    Quicken 2004


    Very pleased to say that Quicken 2004 release2 works perfectly in Windows 10. I had to get the CDDVD player working which took some searching. Apparently Windows 10 omits the DVD player/writer in the upgrade and there is a workaround for this in regedit:
    Press the key combination Windows + R and type regedit in the Run dialog box.
    Now navigate in the left panel to the folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ atapi.
    Right click on the folder atapi and select New-> Key.
    Name the new folder "Controller0".
    Click the folder you created "Controller0" and right-click on the white space on the right side.
    Then select New> DWORD Value.
    Name this "EnumDevice1".
    Right click on "EnumDevice1" and select Modify.
    Enter "1" and click OK.
    Then close all windows and restart the PC.

    I hope all those out there that still use this useful accounting program will benefit from this and ignore a lot of bad advice claiming that you will need a VM, you won't. If you have a disc run it, it should be fine if you apply the above instruction.
    Good luck all, I have just successfully updated my year end accounts using Quicken 2004 in Windows 10.

    Windows 7

    I have used this method and it works, however when I attempt to back up to a memory stick the whole program freezes and becomes unresponsive. The computer has to be restarted. Anyone else had this problem and any one know how to solve it?
