Transferring program/data from old computer to new one

How do I transfer my Quicken 2018 Starter Edition software/data files from my old computer to my new one. My old one has Windows 10 Home on it and the new one has Windows 10 also. I tried to copying the whole Quicken file to a flash drive and then installing it on the new computer but it says I'm missing a mfc100.dll data file which is a Windows system file. I found that file and also tried to transfer to Windows on the new computer but that didn't help.

    Ok thanks, I'll try that. Didn't know I would need the Quicken Installer software.

    With Windows programs (except very simple ones), they have to be installed and can not simply be moved from one computer to the next.
