I don't want to register Quicken 2003 - and want to get rid of these nagging
screens. Anyone know how?

In some applications you can tell it that you want to
register by snail mail; print out the form and then
throw it away. In some applications that will fix the
nags. I do not know if it will happen in Quicken
though.

In Q2002 (and several earlier versions) there is an entry in one of
Quickens .ini files. I don't recall the name or what I changed the
value to at the moment but if you like, email me and I'll check it
out. I believe it was the .ini file in c:\windows and once you have it
open it should be pretty obvious.

I may be wrong, but if you don't register, I don't think you can download or
use Quicken's online features. (Unless that registry change suggested by
the previous responder fools the program into thinking it's registered.) If
you don't use any online features, that shouldn't matter, however.

That would be my guess as well.

It is not a registry change.

I actually stumbled on to it when I installed onto a new PC and found
that the version I was using was no longer supported and the
registration process insisted I upgrade. Hence the registration flag
would never get set and Quicken continued to attempt registration on
every startup.

Is there a way around this? I found the Quicken.ini file in the Windows
folder - but changing the values under [Registration] didn't do anything I
could notice.

I saw that file too. How about RENAMING the quicken.ini file. Then copy that
file and Rename it again Quicken.ini.
Then delete that whole section at the end about Registration.

See whether that gets rid of the pop-up nag. It should.

If any problems with running quicken then, just take the renamed file and
call it quicken.ini again.

It is worth a try.

I registered so I cannot try it on my own.

Post results please.

What am I missing? If I do what you say, it's the same as deleting the
Registration section - yes? If so, I already tried that - and Quicken put
it back in.

Tried this - but it didn't work. It's as if I did nothing (Ctl>Alt).
