Hello All,
I have years of financial data created using Quicken 6. I would like to load Q6 on my Dell laptop but the installation disks are 3.5” floppies and the laptop doesn’t have a floppy drive, so how can I load Q6 on my laptop?
Failing that, does anyone know if the latest Quicken 2009 is compatible with Q6?

Quicken 2006 is compatible with XP. doesn't say anything about Vista

The little snippet from this book say no. You have to convert the files

I could not find my Q6 disk for a several years and after finding that the files from Q6 could not be used with later Quicken Editions, I also had to find a way to transfer Q6 from computer to computer without using the disk to install it.

What I have done several times over the years is just copied the entire Q6 folder and the Quicken flies that were in the Windows directory to a CD (flash drive would also work) and then copied them onto the computer I wanted to use it on. When going from Win98SE to XP I was not sure if the Windows files needed to be in just the main Windows folder or in the System32 folder so I put them in both.

The Windows files it needs are....
