Quicken CP SCRIPT ERROR 160 occurs when you update your accounts in Quicken for Mac using Quicken Connect connection method. It’s a connectivity error between your financial institution and Quicken software.

This error will exactly look like this in Quicken CP_SCRIPT_ERROR:160

Quicken Connect is also known as Express Web Connect (In Windows). You can fix this issue by simply switching the connection type. If you’re using Quicken Connect as a connection type, you should try switching to Direct Connect.

As a default Quicken for Mac choose Quicken Connect as a connection type but if your bank also does support Direct Connect, it’s good to connect with it.

    Thanks…I needed to go to Direct Connect…and your instructions made it possible. I had tried solving the problem on my own for a few weeks…but finally gave up and went for your help! I should have looked for your help sooner!

    I did this and it worked and now I can get downloaded transactions from this bank. However, I get a message that the account can no longer sync with Quicken cloud. Will this be a problem for me?
