    On loading Quicken I get the message, "Unable to initialize Quicken run-time components. Restart Windows and try running Quicken again." I have restarted Windows twice to no avail. I need to access Quicken as soon as possible.

    Have you restarted Windows? There's been a lot of Windows 10 updates lately. If it still happens, you can use QCleanUI to uninstall/reinstall Quicken.

    After updating to the R20.15 release today I am unable to open Quicken on one of my PCs. Did not update on another so I still have access. Receive message "unable to initialize Quicken run-time components". Restarted Windows, no help. Uninstalled Quicken, ran QCleanUI.exc and reinstalled Quicken again. Still receive the same message as above. Help...Jim
