Unable to initialize Quicken run-time component!

Frustrated165 Member
I have been a Quicken user for over 20 years and I have never been this frustrated! I decided to upgrade to the subscription platform to get the latest update. I downloaded and installed the latest Quicken Canada for Windows file and I keep getting a run-time component pop-up window. I contacted Quicken support and they told me it was an issue with my Windows 10. I contacted Microsoft, they were very helpful and checked that my Windows and required software were all up-to-date. I am going to request my refund from Quicken and install an old version of Microsoft Money... I'm done with INTUIT!!!!

    There appears to be a couple of major bugs in the recent R31.xx rollout,
    along with some internal bug even affecting R30.xx users.

    Did you get something like this - or something else ?

  • Below is the pop-up I get. I contacted Quicken support on two occasions and both times they told me it was a Windows 10 issue and that I should call a local IT specialist...

    I would suggest using QCleanUI to remove Quicken, restart Windows and then download the installation file from quicken.ca to reinstall.


    FWIW, Intuit no longer owns Quicken.

  • Thanks Greg_the_Geek. I already tried QCleanUI a few times and I still get the same pop-up Window regarding run-time components. I'm at a loss. I have never had issues like this installing software. I will try to see if I can install an older stand-alone version of Quicken to see if I can get it to work.

    Just out of curiosity, what version of Windows are you using? Also, you might try creating a new Windows user account and run Quicken from there.

  • I'm using Windows 10 Home and I did exactly what you are proposing and still got the same pop-up error. I have never seen this with any other software.

    Just for the record Intuit sold Quicken years ago.  The new company is Quicken Inc.

    Also you seem to have the terrible luck of trying to install Quicken when a problem was just recently introduced, and they are trying to work through a solution.
