Duff-Man is correct. This has been highly publicized and well known for a while now. It is rumored that Apple is working with Intuit and building the Rosetta parts needed to run on Lion directly into the Quicken application. If Quicken wasn't too lazy to make a decent application for the Mac OS they wouldn't be in this mess. The best thing people could do would be to just stop using Quicken. If they felt it in their wallets they might get the message but I doubt it.

I would highly recommend checking the compatibility of your apps before any major OS upgrade on any operating system.

Old thread i know, but i am just now looking at upgrading ti Lion. So has there been any movement on getting an updated version of quicken, or is there a program (like quicken) that does run on Lion that i can change too.
