Disable the Quicken 2012 Registration Prompt

It’s coming to that time of year where Quicken is going to need an update to keep running for the new year. You’ll just make it through the tax season and that’s it. Once you do upgrade you’ll be faced with that same annoying prompt that you have to register in order to actually use the software. Look, don’t force me to register. If I want to sign up to receive notices from you, that’s my decision, but don’t force it on me and stop the software from working because of it. As before, until you register you can’t retrieve data from your bank.

But there is a simple way around it. Like before, hold down the CTRL-SHIFT and click the REFRSH button in the upper left of the screen just under the menu bar. This will disable the registration prompt and Quicken will work as expected. How ironic that it’s almost one year to the day since I did this last time.

Quicken, your software isn’t bad, but stop the harassment.

How To Disable the Quicken Registration Prompt

I’ve been upgrading and installing software on my new machine this weekend and with that I moved away from the now defunct Microsoft Money to Quicken 2010. Personally I think the interface and other features of Quicken are quite quirky, but that’s neither here nor there. One is supported and the other is a steamy pile (even though the UI is better). Anyway, after importing everything and setting up new accounts Quicken throws up this incredibly annoying screen that says I need to register to actually use their program to download my bank info. Excuse me? WTF? I have to make an account with you to use this program? (Yet another online account I will never actually use?) That doesn’t fly. I have all my bank details and credit card info in here and now you want me to basically send that to you? I think not.

Just as I was about to remove it and write a terse vulgarity filled email I came across the answer: Disable Quicken Registration Prompt

Simply put, hold down the left CTRL + Shift keys and click the Update button toward the top. You’ll immediately get a confirmation that you are turning off the registration prompts and won’t be prompted to register anymore. But you can still get bank updates like you expect. Hopefully this little trick will keep working (I just did it in the 2010 version). I don’t really like registering software and giving companies more details about me.

Let me know about your successes.
