Quicken 2013 Freezes on Registration

I recently installed Crossover 14 to run Quicken 2013 for Windows.  Quicken installs and I can open my data file but when I try to download transactions, it asks me to register.  When I register, Quicken appears to launch a mini-browser and I get a message that registration was successful, with one option - "Finish."

Unfortunately, when I click on Finish, it freezes and the lower left of the mini-browser has a "Connecting..." status that never changes.

I found something on the Quicken forums about a mondo update which I then attempted to install using Crossover, but received a message that my c: drive needs at least 100MB of free space to install the update, and I apparently don't have that.  Since the c: drive is virtual in Crossover, I'm not sure how to increase it's size, or even see what's allocated to it now.

Ideas on either of these issues?

(Sorry for originally posting this in the Linux forum -- didn't realize it at the time).

I found the answer with further searching on this forum...the secret key combination that disables the registration request.  (Registration with Intuit apparently isn't supported by Crossover).  Press the left Shift + left Control keys while selecting One Step Update in Quicken and you will get the message that you will no longer be asked the register.  After that, updating my bank transactions worked!
