      I did read the article. I was just reporting back and awaiting an engine update. As I said, I have no problem with disk space but others might not take the time to read ghacks and may need to know if they can delete 🙂

      I’m seeing 1500 files totaling  11Mb

      Engine Version: 1.1.18100.5

      Should I delete the files in the folder or await an engine update (I’m not short of disk space)

      Several currency options, can’t help with tax questions! Here’s a link to the user manuals in various languages (including both UK and US English)

      I agree. Although I’m still using Quicken I have road tested KMyMoney and consider it a viable alternative.

      Exactly as you say. Original disk, CD/DVD drive install, no compatibility mode set, just ran it and it worked. Phew!

      Can’t give you any more info as you’re using a newer version.

      Good luck!

      I have an original Quicken disk and was very pleased when it installed and read my old files (copied over from W7) with no issues. If you don’t have a disk for your version, depending which country you’re in, you may be able to obtain/download one online, though I can’t say whether your old files will transfer or if you might have to rebuild some accounts?

      I’m testing https://kmymoney.org/ as replacement for Quicken and so far impressed with it.

      So – last week I installed KB5000802 via Windows update, now running 20H2 v.19042.867

      Print tests successful on ancient Canon MG6400 printer and CutePDF app (both type 3

      Optional KB5001649 offered but not installed. So far, so good.

      I’m still using Quicken 2001 !! Fresh installs on both W10 1909 and 20H2 with no problems so far (fingers & toes crossed). I’m happy entering data manually so have never used online account sync.

      Just in case, I’ve parallel tested KMyMoney, which I would be happy to use if I ever lost Quicken. I believe there are online banking options, and you can import QIF files (though there may be initial reconciliation issues if you have interconnected accounts).

      Yes, that’s why I have Pro not Home. I prefer to be in charge as much as possible!

      Despite having notification unticked in Settings, the nag screen popped up again this week (after installing December cumulative update). I’m hoping I am now rid of it by following this link

      https://windowsreport.com/disable-get-more-prompt-windows-10/

      which describes how to add the suggested registry items (which were missing in my registry)

      Two Dell machines, both 1909 Pro. Feature updates set t0 360 on both. Registry settings as advised by PKCano.

      May cumulative update plus .NET update downloaded and installed.

      No issues or other offerings as yet.

      One Dell desktop and one Dell laptop both backed up, cloned and updated with KB4549951 this afternoon. So far, so good.
