Day 2A: Stick A Fork In It, We’re Done

As I was editing and publishing the previous post, Chad (one of the Senior SCM Engineers for the Mac products over at Quicken) sent me a workaround for the updater problem.

@QuickenChels was true to her word.  Someone from the company responded to me (same day, I might add).

The workaround they provided me was 8 steps (took me about two minutes to do) and fixed the problem.

And we’re done.

I don’t want to harp, but as you’ll note in the previous e-mail.  This all could have been avoided.

Intuit has some very sharp and very motivated people.  I’m hoping that this incident helps them to avoid these type of issues in the future.
