Why does Quicken keep crashing?

edited January 2020 in Investing (Windows)
This problem has been going on since buying into the online subscription over a year ago.

While reconciling investments I will have to make changes to the securities since the downloads often mismatch or amounts are incorrect.

 Crash reports have been sent NUMEROUS times, with the log and steps that I was doing when it happened.

 As I said, it is over a year and this is still happening. I have not received any confirmation that my crash reports have been received and obviously, the problem has not been resolved. I know believe that the crash reports are not looked at and are pointless to send.

 I now have to go back to a source that I have avoided, this "community" site. My hope is that maybe someone from Quicken Tech support will see this and address the issue or at least have the courtesy to respond and not from certain individuals that did not design the program.

 Thank you.

    Additional information: I edit an investment, i.e,. add info to memo field, correct the purchase of securities because they are always .01cent off, correct the purchase price. I click the save and a grey window pops up and asks if I want to save transactions, so I click yes. Crash. A quicken error report window pops up and I fill it out as I have many times, including email address. That's it. I open quicken back up and do a few more and crash. After a year, of sending reports I would think that someone would try to research the problem. I should add that it only happens with Wells Fargo investments, all others are okay, so far.

    Finally someone responded, thank you.
    I am using the 2019 Quicken Rental subscription service. I went to help and clicked on support. went to bottom to click on talk to support. Opened it up and followed the directions to save the log file in order to send, however the log file would not open to attach.

    I have uploaded the files via Quicken Support. I sent in a txt format.
    I now am having issues with the program shutting down after the recent update. It happens with one-step and when I want to look at a holding list within an investing account.

    I installed the recent subscription Update. When using one-step update or opening a holdings list within a specific account the program shuts down. No error report just shuts down, so I cannot forward any specific code.
