    Hello @Antonio

    Thank you for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. It sounds like you're using some VM software but it should be fairly easy for us to transfer over to the windows version. The instructions are still fairly similar as they are normally.

    1. Open your data file in Quicken Mac 2015, 2016, 2017, or the Subscription Release.
    2. Choose File > Export > Quicken Windows Transfer File (QXF)....
    3. Save the .QXF file to media that will allow you to move it to your PC, such as a thumb drive or CD/DVD. You can also move it to the windows partition if you know where exactly to locate it on the macs side.
    4. Move the media (thumb drive or CD/DVD) to your computer running Windows.
    5. Open Quicken for Windows.
    6. Choose File > New Quicken File.
    7. Select New Quicken File, click OK.
    8. Name your new data file and press OK.
    9. Choose File > Import and then select the .QXF file from your media.

    You should be able to load a thumb drive on the windows side and that'll make the file also save on that side.

    Once you get a chance try it out and see if we're able to get it over. If not we'll see what we can try next.

    Thanks,
