Dear List Members,
I wish to get GNUcash running under the Microsoft Vista operating system.
It was running well under Microsoft XP on my old computer but I upgraded to a new computer with Vista and i have not been able to get it working since.
The precompiled 2.2.1 executable runs very slowly under Vista.
I have downloaded and installed msys into C:\\soft\\msys and it works.
I have used svn to put the packaging dir into C:\\soft\\msys\\home\\Stephen\\GNUCash\\Packaging
In defaults.sh I changed the line to
set_default GLOBAL_DIR c:\\soft\\msys\\home\\Stephen\\GNUCash
as I could not seem to do it via the custom.sh file.
What do I put in the custom.sh file to change the GLOBAL_DIR value?
I have been switching between an admin shell and user shell to install the build enviroment by running install.sh in the Packing directory specified above. When one shell bombed out the other worked a bit more. It has to do with Vista's User Access Control technology.
I have got down to installing autoconf by this butchering method.
In doing so executable files have been going into 3 locations namely
I have used synch toy to keep this three directorys the same.
How do I tell install.sh to put them all in the same directory?
Any further suggestions as to what to do will be greatly appreciated.
Yours Sincerely Stephen Grant brown
