QDF is a proprietary Quicken format and other software products cannot read the data. It is necessary to use Quicken itself to export the data in a more universal format and this is generally the QIF format, which contains raw transaction information.
How to import QIF files into Moneydance is discussed in a number of knowledge base articles at:
Thanks, to summarize a long story, I was running Quicken on a Vista machine. I wanted to run new software that would NOT run on Vista. So, I bought a machine with Win 10 installed and moved my hard drives to the new machine. Then Vista Quicken would not work on Win 10. I did this before knowing that I needed to use Quicken export to convert my data for use with a Q alternative. I had bought a Q2015 but never installed it. Now, "install" stops me when I must register my software--no around the registration process that I could find. I never liked the way Q pushed me to update every year.
Now, should I try to move hard drives and get the Vista Quicken to work again, or Get my Q2015 to work, or buy a new version of Q and hope it will work with my old .qdf?
Thanks again. Hal

No surprise that Q2015 would not register, Q would want an upgrade fee at the very least.
I'm not in the US so have no idea if Quicken offer a trial period for their software, I would personally like to avoid paying them more if I possibly could, so as a first step I would probably try to get Vista working again.
