Dear Client,

I am sorry to hear about that problem. My name is Lorenz Vauck, and I am a tech expert with 19 years of experience.

Stuart is correct, old Quicken versions do usually not work on Windows 10 anymore. However, what is the exact error you are getting when it is "not accepting your information"?
