Unfortunately, Money Manager frequently crashes on my Windows 7 system. I uninstalled it before even able to create any accounts.

That is unfortunate, I have used MMEX starting with XP through Windows 7 and now Windows 10. If you are interested in pursuing, there were some users that had problems in the past and the solution was to update "Windows Universal C Runtime."

The forum thread discussing this issue is:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2999226/update-for-universal-c-runtime-in-windows

scroll toward the bottom of the page and poster RLWA32 provided this specific info, which provides the following link to the Microsoft update site.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2999226/update-for-universal-c-runtime-in-windows

Edit
the mmex forum discussion of this issue is: https://forum.moneymanagerex.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=7006

skip to post #9 for Nikolay, who is the original developer of MMEX.

It is not difficult, if you wish to try the update.

I don't know what you were looking at or where, but a KMyMoney .exe installer file is listed right here:
https://download.kde.org/stable/kmymoney/4.8.2/win64/

And I';m not sure what you were talking about, but I'm guessing you wrote ".xz" when you meant ".7z", which if you bother to check, is a common archive format - 7zip. To make things simple, just download the .exe file if you want to try KMyMoney.

The KMyMoney site doesn't have the best screenshots, but your best bet for that is to go to Google.com (or whatever country you're in) and select "images" and type "Kmymoney + screenshots". You'll see tons of screenshots if you do that.

I checked out https://kmymoney.org/ and I must say I don't think their website is intuitive and I don't see any examples of the software. I don't even know how to open the application which is in .xz format.

i just came back here to see if there was any interesting updates or news.

I had GnuCash installed and it seemed to function somewhat in allowing me to important accounts that I did back in July.

Now, when I went to import the Quicken file, I just get a blank screen...even if I choose to download a .CSV file. This is my third kick at the can with this software. It's definitely not "plug and play" and unlike most of you, I don't have the time or patience in my life to tinker or add manually their financial transactions just to save when to me, time is money. And there's no price that can be put on being anxiety or frustration free.
