    The desktop is not the target and the folder has nothing in it that
    Windows can open.

    From a previous post:

    - If you are talkiing about Q3.DIR, Quicken doesn't think it
    - belongs on your desktop, it thinks it belongs in the folder you
    - "Start In"; just alter the properties of your Quicken desktop
    - icon to "Start In" a folder other than the desktop (other than
    - blank); your Quicken data folder would be one choice.
