Hi, I'm Robert and I'll be helping you with your financial software question.

if you did not put a password ***** the data file it is probably quicken demanding that you put in the intuit password ***** you used when you registered the account and/or purchased the software. Quicken has begun asking for that it seems randomly. I am not sure why. Maybe to prevent piracy. Maybe just because they are trying to get people to password ***** with the intuit ID instead of their own password ***** convenience sake. But it is very inconvenient

If you go to this link

https://login.quicken.com/recovery.html?

it will run you through recovering that password.

If that gives you problems you will have to either make a new intuit id or speak with quicken directly. They are a pain to get ahold of but pretty good on this one issue.
