Moving to Win10 From Win7, Can't Get Q2016 to run

Good evening,

I'm trying to move my Quicken Premier 2016 program from my soon to be retired Win 7 machine to a newer Win 10 machine.

I copied the entire Quicken folder to the exact location from Win 7 to Win 10 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken" and I copied the "QUICKEN.INI" config file from Win 7 to Win 10 into the "C:\Windows" folder as was in Win 7. However, after doing so, QW still will not open in Win 10. In fact, nothing happens when I try to open it. It does however, work in Win 7.

It should be noted that I don't have the Quicken Premier 2016 CD. My original disk is the 2010 version and I upgraded to 2016 with an online download from Quicken/Intuit.

I've gone into my Quicken online account and there is no record of my purchase. I only have an email record of my purchase.

Can someone advise what I am doing wrong? What have I missed? I happen to love QW2016, I don't use any of the online features and I'm not looking to get the subscription version.

Thx in Advance,

    You would have gotten that download from Intuit for QW2016 and they stopped providing them a long time ago and Quicken, Inc doesn't provide downloads for anything but current subscription Quicken (2018+), so you are out of luck getting an "official download" here.
    The download you got at the time did not upgrade your 2010 Quicken, it was a complete replacement of it.  Have you searched your old computer for a Quicken installation .exe program?  I'm pretty sure it would be named Quicken_Premier_2016.exe, at least that is what mine was called.
