I have done as suggested but get the error message "MFC70.DLL is missing"
Re -boot your pc. Go to start, programs, accesories and scroll down to windows explorer. dble click on your hard drive.
Expand programs x86
Find quicken - dble click on it
This will expand all the quicken files.
Scroll down to near the end and find the file "qw" ( not QW)
Dble click on this and it should open quicken
now close the expanded quicken folder so there is just the list of programs.
Right click on "quicken2 and select "send to" and left click on desktop create shortcut.
now close all windows and find the icon on your desktop and dble click.
It should open quicken
Hope this helps
