I'm ready to give up, go buy Quicken 2017, go back and get that old backup and manually re-enter all the new (since that backup) data again. The big clue to me was the new installation PLUS the fact you tell us it won't update.
So I knew what she was trying to have me accomplish so I started at it again only I just copied a few years worth of data at a time and I got everything copied over to the new account.
This was a VISA account and it is linked to my checking account for the payments so when I went to look at the checking account is was something like 90k in the red.
I contacted Quicken for support and the nice lady started having me try all kinds of things. Then she had me create a new account and told me how to copy all the transactions from the old (problem) account into the new account.
While doing that, after over an hour on chat with her, the whole Quicken program and the chat window crashed, possibly because she had me copy too much data at once.
Installed Quicken and it appeared to run the updates successfully.
Reloaded latest backup file and started using it again.
It took me two days to do it last time so I'm not looking forward to it. Without those patches, Quicken may indeed be broke on a fresh install.
I don't want to open yet another discussion about Quicken pushing users to new versions like this.
I missed 2014 but it seems that was the version that first required an Intuit ID and password.
I could wonder if that happened after a patch and the suggestion to check into that is all you need.
As well, Quicken will make automatic backups outside of what you do on your own or when prompted so look for those (folder may vary) and see if there's one from an earlier date when you knew all was well.
