roll back to earlier version

I upgraded early to 2014 after I reinstalled my OS (usually I would have wated the full 3 years) and imported my files, but I truly dislike having to process the downloads through Intuit. Can I roll back to 2012?

I'm not clear on what you mean by processing downloads thru Intuit. Downloads of your financial data come from your financial institutions under Quicken control as it always does. What do you find different?

I don't know what you mean by downloading manually, or an Intuit id. I do nothing different than I did in v2011: supply the same username and password for the financial institution that I use when logging on directly to their website. I have all this set up in the Password Vault so the only password I'm giving is the vault password, nothing else. I do all the downloading thru One Step Update. Is that what you are trying to do? It hasn't changed from what I can see.

I noticed that too this morning, I was notified of an update to Q2014,
so I downloaded and installed it. Was also prompted I needed to restart
my computer to complete the update - something new as well.

After updating, when I went to download manually from my banks' website,
I was prompted to enter my Quicken ID Password, and had to do so in
order to download. In all the years I have been doing this, this was the
first time I had to enter my Quicken ID password to get a manual update
from my bank directly into Quicken...

There has been much ignorant handwringing about this.

The fact is that - as of Q2014 - you must have an Intuit ID to download to
Quicken. Many Quicken users already had such an ID before Q2014 was
released.

The Intuit ID does not provide Intuit with any access to your data that it
did not already have. There is no additional "routing through Intuit" that
did not exist before.

The only "problem" is basically one of a slight new inconvenience ... that
is, having to provide the ID to every Quicken file to which you want to
download.

So far I have only had to supply the Quicken ID password the one time
yesterday, when downloading manually this morning it did not prompt me
again.

As designed.

If the Intuit ID is stored in the password vault, you only have to supply
the ID one time (so Quicken can store it in the password vault) for each
Quicken file you have. If you create a new Quicken file, you will have to
supply the Intuit ID to that file.

What's new is that now I'm required to sign in with an Intuit ID,
which I do not have and never had to use under 2012. As I recall,

Are you sure that this is really required?

Recently Quicken 2012 started prompting my "Quicken needs you to enter
your Quicken.com user name and password. Would you like to do that
now?". Selecting "No" allowed the updates to continue.

I later found that the "Investing.Quicken.com" check box (bottom of
One Step Update Settings window) was checked. Unchecking that box
made the quicken.com username/password question go away permanently.

This occurred with a fresh installation of Quicken 2012 Deluxe R7 in a
fresh Windows 7 installation.

Is it possible this is the problem people are seeing in Quicken 2014?

I've been considering going to Quicken 2014 with the hope that more
bugs in 2012 are fixed than new bugs introduced. I don't have and
don't want a Quicken/Intuit password to keep track of.

He's probably referring to the new requirement for Intuit account
credentials in order to process downloads.

Which was exactly the complaint I was addressing.

The requirement to provide your Intuit Id does not change ANYTHING about
what Intuit has access to.

Personally, I find it inconvenient to be required to provide my Intuit ID
.... but that is the extent of my problem with doing so.

And since there is no indication that Intuit will change their policy about
providing the Intuit ID: the subject is probably a dead end.

But, if you want to register a complaint, you can do so at:
