DW20.exe didn’t start up as I expected. I’m currently Googling for answers.
An answer here will be greatly appreciated.
It’ll save time and effort in my part so thank you in advance!
DW20.EXE – DLL Initialization Failed
The application failed to initialize because the window station is shutting down.
DW20.exe didn’t start up as I expected
Culprits for this error are usually Internet Explorer, AVG or any other antivirus programs, most probably "Office 2007-10"
It is basically an "Application Error Reporting Tool", to disable it use DWReportee value of 1 to following registry keys:
In case of "Office"
Go to Regedit.exe.
Search and click this registry link "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftOffice10.0Common"
In Edit menu, point to New and click DWORD Value.
Double click "New Value" and type "1".
Apply the settings.
Hope that works!!
