Until April ***2014***, I believe.
That's my impression as well.

Regardless, I certainly hope Windows XP support continues until Microsoft
comes up with something better than Windows 8. Geesh, what a fiasco that
is.

I'm hoping that, too. Rumour has it that the next OS is coming out
in very late 2013 or first half of 2014.

Odds are, I'd assume the 'desktop' would be even more hidden and
restricted in Win9. The push will be the 'Metro' interface along with
Apple-style control as to what you can put on your computer.

i have been advisd to stop entering data into this program as it is obsolete

and cannot be switched to windows xp. i also have quickbooks in my computer

but it is to complicated. i bought quickbooks in 1997 and never used it
Am still using Quicken 6 (c1996) in 2013. While it doesn't download transactions from your banks, it does everything else just fine. I'm running Window8 currently, and before that it was fine on Vista and XP. Just make sure you make a one-time adjustment after installing: right-click the startup icon for Quicken6, Properties >> Compatibility mode: Windows-98, also pick 16-bit color.

Cheers

Win7/64, Vista/64 and WinXP/64 can't run DOS programs.

The 32 versions can, albeit I have not tried Win7/32 or Win8/32.
Quicken 8 for DOS runs fine under WinXP/32 and Vista/32.
I have tried Win8/32.

Quicken 8 for DOS works just fine under it.

This DOS emulator was made for old DOS games. It seems to work okay for
other DOS apps as well..

http://dfendreloaded.sourceforge.net/

D-Fend Reloaded is a graphical environment for DOSBox. DOSBox emulates
a complete computer including the DOS commandline and allows to run
nearly all old DOS based games on modern hardware with any of the newer
Windows versions.

With DOSBox there is no need to worry about memory managers or free
conventional RAM, but the setup of DOSBox is still a bit complicated.
The configuration of DOSBox via textbased setup files might be difficult
for beginners. D-Fend Reloaded may help and create these files for you.
Additionally the D-Fend Reloaded installation package contains DOSBox
(including all lanuage files currently available), so there is only one
installation to be run and no need to link D-Fend Reloaded with DOSBox
manually.

Thanx for that. It works for Win7/64 but with a few problems.
* Printing - I don't see how to redirect printing
* Screen display - how to adjust windows size and automatically adjust if using 43 line
mode
* ClipBoard - Can't pass text from Win/64 to DOS Quicken 8

Other than that, it seems to work OK.
