Please be aware that 2.3.7 is an unstable version.  Within the next few months (I hope), 2.3.X will become stable and supported version 2.4.0.  Until then, tests are being run and bugs are being fixed so your data might be lost or corrupted.

You might do better with gnucash 2.2.9 which stores data in an XML file until 2.4.0 is released.

If you do want to use 2.3.X (you should at least wait for 2.3.8 which should be available in a few days), I can provide some instructions.
