Add Acorns account getting "General error. Error in investment accounts layout" (Q Mac)

Nuzzis Member
Hello, I previously added Acorns with no problem last week. I removed it because I was getting this error checking the account for updates in Quicken. I thought it has something to do with changing my Acorns password. However, I am getting the same error re-adding it. The Acorns login credentials are fine.

Here is the full error message.

Please try again later.

    Hello @gnoinsky,

    Thank you for joining this thread to share that you are also experiencing this issue. 

    Below are some troubleshooting steps to take when presented with an FDP-101 error message. It is recommended to save a backup before proceeding (just in case). 

    First, deactivate all the accounts with the affected financial institution

    1. Open Quicken.
    2. Go to the Accounts menu and choose Hide and Show Accounts;
    3. Uncheck any accounts with this specific financial institution (FI) that are hidden in Lists;
    4. When complete, click on the account name for your account(s) in the Accounts toolbar in Quicken.
    5. Click the Settings icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
    6. Select the Downloads tab.
    7. Click on Disconnect Account.
    8. Click Done. Do this on each account with this FI. 
    9. Quit Quicken.

    Second, delete Quicken passwords from the Keychain

    1. Open Finder and go to Applications > Utilities > Keychain Access app;
    2. On the left panel in the Keychain app, set the Keychains to Login and the Category to Passwords.
    3. Find and delete any entries that show Quicken or Quicken Connect and this FI name;
    4. Quit the Keychain Access app and open Quicken.

    Third, re-add the accounts

    1. Go to Accounts > Add Account.
    2. Type the name of the financial institution and make the appropriate selection.
    3. Enter your login credentials and click Continue.
    4. When Quicken has returned all accounts discovered for this FI, very carefully LINK each of the found accounts to the appropriate account you already have setup in Quicken.

    Same issue. I followed the instructions and that didn't seem to help. I also tried an entirely new data file and that didn't work.

    Anything else we can try. This worked up until last week.

    Forgot to add.... I reported the error via the app, so all the files should be available to review.

    I am having the same issue as described above. Tried the instructions suggested. Multiple attempts are reporting issue via the applications. Still no success connecting to my Acorns account.
