Quicken 2008 won't load

I have had Quicken 2008 Deluxe on my computer for the past year. It just stopped working, wouldn't load. I uninstalled it completely and reinstalled it. After installation it goes to quicken website and upgrades to current verion. The program will then start, however once you shut it down it won't start again. The quicken launch screen flashes but thats it. No error message.

I have a Dell Inspirion 9400 Laptop running Vista Home Premium.

HELP!!!

    Does Quicken show up in your process list or application list via task manager?

Sometimes a shortcut gets corrupted. Locate where quicken is located on your harddrive, typically it will be under c:\program files\intuit\ Then look for the launcher. It will end with .exe and make a new shortcut. You can first try double clicking on the file to see if it opens for you before making the shortcut.

If that doesn't work something else may have gotten corrupted and you may have to reinstall the program. I haven't used quicken for a few years so I can't guarentee this but I would check it out: -- Before reinstalling Quicken, if you find you have to, look for where your data files are stored. Unless you've specified otherwise it will probably be somewhere under your User Name in a folder. Rename that folder so it doesn't get overwritten when it reinstalls. Then once it is reinstalled you'll find it made a new folder with the name of the one you just reinstalled. Then it is just a matter of putting the old data in again, hopefully. Not all programs will work that way but many will so you won't loose whatever data you have. Hopefully just making a new shortcut is all you will need to do.

Quicken won't load


Your data file name is too long.  This is from the Quicken Support website:

Quicken Launcher has stopped working, or encountered an error and needs to close when backing up or closing data file
Updated: 02/05/2009 Answer ID: 7273

This error may occur when backing up or closing your data file, if the file name is excessively long or if the file path exceeds 250 characters.




To resolve this issue, make sure your data file is saved to this location (if not, move it there):


Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\Quicken
Vista: C:\Users\username\Documents\Quicken


If your file already resides in the above location, shorten the file name by renaming it to 8 characters or less. Avoid using in the file name.

I had the same problem with my program, I shortened the name and it launched.

I bought Quicken 99 (basic) when it came out. I installed and re-installed it succesfully up to Windows XP until this year. This past month the icon dissapeared from my desktop and this past week, when I...


You could search the WWW for that file ... I think your best course of action is to get a good back up - both on a hard drive and on a cd or dvd of your quicken file. Save your file under a second name also (see below). Get 2010 version, which they started advertising to Quicken users about 2 weeks ago for $78.00. Load the software then tell Quicken to load your file.

BE ADVISED - the copy of your file on your hard drive will be over written when it converts to the new Quicken. That is the reason you save as another name. The new copy will not run on your Quicken 99 - however, you still have 99, right? and you have the copy under another name to run on that, right?

So you should be in good shape either way.

I think your real 15 year record is that you used it for so long!

Tell me, did I just answer another Quicken question for you here?

Thanks

Quicken 2009 won't load any more. using windows vista.


Ok, this basically means the ini file is corrupted normally. What you'll have to do is either reinstall quicken 2009 or try a repair on it. You can also manually go to c:\Program Files\Quicken\qw.exe and see if the shortcut is bad that you have been using. If you don't have the disk, go to start, settings control panel, add remove programs or programs and features. Locate the program. Right click on it, click change. Then check the feature that gives you the option to repair the software. BACKUP quicken files if they aren't on a disk.

Find the saved file. Right-click on the data file and left-click on properties. Then select the security tab to see permissions. Alternatively, give yourself administrator privileges to open the file.

And did you reinstall? Perhaps a trip to Intuits website to see if indeed there is a patch for such a problem. I find that Quicken often has updates and patches. Here is the site for support:
