Is there any way that I can use my old Quicken 6.0 for DOS with either Wondows XP or Windows 7?

Only thing that is coming to mind would be to partition the drive to give MS DOS a slice and then boot into that instead of XP/7.

A lot of old DOS programs do work in XP.  Have you given it a try?

I did try as you suggested and it works except that I cannot get it go print any reports.  The Quicken program doesn't offer a selection of an ink jet printer.  Any suggestions?

OK... so Quicken works, just won't print because you can't find an appropriate driver?

What drivers ARE offered in your version of Quicken?

I gotta ask.... have you considered upgrading to a current version of Quicken?  It's not very expensive and has a lot of advantages.

I finally realized that I was spending $10 to save  $1.  I found a simple, cheap (less than$15.00) checkbook program, played with the demo, and am happy with it.  MY apologizies for wasting your time and expertise on such trival problem.  Thank you again.
