Quicken looking for quicken.msi when I click on existing QDF file

mwlahn Member ✭✭
I have two QDF files that I have shortcutted to my desktop on Windows 10. Until today when I click on the shortcut the file has been opening correctly in Quicken, however, as of today I get a message "Please wait while Quicken is configured" and then a message that says it can't find the file "C:\Users\mwlah\AppData\Local\Temp\pft514C.tmp\DISK1\Quicken.msi". and it won't open the file.
However, if I open Quicken first, then select the file, everything opens just fine. This is the same for both QDF files.
Any ideas what changed and/or how to fix it?
