and i thougt if i bought, paid for, registered, and leagly used a program that it should not expire ? started quicken to night and got a message that i have until 4-19-2005 to upgrade. if i dont i will not be able to download or send any transactions.
now to put this in perspective i have used quicken since 1993 ( even beta test rubacon for intuit in 1997 ) now i get this link and some B.S> about cuting down on tech suport for older programs.
i dont remember the last time i needed to call tech suport on Q02
just know if i have to buy Q 2005 i will call every time it down loads too slow...
sorry, checked to see if it came up on new post and didnt see it - so i bumped
guess it wont show on last ten post page, bummer just like to let as many see this as possable
i agree with you as i also believe in software as property and when you sell it to someone you sell to only one person. and that if you sell a pc it has a blank drive or at most a copy of command.com from DR.DOS only
Damn, I didn't know about this one. I started using 2004 version last year and was pretty happy with it so far. From what I am hearing, you might want to avoind 2005 version for a while, since it only allows the new file format (qfx) while the 2004 allows the new and the old one.Originally Posted by lawrence
thx for the info on the file types lots of archives - 10 years worth
i would just hate to have to switch to a MS product.
