Quicken 2007 wont install on Snow Leopard
I have had Quicken 2003 forever, but now on Mountain cannot use it because Rosetta is gone.
Quicken said if I get a an old copy of 2007, and transfer over the database then I could upgrade that to a Quicken 2010 Mountain version. (They said 2003 just wont copy direct to 2010, but 2003 to 2007 could then transfer to 2010.

I got an old copy of 2007 on ebay, but when I go to install it searches Snow Leopard, then searches my other drives and nothing happens. Stumped. thanks.

Are you sure your version of Quicken can run on Lion? Or do you have the PPC version?

Have not bought the Lion version yet. First need to transfer the 2003 database to 2007 software.

So am I right you are trying to use a PPC version of the software on an Intel machine? If so, isn't that the issue right there?
jeff k Jan 10, 2013 11:20 AM
Ah it that it? wont work even if I'm booting into the correct OS for the time, Snow Leopard?
Here is the deal: Quicken 2003 was on PPC, then I went to 27" imac, rosetta took over. I went to Mountain and rosetta gone.

I called Quicken (Indian guy), he said 2003 database wont transfer to Mountain, but if I get an old copy of 2005, 2006 or 2007, then I can do the transfer to get the database code correct. (those years transfer data to mountain ok) From there I can transfer that database to Quicken 2010.

But you are saying I will never be able to achive that becuase I can't install now an old copy because, per force all old copies are not intel able to install?

Am I screwed? any ideas??? thanks

( or I have to get someone who has an old copy and an old software to do the transfer?)

PS WHILE I was booted into the snow HD I pulled out a 10 year old software, Final DRaft, way pre intel and it installed fine. forgot to mention. I did that to make sure the hardrive was ok and installing ok, yes that was a pre intel software. not sure matters, maybe Quicken coded theirs different?

Do you still have a PPC? If so, install quicken 2007 on that, upgrade database, then take to imac with mountain.

If you can't find one, I have a working pPC at home but no quicken.

Andi, thanks, yeah, I sold the g5, and then the old laptop. So I'll PM you, maybe you can help.
jeff k Jan 11, 2013 11:58 AM
Andi, did you get my replies on the PM? There is no reply button there! I think I click forward. But that guy/seller says he has no machine, so I'd like to take you up on offer to help. thanks!
