Potential Installation Issues

  • Other installation programs can run when you try to install QuickFile. Sometimes a program will leave behind a "Setup.exe" file in your download or temporary directory. If present, delete the setup.exe file and rerun the QuickFile install program.
  • Delete all temporary files and cookies as an extra precaution before you download QuickFile. Temporary files and cookies can hang up the installation of QuickFile.
  • QuickFile is not certified to run on non-Windows machines. The program uses certain calls to Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) which most likely will not execute properly on a non-Windows operating system, although some versions of the Windows emulator might allow the program to run. This is not a supported configuration, so we cannot assist you if any problems are encountered.
  • When starting QuickFile, the message "not running the most recent version" may display. This may be a firewall issue on your computer. Change your firewall and anti-virus software settings to allow the QuickFile program to download files from our read–only server. Add https://www.twc.state.tx.us as a trusted site to your firewall, anti–virus software and Internet Explorer as a trusted site.
