Quicken fails to launch when started.

I just upgraded to the new Quicken premier membership and now Quicken fails when I try to open it. It very briefly will show my normal accounts screen but then it looks like it is trying to popup a Quicken ID log in page when it dies. It just brings up a bug reporting utility after it dies.

    If you haven't rebooted Windows since you installed the latest software update, please do so now and then try Quicken again.

    Still not working?

    Ok. Followed the directions and downloaded the latest patch. Updated to latest 26.17 version. Launched Quicken - failed again. Performed reboot of the PC; Launch Quicken - failed again. Always at the step where it appears to want to collect my Quicken ID credentials.

    Unable to perform any of the file validation tasks since Quicken will not launch.
