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. caenleve@yahoo.com

Gnucash is a full ledger system, and has features geared towards small businesses.

Version 5.4 is not shutting down fully when the application is closed. The process continues running in the background and must be killed manually.

Killing it manually causes a warning from the PortableApps launcher the next time you launch it stating that the app was not closed properly.

I rolled back to 5.3, which does not have this problem.

I don’t see a way to get older versions from their website, so thankfully I kept a backup.

I'm getting an error with this: "TakeStock2 was unable to start. An error occured while opening the TakeStock database. Unable to read beyond the end of the stream." This is the same TakeStock database that TakeStock has just created on first run, so it seems something must be broken.

@olliebean, this (bug 183) has been fixed in TS 2 Release 53. Please see:
