[NTLK] Pocket Quicken files

I use Pocket Quicken with Quicken 6 and Pocket Quicken Connect, and  
it does work well.
But, and there's a big but:

Quicken 6 doesn't work on 64-bit versions of Windows. It's a 16 bit  
app, and Windows XP 64, Windows Vista 64, and Windows 7 64 don't run  
16 bit code at all. If your PC runs 64-bit Windows you'll have to use  
an emulator running a 32 bit Windows - and a lot of those don't allow  
access to the serial port.

I just use an old laptop with Windows 98 installed. (Amusingly, it's  
a Toshiba Libretto 50ct, and is slightly smaller than the Newt I'm  
synching to it!)

Just an FYI.
