 Intuit recently release information on the error:

Error: QBW32.EXE – Aborting Application: QuickBooks is now terminating when working in 2013

While working in QuickBooks 2013, QuickBooks randomly crashes with error:

  • QBW32.EXE- Fatal Application Exit- Aborting Application: QuickBooks is now terminating (Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista)
  • Unrecoverable Error 02700 80318 (Windows XP only)
  • Randomly shutting down with no error message (All Windows operating systems)

quickbooks, error

Note: If the message you receive says “Connection has been lost“, this is a different issue from this Fatal Application Exit error and you will need to follow the steps in the Error: Connection has been lost article.

What you can try now

If you were aborted from QuickBooks with the Fatal Application error, you can re-open QuickBooks and continue to work.  This error appears to be generated at random and we are currently investigating.

Important: Try using the file without the Report Center open in the background to see if this helps mitigate the number of crashes that occur.
