Importing 2002 TaxCut into 2003 TT

I have an email from Intuit that says they have fixed the problem with
importing 2002 TaxCut into 2003 TT and that it will be included in the
update to be released 'shortly'.

I did not get the e-mail but saw it posted on the Intuit site. I could
not transfer my TaxCut to TTAX either.

I hope I can count on that. I purchased TaxCut Premium and tried to update it to
a non-internet connected machine (less hacker-worry.)

Guess what? TaxCut 2003 Premium's offline update bombs with the error

Could not initialize installation. File size expected=16931913, size
returned=13511528. The handle is invalid.

Yes, yes, I downloaded the file several times from
ftp://ftp.taxcut.com/pub/tcdownload/2003/
where even the FTP server agrees 13511528 bytes is the correct size. The error
is saying the updater is of the wrong file size.

So I went out and bought TurboTax since TaxCut support does not understand that
some developer put the wrong file size check in the TaxCut 2003 Update Launcher.

And now I cannot import last years TaxCut data into TurboTax.

I guess it is time to get out the pencil and paper. Does anyone know if I can
deduct the cost of flawed tax preparation software as a business loss? Staples
won't take back either the TurboTax or TaxCut because of copyright laws. Well,
duh, yes I opened them and no I don';t want to exchange them for the exact same
title.

See the Staples manager. He should supply you with url for returning
defective product (your say so) to manufacturer. I did that last year and
got my refund from manufacturer but lost the URL.

PS I now try to buy software if possible from Costco since they have never
given me a "no".

Thanks for the tips! TaxCut also replied with instructions for returning the
product by mail.

TurboTax won't work at all. I dual boot Linux. AFAIK, TurboTax will not install
when C: is not Drive 0. It must be the activation trick needs to write to unused
sectors and is afraid to do that when a boot manager is found. Anyway I get
errors about unable to install correct file versions.

So I will see the manager about getting a refund for TurboTax. Golly this all
just stinks.

I dual boot Linux and XP on all 8 of my machines. My main machine has Linux
installed as Drive 0; XP as Drive 1. TT03 installs just fine. No
activation on TT03. Must be some other problem you have.

I will try again on TT. BTW, that TaxCut Update is now the right size 16,931,913
bytes as stored on the FTP server. So at least I was not completely nuts!

I don't have a dual boot machine. I run Windows 98SE. I installed TT
on Drive G with no problems, except that it will not import 2002 TaxCut
data.

Try using TweakUI from MS, and under the my computer tab set your
program files to another drive.
