    Quicken Personal 2012 is not a US version if I recall correctly.
    What country?
    That will determine what you choices of how to do it are.
    -splasher  using Q since 1996 -  Subscription  -  Win10
    -also older versions as needed for testing

    Edit: Australia! Great country, but my original answer was geared for the US.

    To see if the US version of Quicken will read/convert your data file, you could start with QW2013 available here, https://www.quicken.com/support/converting-your-data-quicken-windows .
    If that works, then you could purchase subscription Quicken (current version) from Amazon (probably).  You will want Deluxe at a minimum, since Starter goes into a READ-ONLY mode when the subscription expires.

    Starter version also doesn't support multiple currency (as in Australia dollar).

    And please note that no matter what US version you end up with none of them would allow for any of the online services including downloading transactions from Australian financial institutions.  You would have to manual enter transactions or maybe import a QIF file.  Quicken 2013 US would probably be better than the Subscription/current version for that use case.
