How to transfer data from iMac (OS 19.10.5) Quicken Essentials V. 1.7.1 to new Quicken (Windows)

I just purchased the new version of Quicken for my PC and would like to transfer the data from Quicken Essentials version 1.7.1 on my old iMax (OS X Yosemite version 10.10.5). I'm unable to upgrade the OS software. I created a backup with Quicken Essentials, but the new verison of Quicken doesn't read the plist files.

    Back in Quicken Essentials, you need to go to File:Export:To QXF. (I am going from memory here as I cannot run 1.7.1 on my current machine.)

    Move this file over to your PC.

    In Quicken for Windows, you will want to create a new blank file, and import your QXF file into that.
