Wasn't sure where this post should go but with explanation below, Feel free to harass me to move it.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8834. It came with Vista. I couldn't stand it. I downgraded to XP Pro and was very happy. All my other programs installed and worked fine for the past year. I finally decided to move my quicken program to laptop. It won't install. It doesn't even want to extract the files. I expanded the files so I could just run "Setup". That didn't work either.

I took the jump drive with the compressed files and successfully started to install on a laptop with XP home. I also have the program on two other XP home computers and it works fine.

This is the only computer that has XP Pro.

One error I get is NTVD.EXE 16 bit. If I look at task manager WOWEXEC.COM and MOM.EXE are running. They are not running on my XP Home machines when I run Quicken. Not sure if the "SETUP.EXE" file is a 16 bit file or not.

I'm running Microsoft Security Essentials as my virus protection/checker.

Any idea's on what may be the problem or how I can install? Quicken 98 does all that I need and I'm comfortable with it.

Thanks

Quicken Deluxe 98 is a very old program. The newest is Quicken Deluxe 2010.
Quicken Deluxe 98 is meant for windows 95 and 3.x Quicken Support
I am surprised it is running on XP home.

XP pro is a different OS. It has far more features than XP home.

You might want to try installing it in compatibility mode.
