The new Quicken 2013 adds an extensive mobile experience to the software. This is a must-have upgrade for long-time Quicken users.
Installed on Windows 8 tried it and it installed.
I started to set up an account but stopped because I didn't want it.
So I didn't register my account. No serial was needed, no crack or key generator came with it. I assume to register an account you are setting up internet access to your bankk accounts and quicken on line, so not 100 sure how it works, I didn't go that far. So not sure but I don't think your registering your software but creating a quicken account. So if you already have a quicken account it does give you the option to use that.
The extra file (QW2013R7MPatch.exe) is taking this version and updating it to R7 quicken 2013 latst updates
