Which version of Quicken is compatible with Windows 8?

My new H.P. has Windows 8. Will my Quicken 2012 and all its files work in my new system?

YES,  Quicken 2012 will work just fine running on the Windows 8, operating system.

Do know though, that only Quicken 2013 is recommended by -Intuit- to be run on Windows 8.


Quicken 2013:
Operating System Windows XP SP2+, Vista, Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit) / Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit)

Quicken 2012:
Works with Windows XP SP2 or SP3, Vista, Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit). Windows 8 is not recommended for this product. If you are running Windows 8, please upgrade your Quicken software.

Trivia:   Many programs designed for Windows 3.1 (released in 1992) will actually run on Windows 8 without issue.

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.
