I can't open my Quicken on my Windows 7 computer. Will upgrading to a new version of Quicken solve this or do I need a newer computer?

    I guess we need some more details about the situation -
    Was it working, and now just stopped ?
    or - is this the first time you have tried it ?
    or - ??
    And does the Quicken program start - but will not open the data file ?

    You should not need to upgrade to a new version of Quicken solve this or need a newer computer.

    Press and hold the Ctrl key when you open Quicken.  Does Quicken remain open or appear in the Windows taskbar?

  • I tried to open holding the control key but it wouldn't open the data file.
    It was working and just stopped after an electric outage.
    A computer tech looked at it and tried everything Quicken suggested and said I needed to contact Intuit to see what my options were.

    So, the Quicken program is fine.  I suggest you restore a recent backup of the Quicken file.
