Re-Installing Quicken 2017 On New Computer - Looks Like It's being Blocked ?

WFS57 Member

After installing v2017 on a new computer, I'm unable to open my data file.

(1) if I turn off my internet access, then open my data file, I can see my data displayed for a few seconds, then the screen goes blank.

(2) I can still run the 'tools' to validate my file - so I know it's opened it.

It appears that once v2017 communicates with the quicken server, it deliberately stops my data bein displayed .. Has anyone found a work around…

    You need to copy the QUICKEN.INI in C:\ProgramData\Intuit\Quicken\Config\ from the old Quicken installation.

    (strange - I can't see my reply - so I'll re-reply)

    IT WORKED - Thanks.

    I tried that previously. But it would only open, after I had removed the password from my 'old' data file.

    Thanks again….

    I tried that previously, but my 'OLD' file was password protected.

    When I removed the password from my 'old' data file, and copied it over to my new machine, it opened.

    Thank you…
