Quicken for Mac 2007 will not open ANY file

When I tried to open my Quicken file this afternoon I got the error message that the file could not be opened. I am running High Sierra 10.13.6 and have had no problems, except for the automatic backup issue, until now. I backup the computer via Time Capsule. I attempted to open a TC back up from August, but that failed, too. I found the solution in Quicken Support that calls for locating the Quicken data.qdfm file (press Control, show Package Contents, etc.) That did not work. I then opened a data file from Dec. 2018 on my previous computer. I made a copy of that file, loaded it onto a thumb drive and transferred it to my current computer. Quicken cannot open that file either.

Any ideas what the real problem might be and how recover?

    Have you tried restoring the Quicken 2007 application from your backup (or copying it from your other computer)? It seems unlikely, but perhaps something with the program itself is damaged.

  • Thanks, Jacob. I will try that. Hope it works.
