I have a lot of custom designed and off the shelf software which won't run on 10 and the cost to replace it is substantial. Some can not be replaced and I need them for my businesses. I will not spend money just to be able to prepare returns using TT pc version. Intuit can do as it wants, but then I'll be looking at H&amp;R Block or other tax software so see if it will run on 7. I use the pc version and from what I saw win 7 will still work if you use the online versions. the reason I use the pc version is i have many family members for which I prepare their returns - cheaper that paying to establish an online account for each - none of which can use the free version. Intuit should consider how many customers it could loose if it carries through with its plan not to support PC version of TT using win 7.

Plus, Microsoft does patch OSs after the support ends, if the issue is severe; Win XP was patched in May 2019.</P> Sun, 11 Aug 2019 03:56:01 GMT https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/taxes/discussion/re-can-you-please-make-turbotax-2019-compatible-with-windows-7-i-don-t-want-to-change-my-os-just-to/01/839628#M329626 MostlyHarmless 2019-08-11T03:56:01Z Re: Can you please make TurboTax 2019 compatible with Windows 7.

Unfortunately, thousands of people prefer Windows 7 and now will be without support. TurboTax is also one of the most popular tax preparation products on the market and they will have tons of extremely unhappy people if they have to switch to Windows 10 in order to use TT. Hopefully, beginning with the 2019 tax year (in 2020), TurboTax will make some accommodations for all the people who prefer to keep their tried and true, big blue, Windows 7.

Run the official installer and wait until it shows the "win7 not supported" error dialog.</P><P>2. Do NOT close the dialog.</P><P>3.

Go to the folder where you made sure to copy the extracted files.</P><P>8. Run the "TurboTax 2019 Installer.exe".</P><P>9. It will again show some error log like "cannot run installer unless via setup.exe " or something like that.</P><P>10. Search again in your system TEMP folder for something like "TurboTax 2019 install.msi" (or a similar file with .msi file extension).</P><P>11. Make a copy of the folder containing the msi file.</P><P>12. Click ok to close the stupid "cannot run installer unless xyz" dialog.</P><P>13.

Type the following: msiexec /i path_to_that_msi_file /passive</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>And voila, it will install, and no more Intuit stupidity.

<P>Microsoft will implement Windows 7 "end of life" in January 2020, meaning it will discontinue all support, including paid support; and all updates, including security updates.</P>

we all know the end of life story. but consider how many people would have to replace or upgrade there win 7 computers. in some cases they will be able to upgrade to W10, others won't, which means buying a new computer and probably a lot of other software if such is even available any more. I have a lot of custom designed and off the shelf software which won't run on 10 and the cost to replace it is substantial. Some can not be replaced and I need them for my businesses. I will not spend money just to be able to prepare returns using TT pc version. Intuit can do as it wants, but then I'll be looking at H&amp;R Block or other tax software so see if it will run on 7. I use the pc version and from what I saw win 7 will still work if you use the online versions. the reason I use the pc version is i have many family members for which I prepare their returns - cheaper that paying to establish an online account for each - none of which can use the free version. Intuit should consider how many customers it could loose if it carries through with its plan not to support PC version of TT using win 7.

<P>Hackitoff:&nbsp; Exactly.&nbsp; After 20 years with TT I hate to switch to another tax program, but TT is forcing my hand.&nbsp; Win7 is working beautifully for me and I don't want the hassle of changing OS.&nbsp; That always incurs unexpected problems and it takes days to get everything the way you want it.&nbsp; And, of course, there's always the issue of certain programs you use all the time suddenly not working on the new OS.&nbsp; And TT online is simply not a viable option.&nbsp; My return is too complex, plus I do returns for several family members.</P>

the good news is you don't have a MAC ... they have to upgrade every two years or so and many of the CPUs cannot be upgraded more than once or twice so a new unit needs to be bought ... at least with Windows they allow you to keep an OS for 10+ years.<BR /><BR />I doubt that TT will keep Win 7 access for much longer ... even my professional program will required Win 10 for next tax season ... this means I need to upgrade 7 computers by the end of the year.

<P>Your real problem is Microsoft, in that Microsoft brought out Windows 10 but did not make it 100% backward-compatible with Windows 7.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>It is very expensive to maintain software on multiple hardware and software platforms - that is why most software companies (not just Intuit) will cease support of their software when Microsoft stops support of the underlying operating system. I say this as someone with 30+ years experience in software development and support.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>As noted above, your 2019 TurboTax software may still work fine on Win 10, if it doesn't use any operating systems calls that are unique to Win 10. It is definitely worth trying before you go off and invest time and energy in a new tax product.</P>

<P>When I received the notification that Windows 7 will not be supported by TT I upgraded to Windows 10 and it has, and is, a train wreck.&nbsp; It keeps trying to update Windows 10 that was installed and freezes my computer.</P>

<P>For security reasons, there is zero chance that 2019 TurboTax will be supported under Windows 7 because extended support for Windows 7 ends before the filing deadline for 2019 tax returns.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Although a bit cumbersome, there are ways to run TurboTax in a Windows 10 virtual machine running on a Windows 7 host system.</P>

<P>If you still use Windows 7 you need to be concerned with security issues after January 12, 2020.&nbsp; While you can always use 3rd party programs (other than those than come with Windows 7), Microsoft will STOP providing security updates for Windows 7 after that date. &nbsp;Support for Windows 7 will end on Jan. 14, 2020.&nbsp; After that date Microsoft will no longer issue security updates to patch discovered vulnerabilities in the OS.&nbsp; At that point your exposure to hackers will increase.&nbsp; I strongly recommend that you upgrade to Windows 10.</P>

<P>Critter: I've got a 2011 iMac. Running Windows 7 on VMWare Fusion. I run TT on the Mac OS but I could run it on Windows 7 on VMWare just as easily. On 1/1/2020 I will install Windows 10 on the VMWare application. No new machine required in either case.</P>

<P>aircarl:</P><P>Thanks for the tip.&nbsp; I did a little quick research and think I get how to set it up.&nbsp; Now a basic question.&nbsp; If I have a dual boot set up on my pc - one Win 7 and one Win 10 - if I boot up with Win 10, will I still see my other programs and will they run on Win 10?&nbsp; For example, I have Firefox on Win 7 which stores my bookmarks and some login info for various websites.&nbsp; If I boot in Win 10, will I see Firefox and will it retain all my bookmarks and login info?&nbsp; Same question for Outlook?&nbsp; Will all my saved email addresses carry into the Win 10 version?&nbsp; I'm curious to understand what I'm getting into.&nbsp; I assume some old programs will not work in Win 10 - that's the downside of any upgrade.</P>

<P>If you want to get fancy, you can run Windows 10 in a virtual machine under Windows 7 (I have done this).&nbsp; &nbsp; But this all depends on what Intuit means by&nbsp; "not supported"; if it means "we are going check for win 7 to make it not run at all" that's pretty extreme;&nbsp; but if its "we won't even try to support you if you are running on windows 7", then is likely not to actually block people from using it.&nbsp; Considering that Intuit has not fixed some basic usability problems in the 10 years I've been using it, I doubt they are going to make any significant code changes in the normal course of development to make it NOT work on Win 7.&nbsp; &nbsp;As of today, I see that independent stats show windows 7 hold 31% of the windows install base (win10 58%, Win 8.1 only 6%).&nbsp; Seems like a bad business decision to cut off sales to that segment of the market. Plus, Microsoft does patch OSs after the support ends, if the issue is severe; Win XP was patched in May 2019.</P>

<P>so.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;some are still running win 95 or win xp.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;i tried the compatibility check with win 10 and have expensive custom&nbsp; software that is not compatible.&nbsp; &nbsp;if TT is willing to reimburse me with the cost (originally in the $ 000's) of replacing this software, I'd be more than happy to migrate to 10.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; hope it works even if no support for those running win 7.&nbsp; if not, dual boot or virtual machine.&nbsp; of course&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</P>

<description>
Microsoft is putting Windows 7, one of the most popular windows versions, to bed. Unfortunately, thousands of people prefer Windows 7 and now will be without support. TurboTax is also one of the most popular tax preparation products on the market and they will have tons of extremely unhappy people if they have to switch to Windows 10 in order to use TT. Hopefully, beginning with the 2019 tax year (in 2020), TurboTax will make some accommodations for all the people who prefer to keep their tried and true, big blue, Windows 7. Thank you for your support!

Re: Can you please make TurboTax 2019 compatible with Windows 7. I don't want to change my OS just to run TT. Perhaps if enough folks complain, TT will change its ridiculous plan. I've been a user for 20 years and this really ticks me off.

<P>I buy TurboTax software from a membership store and get a big cost saving compared to the online version.</P>

<P>what TT has not made clear is will 2019 be installable on earlier versions of windows just don't ask for support or totally incompatible with earlier versions of windows.&nbsp; maybe if H&amp;R block software supports win7, I'll move over to it.&nbsp; It's cheaper but I found more complicated to use.&nbsp; &nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>i have tried converting. using free software. my win 7 MBR disk to GPT (Win 10 only installs on GPT with an exception when installing on virtual machine) . unfortunately, the free stuff only converts data disks ( those containing no OS) from MBR to GPT.&nbsp; there is software available for a fee that says it can convert OS disks from MBR to GPT but haven't&nbsp; tried it.&nbsp; I would then install 10 in dual boot mode.&nbsp; the problem with dual boot&nbsp; - not only do you have to install&nbsp; 10&nbsp; but drivers for video cards, certain keyboards, mice and printers and other soft</P> <P>ware.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>2nd option install virtual machine and then install 10 in virtual mode. it will work win 7 MBR disk&nbsp; but with certain VM's you have the same issue with drivers.&nbsp; &nbsp;Supposedly, MS VM is a type 1 VM which can access the drivers on the win 7 partition.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>3rd I have spare disks and sata ports so I can install 10 as a separate OS.&nbsp; there would still be need to install drivers and other software and the boot priority would have to be changed back and forth.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>4th I work for a CPA firm which allows its people to prepare their returns for free - no e file.&nbsp; and there is no import from brokerage firms or transfer of data from TT.&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P>

<P>aircarl:&nbsp; That link is not much help.&nbsp; I, and I suspect many others, do not wish to use the online version of TT.&nbsp; I need to do several returns for family members and it's much easier to have the program running right here in front of me.&nbsp; Also, it's better to have it installed on the pc so you can always go back and fiddle with things at your leisure, including doing "what if" scenarios.</P>

<P>Hackitoff:&nbsp; I am hoping TT will install on my Win 7 pc as in the past and hopefully does not have any problems running.&nbsp; It would be a real pain if you got 3/4 through your tax return and it decided to blow up or freeze permanently.</P><P>However, since posting this topic, I just purchased an inexpensive Win 10 laptop.&nbsp; I figured I can use the laptop as a learning device, among other things, as well as a backup device should my pc call it quits.&nbsp; I can transition some of my files to the laptop in the interim.&nbsp; And if TT doesn't work on my pc, I can just use it on the laptop.</P><P>I hate trying to adjust to a new operating system where "everything is different."&nbsp; It looks different, it works different, it's a pain in the butt.&nbsp; It took me two days trying to get the new Win Mail to download my Apple emails and contacts.&nbsp; (It was an Apple rep that gave me the key trick, since MSoft and Lenovo can't be bothered.)</P>

<P>For those considering a switch to another consumer-level product, it would be well to bear in mind that the transfer from TurboTax to the other product could present issues, at least 100% of the data might not get transferred.&nbsp;</P>

<P>Windows 7 will&nbsp; not be safe to use next year - why take a chance.&nbsp; <STRONG>The big thing to note is that once extended support ends, Microsoft's official policy is to no longer patch security issues</STRONG>. That means if hackers and other cyber-criminals find a security flaw in the operating system, they'll effectively have free reign to exploit it.</P>

sorry ... all those business using win 7 will need to upgrade sooner rather than later ... my income tax office must upgrade 5 computers so we can use the 2019 professional tax program so I am also upgrading my home computer &amp; laptop at the same time ... good thing I have a great tech person who will do it all on the cheap.

<P>Hi All,</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I understand the security concern, but like many others I am not a fan of Windows 10. It is nowhere as stable as Windows 7 (not to mention the disaster called Windows 8/8.1).&nbsp; There are numerous tech articles out there telling people about the vulnerabilities; they seem weekly.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>If TT2019 will not install on WIN7 and there is no compatibility mode option, then we are stuck.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Creating a virtual WIN10 machine is certainly a way to go, but it will require a brand new WIN 10 license and it will not be eligible for a WIN7 to WIN10 upgrade (because you still have WIN 7 running).&nbsp;&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Intuit SHOULD create and deliver a VM to run TT. It could be LINUX based and be done with it. I doubt they will do that.&nbsp; As far as security since it would be compartmentalized it would be super secure.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Intuit was once an excellent company and over the years has deteriorated in responsiveness to customer needs.

<P>Well complain all you like but progress will happen even if you don't like it ... a couple of years ago when XP was discontinued you could still use the TT program for a while however there was no guarantee the program would work correctly and absolutely no technical support was available.&nbsp; &nbsp;At least you are not using a MAC whose planned obsolescence program is much more aggressive ... you have to upgrade every 3 years or so.&nbsp;&nbsp;</P>

<P>Some software companies will issue *updates* for there product(s) for obsolete OS's, but I know of no software company that will write *NEW* software for a system that is no longer supported by the vendor of that system.&nbsp; For one thing compatibility issues that are the fault of the OS become impossible to resolve for unsupported OS's.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Systems such as Apple Mac must use the Apple software developers package in order to use the Apple (Mac) system functions and the developer software only supports the current and last two releases so it is not possible to develop new Mac software for any OS prior to OS X 10.13 since it cannot even be complied.&nbsp; Thus for 2019 only OS x 10.13 or later will be supported by TurboTax because it is not supported by Apple.&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Windows developers of new software might have similar issues that the current compilers do not support the older systems.</P>

<P>I see that Turbo Tax have said that 2019 WILL be installable and useable on Windows 7 - it appears they just won't provide support.&nbsp; OK ..... but they definitely will NOT be offering this ability to run on Windows 7&nbsp; for 2020.&nbsp; They suggest going 'on line'....&nbsp; I don't want to prepare and file on line..I print my returns as I need to provide a rather detailed data and breakdowns with the returns I prepare for myself/family members.&nbsp; &nbsp;Why Microsoft discontinued Windows 7 is a total mystery to all of us who love this user-friendly system.&nbsp; I will certainly never go to Windows 10 which is a total disaster&nbsp; (or even 8). Mine is a working computer for home/office use - not game playing and surfing the ##*#($ web..and Windows 7 happily operates familiar and friendly&nbsp; old software like MS Money, MS Works etc. and etc.&nbsp; Intuit will be losing me as a customer after 2019 if they continue with this pigheadedness.&nbsp; They seem totally blinkered to those of us who have been loyal for many (many years.&nbsp; Oh well we can all hope some enterprising soul will step up to the plate ---perhaps with an even better set&nbsp; of&nbsp; tax software!?&nbsp;</P>

<P>Well like it or not progress will not be stopped ... you may still own an antique Model T and it may run but getting service or parts for it is nearly impossible.&nbsp; Same for computer systems but the evolution for these machines are counted in months not decades.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>An operating system has a limited life cycle and we have to accept this ... I personally still miss my XP.&nbsp; &nbsp;Again be happy you are using a WINDOWS product ... the poor MAC people need to upgrade every 2 - 3 years and their computers are 4 times as expensive.&nbsp;&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>You may think you can keep using the same OS but all your programs you run have updates that may not be compatible in the future and the viruses that can sneak into an unprotected system&nbsp; could wipe the hard drive or worse.&nbsp; If you are not going to unplug from the internet then good luck.&nbsp;&nbsp;</P>

<P>&nbsp;I am not trying to be harsh ... just a realist.&nbsp; You keep swinging at windmills but you are not going to win.&nbsp; Intuit cannot and will not continue to support an OS that is out of date.&nbsp; What you have to do it get WIN 7 reinstated by Microsoft ... that is where the real issue lies.&nbsp;</P>

You missed my analogy ... you are correct ... a 2010 model car is not old at all however a 2010 computer it is considered ancient like a model T. Sadly no one likes to be forced to upgrade but in our current world where technology changes in leaps and bounds weekly you cannot expect the manufacturers to continue to support all systems it produces. At some point they are discontinued like XP &amp; vista &amp; DOS.

Re: Can you please make TurboTax 2019 compatible with Windows 7. I don't want to change my OS just to run TT. Perhaps if enough folks complain, TT will change its ridiculous plan. I've been a user for 20 years and this really ticks me off.

<P>So, I got TT today. I downloaded it, installed it and get the first screen. And was thrilled I wouldnt have to update and had another year to get a new computer or convert to Win10. I am a senior and my wife and I each have our own computer.&nbsp; We have been with TT Advantage for many years. The first screen was great. And then the blank activation screen was almost the last straw.&nbsp; I was on the phone with tech for over an hour...they were surprised the company would post a promise to let it work and then not.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I foolishly tried to upgrade to win 10. ruined my computer.&nbsp; It is now useless. So I have to either buy a new one or learn how to do a clean install. All this to pay my taxes....???WTF?&nbsp; &nbsp;Maybe if enought of us quit or threaten then they will send out a copy that supports win7.&nbsp; The problem is they already sent out cds which DO NOT.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I no longer trust this company.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="CropperCapture[1].jpg" style="width: 816px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/2407iE0FEAA56C716E01C/image-size/large?v=1.0&amp;px=999" role="button" title="CropperCapture[1].jpg" alt="CropperCapture[1].jpg" /></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="CropperCapture[2].jpg" style="width: 935px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/2406i48073BFA085A8C09/image-size/large?v=1.0&amp;px=999" role="button" title="CropperCapture[2].jpg" alt="CropperCapture[2].jpg" /></span></P>

<P>Hi.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I just upgraded my Window7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I am pretty technical and it was difficult since I could not use the upgrade procedure. It failed many times and I could not work around that.&nbsp; I eventually did a clean install (keep files, not apps) from a USB stick.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I still had to evaluate and reinstall the software I use.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>TT has bought users another year, but due to Microsoft's decision to end of life Windows 10, eventually everyone will need to upgrade/migrate. Good malware and anti-virus software will help, but without security updates, you leave yourself at risk.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>If we can figure out a way to communicate privately I am pretty sure I can get you going with Windows 10.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Let me know.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P>

Re: Can you please make TurboTax 2019 compatible with Windows 7. I don't want to change my OS just to run TT. Perhaps if enough folks complain, TT will change its ridiculous plan. I've been a user for 20 years and this really ticks me off.

<P>in preparation with TT's announcement that win 10 was needed for 2019 returns. , I created a dual boot system.&nbsp; one ssd with win 7 and&nbsp; one with win 10.&nbsp; &nbsp;win 10 software was free.&nbsp; &nbsp;before trying to install TT 2019 on win 7, i will use imaging software to create copy of the win 7 drive.&nbsp; i will then try to install&nbsp; TT.&nbsp; if it fails and messes up the os, i have an image to restore drive to its original state.&nbsp; will then try to install on the win 10 drive.&nbsp; &nbsp;I will also create an image of the win 10 drive before installing TT on it.&nbsp; who knows.&nbsp; TT could be so junky that it might not even install - my system surpasses minimum system requirements.&nbsp; &nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>using tt for 2019 return on win 7 is a one year fix. because TT has said software for 2020 returns&nbsp; will not install on win 7.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>good luck to all desktop users&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>by the way I used win 95 until windows xp was out for 2 years&nbsp; &nbsp; lost much software even with disk and no licensing requirements. would not run or install even in compatibility mode.&nbsp; &nbsp;issues seem to the software would not run on higher versions of direct x (no backward compatibility)&nbsp;</P> <P>next was from xp to win 7 more software lost - same issues</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P>

<P>So, is the TurboTax 2019 compatible with Windows 7 or not?&nbsp; Intuit say "yes" in the&nbsp;ads and in Tech Support texts we have seen.&nbsp; &nbsp;Is it true?&nbsp; Should we trust them?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>The vulnerability of Windows 7 is currently way overblown.&nbsp; Symantec/Norton still runs on Windows 7 and still runs on our kids Windows XP systems.&nbsp; Why should we throw away perfectly good hardware that runs just fine because Microsoft and Intuit say so?&nbsp; The kids PCs won't run Windows 7 so they will stay with XP until the hardware fails.&nbsp; We will run Windows 7 on our other&nbsp;PCs until the hardware fails.&nbsp; Intuit and TurboTax need to understand, we are the customer.&nbsp; Take it or leave it.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thank you.</P>

<P>I just now downloaded the TT 2019...&nbsp; tried to install it on my windows 7 machine and all it does is come up with the splash screen warning you of windows 7...&nbsp; when you click install on windows 7 the screen goes away and it does nothing after that... as in it does not install at all....&nbsp; &nbsp;I also downloaded it to my windows 10 machine that is my photo/video workstation where TT does not belong...&nbsp; I'll be doing my 2019 Tax this year on the windows 10 machine and then un installing it....&nbsp; then I'll just have to do my taxes the old fashion way...&nbsp; print out the forms and manually do the taxes...&nbsp; this will be my last year with TT...&nbsp; if I had known it wasn't going to install on my windows 7 machine I never would have bought it...&nbsp; &nbsp;good bye TT...&nbsp;&nbsp;</P>

<P>Win 10 is a resource hog and by ceasing support MS will drive users of Win 7 on older platforms toward purchasing new hardware in order to run Win 10.&nbsp; My 5-year old laptop won't run Win 10.&nbsp; My choices are to remain with a locked-down Win 7 and if Intuit fails to directly address whether TT for 2019 will run under the Win 7 OS by early January, I'll set up a dual boot of a Linux variant and run TaxAct to file my 2019 taxes.&nbsp; Intuit - please answer the mail!</P>

<P>I agree 100%.&nbsp; My oldest TurboTax CD is for tax year 1998, and I've been a loyal customer ever since.&nbsp; However, being forced to change my OS is not a good business plan.&nbsp; Scores of programs are built to run on various OS upgrades, so why can't TurboTax?&nbsp; I was not happy being forced by Intuit to go from XP to W7, and I'll be darned if they think they can forced me to upgrade again.&nbsp; Time to check out the competition and/or even open-source solutions.</P>

<P>The best place to complain is to Microsoft for ending Win 7 support.&nbsp; The last thing Turbotax needs is media reports of their customers&nbsp; being hacked and data stolen from their tax returns.&nbsp; For this reason. TT simply cannot afford to continue to install their products on an unsupported operating system.&nbsp;&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>The thing to do is go to Microsoft.&nbsp; XP users got an extra year of support when that ended because so many users complained to them about ending XP support.&nbsp; We have here the same situation.&nbsp; MS has ended support for Win 7 so ALL software vendors have to stop supporting it.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>lg20467</P>

<P>FYI ... you will not be able to use any downloaded tax programs after this year ... the other major tax programs do not support Win 7 now.&nbsp; You can use the online version instead.&nbsp; And I just bought a new CORE&nbsp; i5 laptop for less than $600 so I don't know where you are shopping ... and if you have a desktop version you only need to buy the tower since you already have the peripherals.&nbsp;</P>

<P>This is all hogwash.

Can show you how it can be done. Just message me.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thanks.</P>

<P>Folks, it's simple: this is how to make it install on win7:</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>1. Run the official installer and wait until it shows the "win7 not supported" error dialog.</P><P>2. Do NOT close the dialog.</P><P>3. Search in your system TEMP folder for the extracted TurboTax files. You should see a "TurboTax 2019 Installer.exe" file or something like that.</P><P>4. Make a copy of the folder containing that .exe and all the other files in that folder.</P><P>5. Now you can click ok to close the "win7 not supported" error dialog.</P><P>7. Go to the folder where you made sure to copy the extracted files.</P><P>8. Run the "TurboTax 2019 Installer.exe".</P><P>9. It will again show some error log like "cannot run installer unless via setup.exe " or something like that.</P><P>10. Search again in your system TEMP folder for something like "TurboTax 2019 install.msi" (or a similar file with .msi file extension).</P><P>11. Make a copy of the folder containing the msi file.</P><P>12. Click ok to close the stupid "cannot run installer unless xyz" dialog.</P><P>13. Open a command prompt in Admin mode.</P><P>14. cd to the folder where you made a copy of the msi file.</P><P>15. Type the following: msiexec /i path_to_that_msi_file /passive</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>And voila, it will install, and no more Intuit stupidity. Also no need for win10, dual boot, laptops to buy, and other dumb things...</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>You're welcome.</P><P>&nbsp;</P>

<P>Re: "TurboTax 2019 CD/Download software will install and run on a Windows 7 computer"</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>This statement is only partially true:</P><P>- US version of TurboTax 2019: win7 is accepted (but with a warning dialog).</P><P>- Canadian version of TurboTax 2019: win7 is REJECTED completely.&nbsp; Hence the sequence of steps I was recommended previously, which will allow the install to proceed.</P>

<P>Like others I've been hoping that either the turbotax experts would tell us HOW to make Win7 work not just that it will work, or that community experts would find a straightforward procedure and let us know. As it happens I found a trivial solution that works on my computer, and hope it works for others.&nbsp;</P><P>Go to the downloaded turbotax exe file, right-click, and choose Properties.</P><P>At the bottom of the properties box there's a statement that this file came from another computer and might be blocked to protect your computer. Beside it there's an Unblock button. Click it and everything works!</P>
