Data file not opening

Long time Quicken user still on 2010. Been working fine all these years, and then all of a sudden I cannot open my data files. Launching Quicken shows the splash screen and then nothing. Trying to open a data file directly causes Windows to try to "configure" Quicken, which then fails as no installation file can be found. I tried running qw.exe from the command line to see if any errors displayed, but I get nothing. Is there any way to troubleshoot this to see what's going on?

This on Windows 10, recent updates. Thanks!

    Please take a look at this discussion:
    To run old Windows versions on Windows 10, one must have .Net Framework versions 3.5 and older enabled / installed in Windows. A recent update may have possibly turned this feature off.

    Thanks for the response, but I checked and the older versions are installed and active. So I guess it's something else happening.

    Any other suggestions for troubleshooting? Just odd that this worked for years and then suddenly stopped.

    Installing Quicken 2013 got me going again. Thanks for the responses!
