Express Web Connect & Wells Fargo after upgrading Quicken 2012 to Release R3

I'm unable to connect to Wells Fargo using Express web connect... Just upgraded from Quicken 2010 Premier to Quicken 2012. Everything was working fine. Then, I upgraded to Release R3 and my Wells Fargo Bank accounts could not be updated using Express WC.

I've tried deactivating the accts., I've used Web connect, changed my Wells Fargo userID & password, etc. Web connect works fine, but I prefer Express WC.

So I created a blank Quicken data file and tried Express Web connect... I was able to connect & download transactions from all my Wells Fargo accounts (90 days) into newly created Quicken accounts in my NEW Quicken file...

What's the deal? Is Wells Fargo (or Quicken) forcing me to use the $9.95 /month Direct Connect option? Or perhaps there is a bug in the R3 update...

We have resolved some server-side defects that produced a CC-501 with EWC; we have a couple others still Work In Progress to be implemented when code & testing is completed.  To determine if you're experiencing one of these TBD or one of the Resolved that require an additional step on your part, please contact Quicken Support so we can collect the OFX & Connlog files for review to cause & solution of your error.  CC-501 is a catch-all error, that can apply to many internal error codes, some that can be resolved by scripting; Quicken Support can get your case escalated to the appropriate resolving team.

BTW, nobody is forcing Wells Fargo customers to use Direct Connect, which is why we offer the EWC method as an alternative.  HTH.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
