Quicken crashes

I just installed the latest update for Quicken Basic for windows and now when I start Quicken it immediately crashes. A computer reboot did not solve the problem.

    Quicken crashes, hangs or loops at startup?

    Please try this:

    • Reboot Windows.
    • Close Quicken (or do not start it at all).
    • Use Windows File Explorer to locate and rename your current Quicken data file. For example, if it's called Qdata.QDF rename it to QdataX.QDF
      Usually your file is located in your C:\Users\_your_username_\Documents\Quicken folder.
    • Having done that start Quicken as usual from the Start Menu or Desktop Quicken icon.
      If Quicken cannot find your current data file during startup it should just simply load the program and give you either a nearly blank menu screen or one that has options to start as new user, restore from backup, etc.
    • If you get to this point without Quicken crashing
      • click on File in the Menu bar. Select the Validate function. Select the renamed Quicken data file and see if Quicken can access and repair it.
      • If the data file is beyond repair, try to restore your data file from the most recent Manual or Automatic backup. Go back to restoring successively older backups until you find a file that works

    also - if it will not start - to help us get the version level you are running -
    Under Windows file explorer - open your C drive
    --> Program files (86) --> Quicken --> scroll to - QW.exe - Right Click --> click Properties & Details
    This happens to be for my Quicken R38.30 system.
