Please Enter a Valid Date error

Each time I attempt to post a transaction, I receive this error. Also, the date format for all transactions looks odd to me, i.e., instead of 11/03/2022, it is formatted as Nov32022. I tried to restore a backup file, but I'm encountering the same phenomena when attempting to post to that file, as well. I am using Quicken 2012 Start-Up Edition.

Any suggestions/insight is greatly appreciated.

    Your edition of Quicken 2012

    You didn't specify the age of your computer so old software may not be compatible with a newer computer. Perhaps you should consider updating your Quicken program to the newest version.

    Quicken gets the date format from Windows. Check the Windows short date format on your computer and change the Windows short date format to mm/dd/yyyy.
