QB Issue Resolution:
Quicken 2006 has a PowerPC instruction set. Prior to Lion Apple included a PowerPC emulator called Rossetta that would allow Quicken to run. When Lion came out Quicken stopped working because the emulator was no longer included. Since then Intuit has updated Quicken Mac 2007 to be Intel native and it will run on Lion.
So… to use Quicken on Lion (and beyond) you need a copy of Quicken Mac 2007. There are some copies on eBay – it may still be sold elsewhere, I don’t know. I still use Quicken Mac 2007 and it works for me on Lion. Also there is a Quicken Essentials for Mac product but that doesn’t have investment and bill pay features although it is more modern.
Ok, that’s the Quicken side. On the QuickBooks Mac side, I believe QuickBooks Mac will open your Quicken file as is. However the conversion from Quicken to QuickBooks is in my opinion somewhat problematic – Quicken is a single entry system with unlimited numbers of “names” while QuickBooks is a double entry accounting system with limits on the number of available vendors, customers, etc.
You can download the QuickBooks Mac 2014 trial and import your Quicken file and see how it looks to you without having to pay anything.
My recommendation would be to start over with QuickBooks, assuming that you want to run a business. if you aren’t running a business and are doing personal finance stick with Quicken and find a 2007 version.
