I thought this was a fairly well known problem with Q2001. I think
that most people have not been able to do the online registration
part. I never was able to using that rev of Quicken. When I moved to
Q2004PE it worked OK.

How did you get IE installed and recognized by Quicken? I thought that
was petty difficult.

Anyway, you're not the first (I think) to have this problem...
