How to use IDB files of Quicken Home Inventory on 64 bit Windows?

Directly load your IDB file from Quicken Home Inventory on any 64 bit Windows system. It works on 32 bit as well, of course. Today, a new version of Attic Manager is released, version 3.00. This version is able to load data directly from IDB files, there is no need to install any additional software. You don't even have to have Quicken installed. This also means that you can run this option on 64 bit Windows 7 for example, or even on Linux.

Attic Manager can also load the inventory data from QHI and MDF files. QHI files are also loaded without any additional software.

For MDF files you need to have Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition installed. This is a freeware from Microsoft that comes with QHIM, so if you already have Quicken installed on the same computer, you don't need to install anything.

In any case, Attic Manager is now unique software on the market, being able to load all Quicken Home Inventory formats and allowing you to keep track of your items on any PC.

There are even hints of Mac version coming soon.
