Made the mistake of buying this to upgrade from a very old version that my wife was used to but was rather idiosyncratic on Windows 7.

The first challenge was that it wouldn't import my data. Had to go to Intuit's website and download an intermediate version to update the data.

Took some time until finally I got my wife up and running with this version. Then we made the ghastly mistake of attempting to synchronize our data with that at Wells Fargo.

Firstly the imported data bore little relation to the data we had been entering in by hand. Charges were oddly classified and it was very difficult to reconcile the duplicates as there were many and the descriptions from WF often made little sense.

So, I decided just to use their data and go forward. My wife struggled with this so we decided to turn off the data synch. Shortly thereafter we found out that WF charges $3 to provide this data in Intuit's proprietary format (evidently that's what Intuit charges them). With the death of MS Money, there are evidently no public domain financial data formats in common use (where is the Justice Dept when you need them?). Turning this $3/month charge off turned into quite a challenge. Several months the charge would appear, we would call them, they would credit it and promise to turn it off, only to return the next month. I'm waiting with baited breath to see if it reappears this month.

After an extended use period with the new Quicken, I've switched my wife over to a spreadsheet based checkbook register program I found on the innerwebs. She's happier as all she wants to do is balance the checkbook and I'm happier as it was free.

How Intuit has managed to gain this stranglehold over the financial management amazes me.

Stay away from Intuit products if you can.
