Quicken version two thousand ten version shows that you have a QDATA BACKUP-1.1.06QDF backup file.

However, you receive an ERROR message that appears stipulating that the Authentication of convert-stub.dll failed because it could not find that required file. You will want to install again that same exact version of Quicken software in order to convert your data file. What happens if installing that Quicken software again does nof fix your issue?
