Problems with Quicken Technical Support - Downloading Via One-Step Update

I have been trying to get a problem with getting transactions downloaded from my credit union by way of the One-Step Update functionality solved. I am using Quicken 2012 Premier R4 (21.1.4.22) The One-Step Update summary says that my accounts have been updated successfully, but the new transactions aren't getting downloaded. I have no problems getting transactions from other financial institutions, although the credit union I'm having problems with is the only one that uses Express Web Connect. The rest use Direct Connect. I used to have this problem in Quicken 2009 Premier, but Quicken technical support finally solved it, albeit with less rigamarole than I'm experiencing now. The problems reappeared when I "upgraded" to Quicken 2012. I use two Quicken data files, both of which have accounts with this credit union, and both have the problem of not getting new transactions downloaded.

For the record, I've tried:

(1) Deactivation/reactivation of the accounts. This works for a day, but the same old problem appears the next day.

(2) File validation/super-validation. This didn't help.

(3) Updating from the individual accounts' registers. This didn't help.

(4) Downloading directly from the credit union website. This works, but defeats the purpose of the One-Step Update, which I'd like to get functioning properly.

I've been in contact with Quicken support since Dec. 6 and I have sent them my OFX.log and CONNLOG files four times. I usually get an email saying my files are "invalid" every time I submit them. Can someone tell me how I can get cut through the bureaucracy to get the problem solved?

Thanks.

I spoke with someone in the IT department at my bank. He told me that the bank has no business relationship with Intuit. Yet Intuit claims to support this bank with EWC. I also asked if there was any technical difference between how Mint obtains transactions and how Quicken does it. He said no. Mint works reliably. Quicken does not.

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.
