Hi Stephen,
I'm keen to hear how you get on.  
To disable the network interfaces you need to go to "Control Panel\Network
Connections" and right click on each interface, choosing the "Disable"
option.  I have not investigated if all of them have to be disabled or just
the active ones.

I remember it was quite a pain getting the software to build properly under
XP, so I'm sure it will be a struggle under Vista.  Let me know if I can

Hi David,

I am attempting to load the build enviroment for gnucash under Vista.
I have having great difficulty doing it. See my other posts.
How do you disable all network interfaces under Vista?

Yours Sincerely Stephen Grant brown
