old geezer .... Yes, Quicken 2010 will run on Windows 8. Of course, there very well
could be issues in regard to printing, sounds, etc.. Also, do know
that only Quicken 2013 is supported by Intuit in regard to Windows 8.
do plan to live another 5 years or more 8-) , consider the issue of
getting Quicken 2010 to install and work correctly with future computers
you buy / computers with an even newer operating systems on them. I
suggest that you do yourself a favor and buy Quicken 2013
which --will easily convert your Quicken 2010 data file. -- With
Quicken 2013 you will have moved to current, supported software that
will better serve you and software that your financial record keeping /
your finances deserve. In say 3 years, move to another newer version of
Important / a must is that your current Quicken 2010 data file password
(the password you type in when you start Quicken) is under 15 characters in length BEFORE,
--before-- you start the upgrade path to Quicken 2013 !
If you go with Quicken 2013, -do- turn on Quicken 2013
automatic back-ups. Also regardless of whether you use Quicken 2009
or whatever version, do get into the habit of doing routine Quicken
manual back-ups say using a thumb drive / memory stick.
