Hi, I have purchased Reckon 13 to run on my Win8 upgrade and have unsuccessfully attempted to convert my Quicken V8 file via 2004 etc. to open in my new version of Reckon 13 (extremely frustrating)
I have therefore decided to start a new file in 13 but still will require access to my historical V8 data file. However v13  wont install unless I uninstall v8. Is there any way to run both versions on the same OS?

Thanks

Hi conwayent,

Some users have successfully run older and current versions of the program at the same time on
the same computer using a system called Windows XP Mode from Microsoft.
Our support team cannot provide step by step assistance with that however.


If you are interested in seeing whether that is suitable for you needs, you can read about XP Mode
