How to disable Quicken 2016 from asking me to update to 2018?

How to disable Quicken 2016 from asking me to update to 2018? The program ignores the little checkbox indicating I don't want to be reminded again! I'm running Quicken Deluxe 2016 on Windows 7 Pro.

Unclick the box in the lower left corner that says to remind me in the future.

Try this (from a prior post)...
From: Robert Wilson replying to kenneth63, Robert Wilson wrote: I found a fix for the upgrade nag using Quicken 2013 Premier. Find the app/roaming folder on your machine. On my Windows 10 machine, the path is c:\Users\Username\Appdata\Roaming. From this Roaming folder, go to the \intuit\quicken\config folder. You should see a file named QUSER.INI. Double click on it to open it. To make sure that quicken is using this QUSER.INI file, notice the number after the ExecNum= (in my file, it's the 2nd line). Exit out of the QUSER.INI file. Restart Quicken. Quit Quicken. Open the QUSER.INI file. the number after ExecNum= should have increased by 1. If this is the case, change the number to 0 and save the file. Exit QUSER.INI and right click the file. Select Properties. Under the attributes section, select read only. This prevents Quicken from changing the number after ExecNum=. I found that if the number is less than 4, the nag screen doesn't appear. Note: Before doing this, make sure that the most recent files list is the way you want it. Quicken won't be able to change this list. This is not a problem for me, since I use the same file every time.

replying to BookReader, docfiddle wrote: This workaround has been disabled in the latest Q17 release. The nag is now controlled by a hardcoded file /intuit/quicken/data/qw.rmd and not by quser.ini. The program changes the counter if it has read access to quser.ini but that action is now separated from the reminder tag, hardcoded into qw.rmd. If you delete quser, the program creates a new one. If you enter execnum=-999 and allow access, the program clicks the counter and moves on. If you make it read-only, the program ignores the file and you still get the nag. If you block access to /data and/or qw/rmd, the program gives you another nag screen telling you to unblock it, and if you rename qw.rmd the program creates a new one, so you have to choose between 2 evils: the upgrade nag or the unblock-so-you-get-the-upgrade-nag.

It should work until Quicken Inc. posts a new advertisement.

I doubt I'm the only one. It's more like "Unlucky you!"
The question is: Are you doing anything "unusual" that might prevent Quicken from tracking your request to not be reminded?

What I do (2017 version) is to click the update link which just opens the quicken web site and then go back to work. You might try that.
