Actually. That might just work even better. I just tried it and opened then quit Quicken several times without it triggering anything.

I would tho' set up custom preferences if you have any, before locking the Preference file.

But yes, locking a fresh preference file seems to prevent those "only 10 more goes left" nags.

What about just trashing the preferences file, let Quicken recreate it, and then immediately lock it so Quicken can't make changes? Wouldn't that work?

...the August 11 2009 registration instructions no longer work. How do I bypass the 10-use limit?

I don't know of a serial workaround for this one. But if no-one knows of a better solution, you can trash the Quicken Prefs file from the Preferences Folder inside the System Folder. You can do this it seems indefinitely and you don't lose your data. But it does require trashing the prefs file each time it informs you there are 10 more uses.

Another method, also involving the Quicken prefs file:

  1. Trash the existing prefs file (if it exists).
  2. Start Quicken (so it auto-creates a fresh prefs file) and get it's preferences set up to how you prefer, then quit Quicken.
  3. Go the the Preferences folder and drag the new prefs file onto ResEdit, to open it in ResEdit.
  4. Go to ResEdit's "File" menu and choose "Get Info for Quicken 7 Preferences".
  5. In the dialog that comes up, change both the "Creation" and "Modification" date fields to some time in the future. - I used: Fri, Jun 14, 2024 for both of the fields.
  6. Close the dialog and save when prompted, then quit ResEdit.
  7. Select the Quicken prefs file in the Finder and choose Get Info on it. Lock it (this prevents Quicken from changing or re-creating it).

Each time you then launch Quicken it will complain about the time differences, but will run anyway once you click OK to it. As the creation and mod dates are in the future it can no longer set a 10 more tries nag. This should be good until 2024 (or whatever date/year you set it to).

[Edit] Ignore this, a much easier workaround is now outlined in the page description, above.

I'm trying to use Quicken SE 7 on an old Mac and have found that the August 11 2009 registration instructions no longer work. How do I bypass the 10-use limit? Thank you.
