I found a fix for the upgrade nag using Quicken 2013 Premier. Find

file, notice the number after the ExecNum= (in my file, it's the 2nd

right click the file. Select Properties. Under the attributes
select read only. This prevents Quicken from changing the number
ExecNum=. I found that if the number is less than 4, the nag screen
appear. Note: Before doing this, make sure that the most recent
is the way you want it. Quicken won't be able to change this list.
not a problem for me, since I use the same file every time.

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
