TaxAct Estates and Trusts (Downloaded Version) Problem Loading Return

Post by geobrick » Sun Mar 11, 2018 4:13 pm

Has anyone else experienced this error?
"TaxAct Estates and Trusts does not support opening returns other than the default return c:\Users\username\folder\2017 Estates and Trusts Tax Return.te7)."

Maybe it's that I changed the file name but I've been using the renamed file without a problem. I get the error when open TaxAct and the 1041 return was the last one I saved (or I try to open TaxAct by double clicking the file itself). I can only get it to load if I first open a 1040 return by selecting "open an existing return" and selecting one of the 1040 returns I've started. Then after that opens, I can click on 'File' and select 'Open a Return...". Then I can select the suposed problem file and it opens fine.
