1. Install ActiveState Perl 5.8 from
2. Run the "Install Online Price Retrieval" on
 start -> programs -> GnuCash
That's it.

Thanks, but it didn't work.  I dowloaded and installed ActivePerl-  When I ran the Install Online Price Retrieval, I got an error message in the command box that said:
* Check Perl

* Install DateManip

Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...not modified ppm install failed:  Can't find any package that provides DateManip

An error occured, see above.

Press any key to continue . . .
