Can't install quicken 2014

I previously upgraded from quicken 2013 to quicken 2014 without a problem. I had been using quicken 2014 for about a week and all of a sudden while I was using it, the program shutdown. Tried to start it back up but it wouldn't start. Restarted my computer but it still wouldn't start. Uninstalled quicken 2014, restarted my computer and tried to re-install quicken 2014. I get an error message that says 'an error has occurred while installing quicken 2014. Sorry! Quicken cannot be installed because your computer does not meet the minimum system requirements.' My computer is just over a year old and was using quicken 2014 at one time so I know that's not the problem. The error message does not seem to be a Microsoft error. The error message pops up as part of the install wizard.
  • me, too -[personal info removed for privacy & security compliance]
  • Same issue, but from the downloaded software. New installation (not upgrade) and gives same error message. Double-checked all system requirements met. Already tried the solution posted below (by NoWayJose). Did not work.
  • jtpatton13 - please provide more detail (start a new Question, if necessary) about your current operating system, the exact steps you took to resolve the messaging, and the final results. "did not work" is really open-ended and could mean any number of things. Without details, we cannot provide you any alternative solutions we can think of.  Thanks!
  • Purchased the Quicken 2014 (Deluxe) Download

    Downloaded and ran the Quicken_Deluxe_2014 file.
    It begins to extract files and then pops up a window:

    Quicken 2014 – Install Wizard
    ! An error has occurred while installed Quicken 2014.
    Sorry! Quicken cannot be installed because your computer does not meet the minimum system requirements.

    My system information:
    Gateway Desktop
    Model LX6810-01
    Intel Core 2 Quad – 2.33GHz
    8 Gb RAM
    580 Gb Harddrive (194 Gb Available)

    Windows Vista Home Premium – Service Pack 2
    64bit O/S

    1920 x 1080 resolution monitor

    DSL internet connection

    Compatible printer (HP Deskjet 952C)

    .NET 4.5 installed
    Internet Explorer 9 installed

    In the error message, it states:

    If you are currently using:

    - Windows Vista

    And you are still having trouble, see this support topic for instructions on how to complete installation.

    When I click the link, it takes me to the page:
    Quicken 2014 Install Error Regarding Minimum System Requirements (Article ID: GEN85942; updated 11/06/13 – changed since yesterday)

    I reviewed both options at the bottom of the page.
    Option One – I followed the steps, but there was no option for choosing Windows XP SP3 (step 4), there was only a listing for the SP2.

    Option Two – I ran QcleanUI. Restarted my system. Ran the installation file Quicken_Deluxe_2014 again and ended up with the same error message as above.
  • Been there, done that several time with different variations. No joy.
