    When I start quicken today, it wants an id and pw but the requesting panel is blank with no obvious entry fields. Is this Windows 11 ""feature" for the new year? [Removed-Personal information]. Thank you.

    I got the same problem yesterday. The data file is corrupt. you have to go back to a previous backup. I am curious if others are using OneDrive User data backups like I am and that is the cause of the corruption. I was able to go back a few minutes using file history in OneDrive and restore the file instead of using my week old Quicken backup. I called in to report mine. Recommend you do the same. Quicken support says this is happening again to several people and they are tracking on 9107447
