How can I get two users to access one qdf?

I have been using quicken for 20 years. For much of that time, we have had one computer with a login for me and for my wife. We could both access the qdf files from either login and work in them. Recently, I purchased Quicken Premier 2020 Windows version and when I try to open the qdf file on my wife's login, I get the following message "Quicken cannot open the data file because it is read-only or you do not have permission to open it. Do you want to copy it to a different location and open it from there?"

Of course I don't. I want to open it from either user on the computer. Is there a permission somewhere that I can activate? or some other approach?

Thanks,

    just to clarify here -
    do you mean the Windows User login
    OR the Quicken User Account ID login
    Also - what was your previous Quicken version - prior to the recent 2020 version.

    Move your Quicken folder to C:\Users\Public\Documents.
