Quicken doesn't open files and show transactions

Using Quicken 2006.
Suddenly the program .exe file shrunk to 13k and lost its icon.
Who knows whatever update within the version had taken place?
So, reinstalled from CD.
Now the program is back but opening the data files is strange.
The files open OK but have no data in them.
Yet the data files seem to be of reasonable size .. like over 1MB.

Are you sure you are opening the data files you were using and not new ones the reinstall created?

Well, I'm pretty sure these are the old files.  They are stored in a particular folder.
There were no file conversions that I noticed; likely because the program version is unchanged.
So, I don't see any "new ones" that I can tell.

Well, it appears that this version of Quicken doesn't create special backup files.  Just copies of the original with .qdf it seems.  It optionally tags the filenames with the date and I do see those.
I was able to open but a single file and it has no transactions in it since some time last year.  That's the best I've been able to do.

This problem eludes any of the normal approaches .. which were suggested and I appreciate that.  So, in the end there was no direct solution.
