Running windows vista service pack 2 but quicken 2014 won't open

One solution would be to run it pretending your Vista is XP. I have seen it done but as I have no Vista machine, I cannot tell you the steps. Search for running Vista in XP mode - once you have managed that, try installing the software.
The second solution would be to open a virtual machine on Vista and running that as an XP machine. Again, I have seen it done.

Try the links I have added below.

The problem I had was with Quickbooks, not Quicken, but the principle is the same and worth a try. Good luck.

Had the xp screen open. Opened my documents. Tried to drag quicken files to mac, which I do all time to back it up. Realized it wasn't dragging so dragged back to the quicken file. Now screen is frozen....

Simply Hard Reset it, IE: Turn Power Off and On. This should resolve the problem. Any damage, problems, have already occured, but a re-boot should fix it, at least it will return it back to a working desktop.

Error Copying old c: drive w/Ghost 9

Do a disk defrag on the source drive. If that doesn't work, you may have a virus on your source drive and norton ghost is catching before getting on your destination drive.

My defrag program says it is unable to gain access to selected drive. It says another process may have the drive locked???

you need to close all open programs and reboot before you defrag
if you want a clean reboot go to start remove all programs from the startup file so nothing is in the background, if McAfee is in your start up file, it will prevent you from a complete defrag
start/all programs/startup click and drag each file in the startup back to all programs and then do a new reboot
