The version of payroll will not upgrade your version 18 database. Please refer to the documentation supplied with the software for the correct procedure. After clicking OK on this screen, another message comes along telling me that "the data file is either corrupt or not a valid Reckon Payroll data file. Please select another file to open or click Cancel to exit quicken." I choose the sample file, as it seems to not be able to read the other files and the program opens up, but it is a warning that I must register the software in order to keep using it. It is already registered, and when I try to continue it just closes down. I have followed the guide I found on community from last year to correct it and still cannot get past the registration screen, our product is registered and then it just closes down.
