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.

Try this (from a prior post)...
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.

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.

I suspect Quicken Inc is maintaining its "marketing" state apart from the data file. If you haven't recently, I suggest performing a clean uninstall, install and update. You may want to review:

. To update Quicken, I recommend you download and apply the Mondo Patch:

I guess you just prefer to complain rather than try to do something about it. LOL.
