    Migrate Quicken 2009 to Win10


    I was able to load Quicken 2009 on my Win10 sys and it seems to work but I can't migrate the data from my XP sys to my Win10 sys. I do a backup on the XP sys and try to restore it on the Win10 sys but it says the file is invalid. Anybody been successful with this or have any suggestion? Thanks

    Are you backing up Quicken and restoring or copying your .qdf file over. Can't help with 2009 but Quicken 2014 worked fine for me by just copying my data file over.

    What are the files that have to be moved? Is it only a (one?) database file? Or is there more to do?

    I tried using Quicken Backup and then Restore on the Win10 sys. I'll try just copying the .qdf file.

    I just have one database file and am just trying to migrate that one file.

    I was using a different version of Quicken on the Win10 sys, loaded the correct version and all is well now. Thanks for your help.

    Yeah...that could also have caused the trouble.

    Glad to hear that it's working!
