I am a Quicken enthusiast and have been using Quicken 2001 - then I had an opportunity to purchase on Amazon the Quicken 2004 version.
The installation recommended removing the earlier version - which I agreed to - but now the latest version will not run because it says a DLL file is missing. The reference is MFC70.DLL. Oddly enough this problem was answered on Page 102 of PCA January 2011 (I am a subscriber) and it says to type sfc/scannow - in search on start but this did nothing.Has anyone any ideas how I may resolve please?

Thanks VoG™ for responding so quickly. I'm sorry I didn't mention that I have Windows Vista as my OS. The link you gave me appeared to be specifically for Windows XP. Would reinstalling Vista reinstall the missing DLL?

I think I must be one of the lucky ones that have got Quicken 2004 to work first time on a Win 7 64 bit PC without the need to use compatibility mode. This includes your missing dll.

I suggest you follow the instructions in Woolwell's link first, but if that fails you are welcome to contact me via the yellow envelope and I will forward the dll to you. It is 952Kb.
