The installation does backup your Quicken 2016 file, so if something did go wrong you can always reinstall the older version and open up the saved file.
I didn’t have to fuss about license keys or anything like that during the installation, although I did need to enter my “Intuit ID” to register.
Although Quicken 2017 is largely a refresh of the user interface to a more modern style, if you use Quicken 2015 there are more reasons to upgrade.
I upgraded because I wanted to review it and because the newer version should have better ongoing support.
Now I think my data file is pretty big at 128MB as I have transactions going back to 2009, but it imported everything without any problems and I had no issues starting up Quicken afterwards.
The file format hasn’t changed at all since I was able to load my new Quicken 2017 file into Quicken 2016 without any problems.
I use the investing features which are only available with Quicken Premier so that’s the only version I’m interested in.
Quicken have a promotion for the same price until the end of the month.So here’s my Quicken 2017 review with my thoughts about the latest version.I’ve also updated my Income Portfolio Morningstar X-Ray and Credit Score too.You can protect the Quicken data file using a password.This means you can only open the file after entering the password.
