    Thanks for your help I went ahead and upgraded the version to Deluxe on Mac, and did Windows QXF export to USB No problems
    I then upgraded the Windows version to Deluxe.
    Copy file from usb to Windows desktop......It does the same thing the Windows Quicken cannot see the QXF or backup files....
    I am up to 2 versions Basic and deluxe and only Mac is working the Windows version makes me log in and won’t recognize any files from backup

    By the way the Quicken subscription version is the Starter edition

    P.S.S. Another person suggested a way around the fact that Quicken Starter doesn't support this import is to buy a Deluxe subscription and connect it to a different Quicken Id (as so not to mess with your current one). Do the conversion, and then ask for your money back under the 30 day refund period:

    (I'm using the latest Quicken subscription version)
