Cannot Update Quicken from Quicken Home Inventory. How do I restore link from QHI to Quicken?

Using Quicken Deluxe 2019 R16.16 Build, Canada Edition.   I had an OSX issue so restored my full system from a backup. I then had issues with QHI so restored my Quicken Home Inventory file from a Quicken backup.   I can see my data but when selecting "Send to Quicken", I receive error message, "There are currently no accounts in your Quicken data file.  Please create at least one account before attempting to send your Home Inventory data to Quicken" Any known fix for this?  I have no issues with my Quicken Data File.

    This just "a shot in the dark" ... really dark ... but ...
    Could it be that this is related to problem reports about Quicken not functioning properly when Microsoft Controlled Folder Access (aka Ransomware) is enabled and does NOT allow Quicken to update files in \Documents\Quicken?
    Could this issue also apply to Home Inventory QHI.EXE needing this permission?
    I can't test this theory because I'm not on Windows 10 yet.
