All right andi5, I tried your suggestion and got the same results. I
did find something interesting, thought.
I tried installing one of the binary packages, and it installed
successfully. However, when I try to start the app, a DOS windows opens
with the following text:
This is a development version. It may or may not work.
Report bugs and other problems to gnucash-devel at gnucash.org.
You can also lookup and file bug reports at http://bugzilla.gnome.org
The last stable version was GnuCash 2.0.3
The next stable version will be GnuCash 2.2
This windows hangs for as long as I leave it. I checked the processes
that were spawned by the gnucash-bin.exe process in Process Explorer,
and I see that the gconfd-2.exe process is there. The following command
was used to execute it:
"C:/Program Files/gnucash/libexec\gconfd-2.exe" 4
Ok, so my trouble seems to be with the gconfd-2.exe binary, whether it's
under the "C:\Program Files\gnucash\libexec" dir or the
"/c/soft/gnome/libexec/gconfd-2.exe". It just hangs every time its
So my next question is, does anyone know what do I do next to
troubleshoot this issue? I've tried poking around the process using
Process Explorer (from Sysinternals), but I didn't see anything that
really stood out. What can I try?
Thanks again to everyone for their help!
