    But obviously, you're not one of the several people Ken Blake knows, so the
    problem still does not exist.

    Thanks for that citation. The list of bugs (some look quite serious) that
    have been fixed in Q2015 looks quite extensive.

    Some of the issues I've had (that Ken Blake said do not exist because he
    and his friends do not experience them) are on the list, so that's good.

    Also, I see a crash involving One Step Update has been fixed. Maybe that
    is related to the crash that I experience.

    Looks like Q2015 may be worth a try.

    Thanks again for that citation.

  3. Reread what I wrote: "it's *probably* not a matter of fixes making it
    into Quicken 2015." Note the stress I added to the word "probably" in
    this message.

    I was trying to be helpful in suggesting that buying a new version
    *probably* wouldn't help you and might be a waste if money of that
    were the only reason you bought it. If you think I wasn't helpful,
    that's fine with me. You are welcome to ignore what I wrote. But you
    are not welcome to be insulting when you do so. So since you were
    insulting, welcome to my killfile; I'll never try to help you again.

    Interesting list. I like this one in "REGISTER".

    "Quicken keeps asking for password even if user enters wrong password

    So what's the "fix"? To allow access into the Quicken file even if the
    password IS entered incorrectly twice??

    Your attempt to explain away the problems in Quicken, instead of
    acknowledging that they do exist, fails on both technical and logical


    Your attempt to mis-represent Ken Blake's comments is an indication that you
    have more interest in making nasty comments, than in learning the facts,
    much less solving a problem.

    First: you hijacked this discussion - a discussion whose purpose was defined
    by the originator of the discussion ... ie: Ken Blake.

    Then you - insultingly - put words/meanings in Ken's mouth ... which he
    clearly did not say or mean.

    I have Q2014. I can tell you for a fact that many of its reported problems
    do not occur for every user of Q2014.

    If you want to get help with what you believe are Q2014 problems, you first
    need to refrain from hijacking someone else's discussion. Then you need to
    provide objectively verifiable facts that will allow someone else to verify
    that your problems are not limited to you and your particular computer
    environment. Perhaps, at that point, someone can help you find a way around
    your problem.

    And finally: you need to come to grips with the fact that there will be no
    more updates to Q2014 ... so no matter whether there are any bugs in Q2014
    .... you are wasting other's time complaining about them - Q2014 will not be
    fixed. In case you don't grasp the full meaning of that fact, let me spell
    it out: you will be better off if your Q2014 problems are not "bugs" - if
    your problems are not bugs, you may be able to get a workaround for them. If
    they are bugs ... you are stuck with them ... until/unless you upgrade to a
    newer version of Quicken (or whatever other alternative you choose).

    Have you installed Q2015? Just wondering on the improvements for Register - it
    says it can now be sorted by newest transactions first - I like my registers to
    list newest transactions last! Just wondering?

    charliec, Oct 14, 2014

  8. You can sort by newest transactions first *or* last, and you can do
    that with *any* version of Quicken (at least as far back as I can
    remember). Click on the Date header in the register to sort on date,
    then click it again to reverse the sort from ascending to descending
    order, or vice versa.

    By the way, this is a Windows standard and works in many places, such
    as Windows Explorer, the open dialog in most applications, etc.

  10. You're welcome. Glad to help.

    The quote (for others) that charliec referred to is "By popular demand,
    you can now sort your register to have the most recent transactions at
    the top—like your bank and credit card web sites. Running balances still
    work as expected and you can add new transactions without scrolling all
    the way down to the bottom of the page."

    There MUST be something more to it than what Ken rightly says one can do
    simply by clicking on the date header in the register which indeed does
    do a sort in either direction.

    Of course, to be complete, one can click on virtually ANY register
    column header and do a sort (eg: check number, payee, etc.). So I don't
    get what the enhancement does.

    Has anyone else actually installed Q2015 and can comment?

  12. There was lots of discussion about waiting until later, skipping this
    one, my rants about Intuit ID, etc. There were some pointers to
    Intuit's bugs fixed lists, I think I saw 2 on topic postings from
    people who had actually used QW2015, but even those were very brief

    Now that QW2015 has been out for a little longer can people who have
    actually used it give us some useful hands on reviews.

    Is 2015 any better than the previous version you were using (which
    version was that)?

    Does it have any major regressions over your previous version?

    Stuart Barkley, Oct 26, 2014
  13. I upgraded Q Premier 2014 to Q Premiere 2015. I have not found any
    regressions. Intuit has already published the first patch, so this would
    be a good time to update.

    On the other hand, not much has changed, in my usage. There is an offer
    for a free credit report. I don't know if it is any good because I have
    not tried it.

    Quicken has been working very well for me. My only complaint is that
    about 75% of the time, One Step Update will refuse to operate. After I
    launch Internet Explorer, the problem is resolved 100% of the time.
    That problem still exists in Q Premier 2015.

    That is good news. I use Q Deluxe and I normally wait until Q and Turbotax are
    offered as a package. Probably in about a month.

    Moved from Q 14 Dlx to Q 15 Dlx primarily for the reported fix (which works) whereby the Download and Reminder tabs section is collapsed when you land in any account unless there are indeed downloaded transactions. Hallelujah! Nothing adverse experienced.

    Great! I am so tried of those tabs being opened for all accounts - even when
    nothing is due!

    May I ask - where did you get Q 15 and what did you pay for it?
    charliec, Oct 27, 2014
  18. Amazon lowered the price and had a Prime discount, which brought my final price
    to $49.99, so I bought and installed it this evening. Aside from the mandatory
    use of an Intuit ID which I was already doing to download security prices, the
    only thing I don't like is the permanent ad for credit score monitoring in
    bright green they put on the bottom of the account bar. That really pisses me

    There were a few things in the What's New list I was glad to see, but overall
    I'd be hard pressed to see any visual difference compared to QD2014.

    Download from Intuit for $64.99 some weeks ago. At time Amazon & others were more and I do not subscribe to Amazon Prime.
