling the previous version. If you are installing multiple versions of Quicken the following items should be kept in mind.

  • Each Quicken program version must be installed to a separate folder.
  • The data files for each version should be kept in a separate folder for each version installed.
  • Depending on which versions of Quicken you are installing, some preference settings may be lost when multiple versions are installed.
  • Quicken data files are not interchangeable among different Quicken program versions. Once a data file has been converted to a new program version, it cannot be opened in the older version.
  • The computer must meet the full system requirements for each version being used on the same computer. Make certain there is sufficient hard disk space for each program.
  • Intuit does not support multiple versions of Quicken on the same computer. If you need technical assistance we will uninstall other versions of Quicken prior to troubleshooting your issue.
  1. Start the Quicken installation process from the Quicken CD or download file.
  2. When the first dialog appears, the Installation Welcome Screen, hold down CTRL+SHIFT and click the Next button simultaneously.
  3. A message box will appear saying that the installer will skip checking for uninstall. Click OK.
  4. Accept the License agreement.
  5. Change the name of the default folder to another folder location. This will prevent installing over a previous version of Quicken.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete installation.
