Need fix for Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error


  • I am using Windows 7 64 bit. After 3 months of daily use when I now try to load Corel QuattroPro 12 (32 bit) I get the following message:

    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    Runtime Error!

    Program: ...ogram Files (x86)\WordPerfect Office 12\Programs\QPW.exe

    abnormal program termination


    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling QuattroPro but no joy.  How do I overcome this problem?

  • please download visual c++ redistributable package from here

    if doesn't solve you need to uninstall the software using revo uninstaller

    and if error is still there do the following and it should solve your issues.

      • Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Run.
      • In the open window, type regedit and click OK.
      • Choose the following path HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Corel\User Assistant\12\Recent Work\Quattro Pro\
      • Right click on the Quattro Pro key, select delete.
      • Say yes when prompted to delete the key.
      • Close the Registry Editor
      • Launch Quattro Pro

      let us know how it worked out for you.

  • Word perfect itself did not exhibit the same problem.

    The Solution:

    I had downloaded the visual C++ redistribution package. It did not help.

    I downloaded the revo uninstaller and ran it. I found Quatro Pro under WordPerfect 11 Suite and selected Repair. I ran the repair, it required the program disc. It repaired Quatro Pro. 

    Thank yo so very much for your help.
