Common Fixes for Password Errors

  1. If the password contains numbers, be sure the keyboard Num Lock is turned on.
  2. Be sure the Caps Lock key is not on, and then retype the password, being careful to use the correct capitalization. Quicken passwords are case-sensitive.
  3. Try all passwords you may have used for Quicken files or for other password-protected functions

Restore a Backup If the common password fixes did not work, consider restoring a Quicken backup if you made a backup copy of the file before adding the password. You will need to manually re-enter any data that you added to the password protected file since the backup. To safely restore the backup without overwriting your existing (password-protected) file:
  1. Move the password protected Quicken file to a different or new directory (folder) on your hard disk. This leaves the password protected file untouched in case you recall the password later or need to send it to Intuit for password removal.
  2. Restore the backup (Quicken File menu >> Restore) and manually reenter any data needed to update the file. You may choose a new Quicken file password that is easier to remember.

Restore a Quicken Automatic Backup File If you do not have your own backup file, try restoring an automatic backup which Quicken makes every seven days. If you put a password on your data file recently, the password may not be on this backup copy of your data. Quicken places automatic backups in the BACKUP folder, which you´ll find in the same folder as your data file.
  1. If you haven't already, move the password-protected Quicken file to a different or new directory (folder) on your hard disk in case you recall the password later or need to send it to Intuit for password removal.
  2. Choose the most recent backup file from the BACKUP folder that you think doesn't have the password protection: (Quicken File menu >> Open >> Data folder >> BACKUP folder) If you've used Quicken for awhile, you will most likely see a number of Quicken automatic backup files.
  3. If the file opens, copy it (Quicken File menu >> File Operations >> Copy) to the folder where you usually keep your data. Manually reenter any data needed to update the file.
Consider Creating a New File If your file doesn't contain a lot of information, you may want to consider creating a new file and reentering the data. In some cases, reentering the data may be quicker and easier.
  1. If necessary, Click Cancel in the Quicken Password window.
  2. From the Quicken File menu, choose New.
  3. Enter a filename, and then click OK.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the New User Setup.
Have Intuit Remove the Password If the file contains critical information or must be immediately accessed, consider having Intuit remove the password from your file. You will need to send a copy of your data file to Intuit Data Services ( ) for password removal, which is a strictly confidential procedure. Password removal done by Intuit Data Services costs $9.95 per file.

Buy a different software. Maybe then Quicken will fix this software problem.

I just bought Quicken 2011. I tried all the proposed fixes and none have worked. If I don't find a solution soon, I will have to buy a product that works.

Quicken launcher has stopped working, how do I

This will occur if you have any very long security symbols -- it happened to me when I entered some of the new option symbols which can run 20 characters or more. I did not check to see exactly how long they can be but editing the security list and reducing them to 15 characters or less solved the problem.

Quicken 2009 won't load any more. using windows vista.

Ok, this basically means the ini file is corrupted normally. What you'll have to do is either reinstall quicken 2009 or try a repair on it. You can also manually go to c:\Program Files\Quicken\qw.exe and see if the shortcut is bad that you have been using. If you don't have the disk, go to start, settings control panel, add remove programs or programs and features. Locate the program. Right click on it, click change. Then check the feature that gives you the option to repair the software. BACKUP quicken files if they aren't on a disk.
