qw.exe - Application Error "The application failed to intialize properly (Oxc000034). click on OK to terminate the application"



Crashes or fatal errors when launching the program can be due to Program, System, or Data.  The easiest way to determine which is the cause is:

1.  Hold the Ctrl + Shift keys when clicking on the Quicken icon (I have to click once on my icon, then Ctrl + Shift + Enter, which accomplishes the same thing).  This will allow Quicken to open with no data file - just a big gray screen and only File and Help menu items available.  If Quicken still gives the same error, then the problem is not Data and you move on to...
2.  Reboot your computer into Safe Mode (and not Safe Mode with Networking), then launch Quicken as you normally would.  If you still get the same error, then you've identified a problem with the program installation.  However, if you do not get the error and Quicken opens and functions (except for online capabilities not available in regular Safe Mode) then you've identified a conflict with another program/application or driver on your system in Normal Mode.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
