Installing Quicken 2008 on a desktop and a laptop


A

ANDYA

According to the licence agreement Quicken 2008 H&B Canadian cn be
installed on two computers per household. Is it necessary to re-
register each time. Also will there be a problem if I purchase a new
machine (a laptop) and remove the program from one of the previous
machines and install it on my new laptop?
Can Quicken be used to download quotes and banking information to the
laptop from a location other than my home?
Thank You
Andrew

I'm using the US version of Quicken 2008 H&B but hopefully the same
information applies to the Canadian version....

I have 2 laptops. I have installed Q on both machines. I do recall having to
register the program on both machines but registering Q is not a big deal.
Just use the same ID & password on both machines.

When I switched laptops I just copied the entire folder that contained my
quicken data to the other laptop and used the File>>open command to find the
Q files.

As for using the laptop from a location other than home....as long as you
have an internet connection you can update the Q files on your laptop.
That's the beauty of having a laptop.

I think you can avoid the full registration process (and it
shouldn't be needed since you did it once already).

In the Online Menu, hold down CTRL+SHIFT and click "One Step
Update". Quicken should popup a message saying you'll no longer
be asked to register.

I discovered that registering on the laptop after registering on the
desktop was not necessary. I was able to update on the laptop with no
problem
I am sharing the same file on a network so maybe that is the reason

Just be aware that Q is not supported to be run on a network so make
frequent backups just in case something goes wrong.
