I had a similar issue discussed here: https://community.reckon.com/reckon/topics/reckon-accounts-personal-2019-starts-the-launcher-then-stops-win10-1809-1903

Resolution was to reduce the .QIF file name from 10 characters (Kitchenman.QIF) to 8 characters (Kitchnmn.QIF).  It would appear that this restriction started to appear in or around 2018/2019 versions as I can't remember it happening with 2017 or before.

Many thanks to David Hunt for offering the solution.
