Intuit has informed me through the mail that in order to continue
downloading credit card transactions from Quicken Credit Card issued by
Travelers Bank I would have to upgrade to Quicken 2000 Deluxe by November
15. Quicken 98 is the last 16-bit version of Quicken, so it is the last
version that will run in Win-OS2.
I've communicated with the support people and it seems unlikely that a patch
will be issued for Quicken 98 to allow it to continue transactions with
their new server, but they didn't rule it out. If no patch will be
available, it seems my options are to either get an account with a big bank
like Wells Fargo that supports on-line banking directly with Quicken 98, or
boot into a W32 OS for Quicken 2000.
I'd hate to either stop using my credit union or have to boot a Windows OS.
I'm hoping that if there are any others in my situation and they communicate
their concerns to Intuit we may be able to get a patch from them, but if I'm
alone with this problem I guess I'll have to deal with it somehow.
Anybody else in this boat?
