If you are using Quicken 2004 or older you first need to convert the data files while still running in Tiger/Leopard/Snow Leopard:If you are using Quicken for Mac 2004 or before, then you can not use the special 2007 version for Lion. If you can find someone who has an old Mac and can convert the file with Q2005 to that version, then you can migrate all of the way to QFM2007 Lion Version, and then hopefully to QFM2015.
I am running Yosemite with Quicken 2007 for mac with no problems. You need the last upgrade of Quicken that ran on Maverick & Mountain Lion.Has anyone upgraded to Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite
while still using Quicken 2007 for Mac.
Any upgrade problems ???
I am running Q2007 and Q2015 tandem.
That's not completely true. Intuit released an Intel version of Quicken 2007 for Lion a few years back. It cost $15 and was download only. The last patch was in 2013 and Quicken 2007 has been running perfectly under 10.8 and 10.9 for me on both my 2013 Mini and 2009 Mac Pro. I tested it under 10.10 and it ran fine albeit I only used it for 10 minutes.Quicken 2007 is a PPC app. Won't run on Intel chips unless the OS has Rosetta.
It will run on Lion since Lion had Rosetta.
I am running Quicken 2007 on Yosemite with no problem.What I am reading online is not super positive that Quicken 2007 will correctly run on Yosemite. If it runs on Mavericks, wouldn't it run on Yosemite? I downloaded Quicken 2015 and it is a disaster. Not even close to the quality of 2007. All files did not transfer and many aspects I am used to are just not there. I finally uninstalled and resumed with 2007 whose files, thankfully, Quicken 2015 does not mess with. I am running "Quicken Mac 2007 OS X Lion compatible" on Mountain Lion. Until there are better assurances that Quicken 2007 will work with Yosemite, I will have to pass on upgrading. Or maybe a miracle will happen and Intuit will improve 2015 to a respectable level.
Thanks for the input. I got my refund with no problem. If 2007 will run on Yosemite, I am not willing to give up the format and features of it for the upgrade. Why oh why did Intuit see the need to take a good product and strip it down to what came out as 2015? Maybe with some improvements over the next year, 2015 will be worth the move. Right now I advise users to stick with 2007.I am running Quicken 2007 on Yosemite with no problem.
I did download Quicken 2015. My files transferred without any problem.
I am running both versions until I am sure I want to keep 2015.
I agree that 2015 really takes getting use to. I am still in my 60 day trail and not sure if I will keep it. I do like the iOS app so I can look up info when not home.
And from other posts I have read, new users of Quicken 2015 for Mac say this is really an update of Quicken Essentials for Mac and NOT Quicken 2007 for Mac!The link that user primes provided no longer exists, but you can still get this update. Unfortunately, the only method to get the update is to online chat with Quicken (lame I know). Trust me, I just spent and hour and a half doing this. What they are trying to do is upsell you to a more expensive version, and, were it not for this post, I might have bit into it.
