Passwords Not Working on 2013 Quicken Windows data files

While using my 2013 version I archived my data a couple of times. For these archives I created unique passwords and then used them multiple times so I know they worked. I then updated to 2017 Quicken Windows but now I can't access those earlier data file archives. Please help!

    I would say to try to go back to 2013 (or reinstatll 2013 on another computer) and open the files and take off the password.

    I'm staying on Quicken 2013 Premier for Windows.

    Thank you for the quick response. Unfortunately, my original 2013 version was a digital copy downloaded from I logged into my account with them but it only shows the 2017 version. Would you know where I could get a 2013 version that I would delete as soon as I deleted the password from my two archived qdf files.
