I downloaded GnuCash and ran it on my USB key, setting up a few accounts but not yet entering data. I've tried to run it again and it keeps crashing now. It appears to be gnucash-bin.exe that crashes. Task manager shows GnuCash Portable running, then gnucash-bin.exe and then not one but two copies of gconfd-2.exe. There are 3 error messages:
1) Unspecified fatal error encountered, aborting
2) This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for more information. (Note: the heading for the 2nd error box is "Micro Soft Visual C++ Runtime Library")
3) gnucash-bin.exe has ceased to function
I was able to install the Linux version on my Asus EEE PC without problems and it runs there with no problems. I was hoping to be able to run it on both machines and sync the data.
I've also tried running it on my laptop's hard drive and have the same crash problem there as on the USB key. I've tried uninstalling the software and reinstalling it to no avail.
Can anyone suggest why it is now crashing having run once.
