Installed QMAC19 but did not have an Uncorrupted file so Nothing downloaded.

Do I now UnInstall 19 so that I can try one of my resurrected and Re Indexed (via Op Cmd B) files.. The problem yesterday hung up Quicken 2007 ..will not close so I had to re Copy it over to Mac Mini too.
When I opened a now Indexed and updated 2007 copy. 19 tried to open (but couldn't)
That is why I was thinking I need to UnInstall it till I get 2007 copies stabilized.

    No. The 2 are completely independent. They can even both be run side by side with no interference between them (2 separate data files of course).

    Yes I have 2007 up an running on MINI now. But I had to force quit one APP copy cuz a. corrupted file got stuck trying to be sent to 19. I tried sending the active file from 07 on mini to 19 again yesterday using the upload button in note on conversion to Mojave I had ,
    I GET NOTHING (How do I drag a screen shot here? ) it says YOU HAVENT ADDED ANY ACCOUNTS. ...add your Accounts to see your Account Summary.
    HOW DO I GET IT TO READ my Active 07 file? Should I ReIndex it again (I have done that 3 times)

    CAN I tell 19 to go find my latest 07 using the OPEN FILE button or will NEW file button work better? Or do I IMPORT?

    In general terms (I'm not a Q Mac user myself) ...
    Close the Q Mac 19 app.
    Delete the broken Q Mac 19 data file
    Start Q Mac 19. Because there's no Q Mac 19 data file, Quicken should prompt you as if you were a new user and create a new, empty data file for you. This should also prompt you for import / conversion of your (now repaired) Q Mac 07 data file.
    If you're in a hurry to get this resolved, please contact Quicken Support and let them walk you through this process.

    Quicken Harold just saw your nice replies... as above I tried IMPORT and it says it is doing it. MORE later. (I know I tried 15 I think but it was not adequate as a 'double entry' type Income/Expense Asset/Liablity program. Yes I was a bookkeeper, and appreciate the Double Entry method.
