I like this program a lot. Unfortunately it has stopped working on my W7 32bit computer. This has happened befor but then I could get it to work again by running it under XP SP3 compatibility mode, but now nothing helps to get it to work again. This is precisely the kind of software ons does NOT want to stop working. All my data are in the database and I cannot reach it anymore.

One could add that there is a version by PortableApps that AFAIK handles the registry entries.

I have an example... I've been working with GnuCash since a couple of months; before that I used to keep my personal accounting using Excel, but after two years I found some drawbacks. If you want the example just write me.

Ok im sorry, but how can software that is classed as freeware be such when certain functions cease until money is paid (called a donation) to enable its original functionality? Its either freeware or not.

SYSTEM on 2013-02-21 06:28

@rogerthedodger: I changed the license type to donationware. Is it better now?

I am Baas on 2013-02-22 12:12

License says it's free to use/distribute... reverting to License=Freeware. There was already a note about the limitation in the description above.
