For the past few months I’ve been having trouble downloading my bank statements through Quicken. With one bank, it was hit or miss, and with another, it just stopped working entirely, always returning an “OL-249″ error. I finally discovered that there is an update to the security certificates that allows Quicken to make encrypted connections with the banks. To install it, go to this page and follow the instructions.

It would have been nice if the people at Intuit had actually publicized this…
