I downloaded the 2007/Lion Quicken for Mac (just came out?). I am using Lion...

When I click on it is asks for my password then crashes, or just doesnt open.

Has anyone gotten it to work for them?

tried the usual stuff, reboot etc.

    it's happening to me too, and apparently to lots of other people.

    Shame on Intuit.

    one quick followup: apparently Intuit is trying to collect crash reports to help determine the problem. See... /SLN59495.html

    There's info on the crashing at the Intuit website. They are apparently having problems with it. I won't waste my money on it since they have always chosen to poorly support Macs. /SLN59495.html


    iBank works great and I won't go back to Quicken unless they change their attitude toward Mac users. You would think by now they could have created a new Quicken for Mac instead of trying to patch something that is 5 years out of date.

    Thanks, I waited to upgrade to Lion until this was available,

    Now I'm converting back to Snow Leopard (made a clone before upgrade) and I'll wait until this gets sorted out.


    Where did you see others having problem, my search found nothing or I would not have asked here.


    Still good to know it is not "me".


    thanks again



    It makes you wonder why their brand new release of Quicken would be called Quicken 2007. Think they missed the mark by roughly five years. I wouldn't buy a raffle ticket off Intuit. lol

    I downloaded Q2007 for Lion and installed it on a 10.6.8 system.  Runs fine with over 23 years of data, looks (and is, according to Intuit) just like the PPC Quicken, and it appears that there are no data conversions involved.  A data file used in Quicken-Lion can be later opened and used in Quicken-PPC.  This isn't a new program - just the old one with PPC code adapted/converted to Intel.  (If it was that easy, why couldn't it have been done a long time ago with maybe some improvements/enhancements along the way?  Oh well.)  Anyway, so far - no problems, but time will tell.

    Well, time just told.  Crash on quit (didn't do this earlier), 'unknown program error' on trying to reconcile account.  However, the Q-Lion changes made to data file carried back to Q-PPC with no problem.  Still on SL for a while - for this and other reasons.

    According to the original e-mail sent out by Intuit, they indicated that they are newly committed to keeping Quicken up to date for the Mac so I was surprised not to see a new Quicken 2012. Still, they seem ready to help users out by making the 2007 program work on Lion so they should be able to get the bugs out and hopefully present s new program next year. After using the software for over 20 years, I would rather give them the benefit of the doubt instead of switching to something else as long as they can get their act together.

    Looks like they have it running like a charm!! lol Good old Intuit, that's why I dumped them many moons ago.


    Good Luck

    FWIW, I downloaded the app when it first appeared. My dmg file has a 2/27/12 mod date. I've successfully run it on Lion and Snow Leopard (where it runs rapidly) w/o any crashes. Don't know why others are experiencing crashes, but Intuit seems to be on top of the crashing issues. All in all, not bad for an expected spring release and the $15 upgrade price is reasonable. Just my

    Nice to see your encouraging words. I was ready to pounce when I got the email but ran into Intuits "we have a little problem" going to the website...

    Quicken 2006 and years of records are the only reason I still run a Tiger HD and clone on my MacPro. Bought iBank but haven't warmed up to it yet. My bank doesn't support it online but I am still able to download checking account transactions to my Lion iBank test account....

    I fear Quickie Quicken 2007 Lion may be just another dead end, another excuse to procrastinate before facing the music in iCloud. I really haven't made Lion my main OS. Still based in SL.  Doors are closing. My Mac Pro can't make the jump to Mountain Lion. So I'm looking to an iPad/ cloud future but not fondly


    Real problem is I just can't face the folder by folder, format by format, storage device by storage device housecleaning and consolidation, that real progress or just keeping up requires.
