In this post, we’ll discuss “How can we Upgrade to the Latest Version of Quicken?”. After the release of Quicken 2018, Quicken Inc. launched its products in Membership program of 1 year and 2 years.
First we need to differentiate the difference between Quicken Version, Upgrade, and Update.
Version: Quicken version is a complete version that you purchased and installed it to the computer. For Eg: Quicken 2017 Deluxe for Windows is a version of Quicken
Upgrade: When you go from one version to another Quicken version. For Eg: You have Quicken 2017 Deluxe and you purchased and installed Quicken 2018 Deluxe it means you upgrade your Quicken software
Update: When you’re on the same version but installing the latest release or patch. For Eg: You’re using Quicken 2017 Deluxe and you install the latest patch to improve its functionality etc.
Note: We recommend you to create a backup before upgrade to a latest version of Quicken.
