Greetings! Welcome to the GnuCash User list!
I can't answer your question, but I wanted to point out a couple of things
1) You can (and probably should) download the latest version of GnuCash by
following the links at http://gnucash.org -- I haven't tried to find that
snipca.com link, but whatever it is, following a link from anywhere else
might lead you astray. In fact, you might check to be sure the GnuCash you
installed shows the latest version number, and if not, download a fresh
copy directly from the official links (and check your computer for malware,
just in case).
2) You can use the basic GnuCash documentation for free from
http://gnucash.org (click on documentation and then Tutorial and Concepts
Guide). If you ask a question referring to that, anyone on this list is
more likely to be able to follow along with your questions. Although I am
sure the book is very good, many folks on this list may not own it, so it's
hard to know where your difficulty understanding it may lie.
