    From what I've heard/read, Snow Leopard is suppose to stop supporting Rosetta?

    As bad as Quicken 2007 is on the mac I still use it because I have not found another program that I feel comfortable with.

    Will Quicken 2007 still work on Snow Leopard when it comes out? Thanks

    Rosetta is an optional install.
    also when you click on any PPC app in SL it will prompt you to install Rosetta.

    Strangely enough, SL insists on installing Rosetta when you attempt to install Office 2008, which is Universal Binary.

    Quicken 2007 is a PPC app.

    Office 2008 uses some PPC stuff in it. Thats why rosetta pops up.

    You really think Intuit would be that up-to-date with Quicken software for the Mac? :D Quicken 2007 is the only software I have that will require the Rosetta install when I upgrade to Snow Leopard.

    Words cannot express how much Intuit sucks.

    After years of giving us BS updates with barely any new features and basically making us pay for a bug patch, Intuit stopped support for the Mac in all effectiveness. (Quicken 2007 has a copyright date of 2006.)

    Then we get this Quicken Life, because Mac users don't have financial planning and tracking needs. (to say nothing that the average Mac user has higher income and network than the average PC user and spends more on software.)

    That "product" has a disastrous beta. Customers were beyond angry--they were quitting Intuit. Unfortunately for Intuit, the Mac platform has a great and free alternative to their shoddy product--online banking tools from your local bank and companies like Mint.

    To their credit, Intuit acknowledged they screwed-up and totally mis-read the changes in the market, and so we are getting Quicken 2010, which reportedly is some form of Quicken Lite. That is certainly better than the train wreck that was Quicken Life, but given how short of a development and testing timeframe they have, heaven knows how good it will be.

    I understand why people wrote off the Mac platform around 2000/2001. But there has been seismic shifts in the PC industry due to Vista, MS, Open Source, iPod, and Apple executing a quality initiative.

    I hope Quicken 2010 is a solid product and not some idiiotic cover flow app that doesn't track investments. (this is what Intuit wanted to ship. It must have every feature in Quicken 2007 and be refreshed from a code base and UI perspective.)

    And I hope the execs at Intuit see "where the puck is going"--and not where it was in 2000-- and ships Quick 2011 that is on par with Quicken for the PC. If it makes sense for Adobe and Microsoft to follow this strategy--hardly Apple fanboi companies--maybe it makes business sense for Intuit.

    Has anyone had any success installing Quicken 2007 ? I started the install got prompted to install rosetta but then Quicken hangs at '641 items remaining to be installed’

    A search turned up that another person on intuit's quicken blog is having the same problem but no solution :( Then the wikidot list says it should run fine.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    problem solved, I ended up just dragging the whole application from my backup into the fresh install and it seems to be working at the moment.

    The most recently announced edition of Quicken for Mac, Quicken Essentials, will not support investment tracking, TurboTax export or billpay, according to Intuit. It is due in February.

    Yeah....Intuit is pretty much giving Mac users the finger with "Essentials"...it doesn't do much of anything essential.

    Reconciled items not reconciled

    I recently moved my Quicken 2005 data from an older mac to Quicken 2007 on a macbook. All of the data is there, but it does not show that it has been reconciled and so my running balance is a mess. I was going to re-reconcile a couple of months, but it tells me that those months have already been reconciled. Any suggestions?
