Installing 2 versions of Quicken (US and Canadian) on same computer

Can Quicken Premier 2011 (U.S. version) and Quicken Home and Business 2011 (Canadian version) be installed on the same computer.  I have seen references that you hold the control and shift keys down together while selecting the first “Next” button, but in 2011 you can’t even get that far.  Quicken 2011 first does a check and displays a pop up with the following message, “In order to continue your installation of Quicken you will need to manually uninstall the version that is already installed.”  Does any one know how to install multiple versions of Quicken when 2011 is involved?

You're both wrong if you think you can't have multiple versions of Quicken installed along with Q2011. I have Q2002, Q2004, Q2005, Q2009, Q2010 and Q2011 installed on the same pc ... and Q2011 was installed last.

But it has never been possible to have the same version of Quicken (ie, Q2011) installed more than once on the same pc.  

The option not to uninstall different (year) versions during the install process is working as designed.

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.
