Step 1. Update my Quicken Software

To ensure your software will perform as described in the instructions below, perform a One Step Update to receive the most up-to-date version of your Quicken software and Wells Fargo Advisors online information.

To determine which Quicken release is installed in your software, choose About Quicken from the Quicken Help menu. The About Quicken window contains current release information.

To perform a One Step Update, connect to the Internet, and complete the following steps:

  1. Choose Online menu > One Step Update.
  2. Uncheck the Financial Institution box, then click Update Now.
    • If an update to Quicken is available, Quicken displays a message at the bottom of the One Step Update Summary dialogue box indicating there is a Quicken update available.
    • Click on the message and follow the on-screen instructions to install the available update.
  3. Verify in the About Quicken the latest release of the software.

If One Step Update does not update your software with the latest release, you can manually download the latest Quicken update from the Quicken Update support website.
