Unable to open old Quicken 2007 file - Requires sign in with old credentials(?)

I have an old Quicken file (circa 2007) that I'd like to open. However, when I do so it asks me to sign in, but the "Quicken ID (email address)" field is pre-filled with what I suspect is my old Intuit username - and it cannot be edited.
So I tried clicking on "Create Account" - but the email address field is cannot be entered there, either. (It seems I might be able to create a new account using a mobile phone number, but I haven't tried that, yet).
My question: Is this a known bug? Is there a way to "fix" an old file so that it has proper credentials?
Thanks.

    Thank you! I completely missed the tiny text at the bottom that offered the option to sign in as a different user. I'm in now and all is good!
