Has anyone been able to purchase the new version of Quicken 2007 for Mac?  Online, any reference to it goes straight to Quicken 2015 for Mac.   I called Intuit hoping to buy it directly. A guy with a strong Indian accent said he’d have to take control of my computer in order to install Quicken.  No way!!!     Anyway, I want it on disk, so I asked where to buy it on disk.  He said possibly Best Buy, but entering Quicken 2007 on that site shows Quicken 2015.    
Alles ist kaput.  Server icons have disappeared from the SideBar, DeskTop, and Network, and all attempts to access the Server from the Client have failed.  The suggestions you made did work for a time, but . . .   Again, I would think the problem is caused by the Western Digital Livewire Powerline AV Network Kit connection; however, the Client can be seen and accessed by the Server. It's probably something in the new mid-2014 iMac that's causing the problem.  
Update:   This a.m, Server icons had disappeared from the client DeskTop and from the Finder SideBar.  However I was able to access the Server by using Command-K.  I was also able to replace the Desktop and SideBar icons with minimal effort, but It's  a pain to have to do so. Hopefully, that won't happen often.     Again, thanks Marvin and irnchriz for your advice. I'd be lost without Apple-Insider.
Irnchriz, Okay. I followed your directions and now there's connection from client to server.  However, pardon me if I'm pessimistic.  I've been at this point twice before. e.g., on 11/26/14, when I bought this iMac.  Secondly, when I followed Marvin's suggestions.  Both times, they worked for a few days before the server disappeared from the client. I'm not going to hold my breath but hopefully, this will work from now on.   In any case, thanks for your time and...
Marvin, I think this is a losing battle.  The situation keeps changing from day to day if not hour by hour. Tweaking wi-fi doesn’t help.     At times, the Server shows up on the network; then, a few minutes later, it’s gone.  When it does appear, some files like ‘Users’ have a red minus sign and aren’t accessible.  At other times, only a stylized folder like an icon shows up but can’t be opened.    Intermittently, it works and the Server can be accessed, but I can’t...
   I’m back to square one.  On the Client, the Server doesn’t appear under Network at all, now,, and if I use Command K, I get the error message:   “There was a problem connecting to the server —- —-.101. Contact your system administrator for more information.”   I'd think the problem was the PowerLine connection; however, the client still shows under Network on the server and there's no problem linking with it from that direction. 
Yes. and have had to use them each time I've tried to link the client with the server; however, the system has become so flaky that that window isn't available at this point. In the last few minutes, I did get a window that suggests "Select the volumes that you want to mount on (apl:// number)", but the options are grayed out.   Thanks for trying to help, Marvin, but I've come to the conclusion that whatever is happening is too deep to fix.  It started out fine when I...
New problem accessing the server.   While the link can be opened to the server (by starting from scratch each time I try), it seems determined to block access.  Now, there’s a red minus sign on files leading to server files (e.g. ‘Users).    “Get Info” doesn’t help. It shows I have custom access, yet the minus sign is still there, and there’s no lock to unlock.    How can I get rid of the ‘minus’ signs and open those files? 
I agree. I've tried many regular and roller ball mice (mouses?) (cheap and expensive) over the years including the Magic Mouse and found the MTP best for me. Too bad Apple doesn't market a wired MTP.  However, there are several alternatives to using throw away batteries: Eneloop batteries and charger -  I use with wireless keyboard and a second MTP. Cheaper than Apples charger & batteries; however, I think Apple sells this under its own brand. Amazon.com: Sanyo Eneloop...
I second that.  The magic track pad is better by far than the magic mouse.  All the idiosyncrasies of the magic mouse are gone.  Furthermore, the MTP requires only finger movement, not hand and wrist so no more wrist carpal tunnel problems. The MTP takes up one small space and "rowing" across the desktop is not needed.  Moving the cursor is so much easier.  Don't confuse the MTP with a MBP trackpad. The MTP is more effective.
