I have installed QGIS 3 in Windows 10 pro 64 bit, but it won't open the GUI. This is the error:

qgis-bin.exe aplication has stopped working

And then this:

enter image description here

Some specifications:

  • I had installed QGIS 2.18, and it ran perfectly.
  • I had installed the latest QGIS 3 under "Program Files" folder and also in the root C:.
  • I installed with OSGeo4W software and with QGIS desktop .exe, load to QGIS web page.
  • I run other software like PostgreSQL, GeoServer, GeoNetwork and ArcGIS on the PC.
  • Did you check downloaded file up with md5sum utility? – xunilk Feb 28 '18 at 21:57
  • did qgis create a mini-dump crash report? like gis.stackexchange.com/questions/234618/… – Mapperz Mar 1 '18 at 3:30
  • Have a laptop with windows 10 pro and QGIS 3.0 running (english US settings) may be a problem/bug with the spanish version? – Mapperz Mar 1 '18 at 3:32
  • Run the OSGeo4W shell and type QGIS in it. It should run QGIS 3.0. I think it's a question of path settings. – Techie_Gus Mar 1 '18 at 14:47

Good evening!!!!

Thank you all for your comments, This were very helpful to open the Qgis 3 without problem. I have done in two ways:

With the help of Mapperz, look for Qgis-rel-dev-g 7.4.0.bat inside the installation of Qgis 3 and this run. enter image description here

With the help of Techie_Gus, I can run the Qgis 3 without problems from the OSgeo4w terminal. Both forms works good.

enter image description here I don't consider the language likethe problem, if not more the path as Techie_Gus said , because I did run Qgis 3 in another session.

I also thank Xunilk for his quick response; I'll be trying to do what it says, to define the specific error.

The main problem was solved, and I could run Qgis 3, also, I think it is a path problem perhaps in the registry of W10, I will checked the environment variables.

Greetings and thank you very much.
