Quicken is crashing after I enter password - recently updated Quicken

When I enter by username and password in Quicken for Windows (Subscription) Quicken crashes. I updated Quicken several days ago. I have restarted my computer and this has not fixed the problem. Suggestions?

    Thank you @AC0413735259

    First I would try updating your Quicken to the latest version release R25.21 as you may currently still be on R25.18.

    You can do this by going to Help > Check for updates

    If that does not resolve the issue then, I would try validating your data file.

    Follow the steps below:

    First, of course, save a backup if you haven't already, then--
    File > File Operations > Validate & Repair > Validate File > Ok

    Once the validation has been completed-- You will close Quicken, wait at least 5 seconds, then reopen it and try signing in again to see if you can so successfully without the program crashing.

    You can also try super validating the file, which is done by following the same steps as above, except you will hold "Ctrl + Shift" on your keyboard when clicking on "Validate and Repair".

    Hope this helps!

  • The problem is that I can't get to any of those parts of Quicken. As soon as I put the password in, Quicken crashes and I can't get to Help or to the File drop down. Should I just reload the version of Quicken that I renewed in Nov 2019
  • That worked. Thank you
    I uninstalled and reinstalled and it is now working. Thank you
