Error code -6147,0 when attempting to open my company file or a backup file. QB File Doctor does not correct the issue and firewall has been checked..

I have run the QB file doctor, looked at my firewall protection to ensure it is not blocking files or ports, have tried to open with earlier back up files, but I keep getting either -6147,0 or -6144, -82 error codes

The page you refer to no longer exists. I just got a new computer on warranty and the file isn't uploading? I can't go back to the old QB computer because it is fried. Why won't it let me upload the back up file?
