Read Only

I just transferred my files over from one laptop to a new laptop. Now when I open quicken on my new laptop I get a message that I cannot open the file because it is read only. How do I fix that?

    Also, what Q product are you running and what BUILD of that product? And, what's the Valid Thru date of your product.
    You can open Q without opening a data file by holding down the CTRL key while you click on the Q PROGRAM (not Data) icon.  The requested info will be at HELP, About Quicken.
