    Cant open quicken files

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern regarding the issue that you are facing.

    • What the exact error message you are getting?

    Please be informed that Quicken 2002 might not be compatible with Windows 10.

    I suggest you to install that program in compatibility mode and check.

    Compatibility mode runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows.

    Follow these steps to install the program in compatibility mode and check if that helps.

    a. Download the program from the manufacturer’s website.

    b. Right-click on the program setup file and click on
    ‘properties’.

    c. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box
    ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done, restart the computer.

    If the issue persists I suggest you to contact the Quicken support for further help.

    Hope this information helps you. Kindly post back with the updated issue for further assistance.



    Thank you.
