    Have you followed the article that @Quicken Paloma gave, as in this section:

    If so exactly what errors/messages are you getting?

    Please note you can expect lots of errors if you have investment accounts in your Quicken Mac file since Quicken Windows doesn't import investment transactions from the .QXF file.

    Doesn't prompt you to open a log file before you get that error message?
    That might have some clues of what is going on.
    You should also be able to get that log file by going to Help -> Log Files... -> .QXF File Import Results

    I think though it might be best to contact Quicken support, and have them screen share with you to see if they can see anything obvious.
