I would suggest uninstalling Quicken, install from your Quicken 2016 CD with your internet connection disabled. Install the Quicken 2016 R19.5 Mondo patch. Copt the Config folder from C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Quicken\ from the Windows 10 computer to the Windows 11 on and then trying Quicken.
I would try replacing the QUICKEN.INI in C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Quicken\Config\ before replacing the whole Config folder. I don't believe the is a QUICKEN.INI file in the Windows folder.
Install the x86 version of this:
There shouldn't be a quicken.ini in C:\Windows.
That's the Quicken 2016 R19.5 Mondo patch.
No, just install the R19.5 Mondo patch
You need download/install this Visual C++ from my previous
No, it won't
MSVCP120.DLL is a Windows Dynamic Link Library that's part of the Visual C++ Redistributable Package. Just run the installation program to get everything where it belongs.
Thank you guys for these thread.
Unfortunatelly I'm understood that I'm in **** now with all ages of my stored finances history :( Thanks Quicken….
Got few more questions to conclude. I haven't backup of quicken.ini
#1 In theory that would be a license violation. One person's license isn't transferable to another.
#2a Quicken 2013 can't read a Quicken 2017 data file, so the only way to go back to Quicken 2013 would be to export a QIF file and import that into Quicken 2013. Since you can't open your data file in Quicken 2017 to do that export then only way to do the export would be to pay for Quicken Subscription, do the export and then return it for a refund. #2b, yes that is another way to do it.
Here is some information on the problems you might encounter doing the QIF export/import:
#1 I tried this with the config.ini from my brother-in-law and it didn't work for me.
-splasher using Q continuously since 1996
- Subscription Quicken - Win11 and QW2013 - Win11

Thank you, guys. This would be at least some options to work with my old data and start thinking about quicken alternatives. I'll not pay any penny anymore to this organization….
Btw maybe someone know if there are some alternative applications where possible to some kind of transfer data from quicken?
Last one question. Is Quicken 2013 is the only one option to rollback and it is the latest version which can be used without that login issue? Or for example Quicken 2015 also hasn't this issue? I mean what is the latest version of Quicken can be used with approach to convert data file (with subscription) and rollback to the previous version?
@OneMoreUser Quicken 2013 is the last version that doesn't use a Quicken Id, that is why it is the suggested version to rollback to for the people that don't want to use Quicken Subscription. And to register any version that has a Quicken Id requires that it be logged in, which is now being blocked by the Quicken servers for any version other than Quicken Subscription. Copying the Quicken.ini file from a working machine basically "registers it", and therefore bypasses the need to login to the Quicken Id. So, any "rollback" for anyone that doesn't have a working Quicken.ini file would have to be install Quicken Subscription, export to QIF, and import into Quicken 2013 or earlier. Note because there is a 30 day refund on Quicken Subscription one might purchase it, do the QIF export/import and then get their money back.
And here is some information about importing:
@MichaelConn99 Thank you! Your process worked for me after a few modifications, because I had already installed and opened 2017.
Here's what I did:
Your Step (1)
(1a) Uninstall Quicken 2017. Delete any Intuit or Quicken folder left behind in ProgramData. Also, I deleted the Intuit folder in Program Files (x86)\Common Files (Not sure if that was necessary, but I did it). Removed deleted files from Recycle Bin.
(1b) Disconnected the computer from the internet (Airplane Mode). Rebooted the computer.
Your Step (2) but I DID NOT turn off Antivirus and Firewall.
Proceeded with steps 3 - 5.
While using Quicken 2017, it froze right in the middle of recording a couple transactions. After finding these two comments, it finally worked! I had to use my husband's config files because I think mine were somehow corrupted. We copied the config files and used the downloaded patch all while being disconnected to the internet. We have now backed up the original config files and the mondo QW2017R20.5 patch onto a thumb drive to make sure we have them handy, and we turned off all Windows automatic updates. It does tick me off that Quicken is trying to hold us captive to their "subscription" when we purchased the software and don't want the monthly costs. Thank you for these helpful ideas!
@jreimann, FWIW, you purchased a license to use Quicken 2017. You agreed to the EULA when you installed the software that Quicken could discontinue services after the expiration date.
