Congratulations Shawn on your first app release. And thanks a lot for all your hard work on this, I know it wasn't an easy one. Smile

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Hooray for Shawn!

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

Yea, you did awesome on this. I am seriously so glad to see all your hard work released.

Congrats Shawn!!

Just wondering, why didn't you use the same image in the splash that is used for the icon?

The icon was available as an SVG, so resizing it would be easy. I've done it already, and the result is here. I do not take credit for creating this image, I simply resized it.

That was me. I couldn't find it anywhere as an SVG or bigger than 48px so I made it based on the other graphics in GnuCash. Why didn't you bring this up when it was posted as a pre-release two weeks ago? Sad It's too late now.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I was gonna say something. I posted in one of the GnuCash Portable topic a while back with a link to the SVG. I just assumed you liked that one better for some reason, so I didn't question. Smile

Same here, I thought you'd seen the SVG linked before and decided against it. If you want to redo the splash with the SVG version I'll save it for the next release.

I am sure it was worth it.

Terrific! another portable app!..but this one worries me a goes like this...I really have no idea about ports, and ma probably holding the wrong end of the stick here, but when I run GNUcash portable it 'requires' access to port 1060 on startup and port 1072 on closedown. If I don't give it access to this on startup, it ends with some obscure runtime error. On closedown it seems to want access to port 1072.
On starting Gnucash portable my firewall says something like
do you want the following access: GNUcash -bin.exe localhost port 1060
..and on exit
do you want the following access: GConf -2.exe localhost port 1072

This makes me suspicious....and probably for no good reason, so sorry if I sound distrustful, it's just that most everything else I use does not require such access. Would you care to put my mind at rest on this one? i run Windows XP pro and an old free version of the kerio firewall.

As always, please direct all support questions to the forums so people can see the question and then easily find it with the search feature once answered.

...I thought that was what I was doing...obviously least I did not ask whether it will run on Windows Mobile...coz I see you've answer that question lots of times too and I might have got a stronger reply ;-)). Thanks for your patience!

This is similar to Quicken, but open soucrse, right? If so, my dad will LOVE this!

It's similar to Quicken or MS Money, although admittedly not quite as user friendly. It's more powerful in several ways to make up for that, though. Smile

I migrated to GnuCash over a year ago, and I love it.

But I was overjoyed when I saw it as a portable app.

Now I am truly unshackled from my machine.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
