Well, I ran into trouble fairly quickly. I entered some recurring expenses and they just don't show up on the calendar. I would also like to see my current balance, not my total net worth including all the payments I've scheduled ahead...that's just scary. ;o)

Re #6 Keith

You might try Adminsoft Accounts Free which is a small download and has a very easy user interface as an alternative to today's GOTD.

For something more sophisticated: Although technical support has been discontinued, Microsoft Office Accounting 2009 US or GB versions, plus SP1 and SP2 for MOA (ENU for US, ENG for GB) are available to download free from Microsoft. The file name is MOA2009USExp.exe (USA) or MOA2009GBExp.exe (UK) and the service packs are KB959057 and KB971975

@9 Renee: ERROR CODE

Although I have Windows Vista Home Premium, try double clicking or right click the small date icon in the task bar near the clock to open the program instead of using the desktop shortcut. You are trying to open an additional session of OrgFinances while there is already an instance of it currently running in your background.

Looks good. Now installed. BUT, as No. 13, How can one get the programme to use GBP or Euros rather than US Dollars? Anyone help? Thanks

#9, I had same, but on Vista it does this if you have 2 copies running at once. I closed the extra copy, and it ran fine. It does seem more like an organiser than an accounting software though, and as such 49.95 seems very steep.

I am not a lawyer, but I usually check for "registered or not" by looking at the "About" screen in the Help Menu. Failing that, it might be in the splash screen. And sometimes I just go to "Register the software" whereever it is, stopping partway through, in case it says "Hey, I'm good, you're already registered!" which happens a lot.

My goal is to track every penny, entering as I go from a PDA or cell. I've tried to do this with Quicken a few times over the years, and that's fallen flat because the wife and I had a joint account.

Now that I've weaned her into a separate account, I'm going to try again.

Does OrgFinances support categorizing the accounts, and support importing transaction data from text files? I need to try and answer questions like "Are we spending too much on groceries? Are we spending enough on car maintenance?" And at tax time, I want to print out lists of tax payments, medical expenses, etc.

I'm prepared to lay out the money to buy Quicken again, but what I hate about using a vendor like them is that they decide from time to time to change things, like a few years ago altering all the file formats.

Thanks to any one that replies.

Well, despite its current low GAOTD users rating, today's giveaway is pretty good for what it does but it's definitely not worth its price, especially when compared to this amazing FREE APP (yeah dudes, you heard me right: FREE...LOL!!) I stumbled upon a few weeks ago:

http://www.nolapro.com/

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Finances-Business/NolaPro.shtml

As you can see, this awesome web-based ERP tool includes AP, AR, Payroll, Order Tracking, Inventory Control, POS, B2B and even an Ecom Shopping Cart, as well as tons of plug-ins and add-ons aimed at performing a small business internal audit.

From order management to inventory and point of sale, this program goes far beyond mere accounting.

The last version has improved BANK RECONCILIATION'S HANDLING of CREDIT CARD PAYMENT applied to multiple invoices.

And it can even be customized upon request to fit your company's niche or any business requirement.

How cool is that??


Really a dream program for small businesses accountants and enterprise consultants!!!

Amazing for being a FREE AUDITING TOOL, isn't it??

Enjoy!!

MS Money Sunset Edition is FREE from the Microsoft website. It is really easy to use and proven. However, the online downloading feature has been disabled. BUT there is a free work-around that automates OFX transactions using Python and a script. See: http://microsoftmoneyoffline.wordpress.com/

Looks good but it is imperative to be able to import bank statements. I would love to use it and would even consider upgrading to the network version for my business, but will have to delete without the import feature.

As an accounting program it appears very simple. It looks more like a calendar program with a few accounting features added.

Using standard windows add/remove does not work as previously stated . For some reason it leaves remnants in the registry , one assuming they think your going to reinstall it . Also noteworthy is when its installed and not running it seems to phone home a lot . If your going to uninstall this use a good uninstaller that thoroughly cleans this from your computer . On the whole im in agreement with others that i would not want to entrust financial info with these people and that's aside from the WOT warning .

Nice enough for free but lacks import from bank account. Not worth much without that. I downloaded it but will delete it for that reason. Not worth $49 for sure.

This software makes a good and professional first impression.

The interface is beautiful, responsive and well thought out.

It has nice little touches like showing the date unobtrusively in the tray icon.

What I do not appreciate that I do not know the whereabouts of this company. Nowhere in the software nor on the web site can I find out who is "Binary House Software" and where they are located.

Therefore I am uncertain, if I want to entrust my personal financial information to a company that I know nothing about.

Installs and runs OK, looks nice and seems to have more options than just finance organiser. I need one of these and now I need to learn how to use one properly.

Real life Educational Tool!

I find it to be a Perfect tool that would discipline the kids (actually 16-22 of age) on how to be truly ready for real life!

Irrespective to anything else, it is important that today's kids who would be tomorrow's men and women to be able to keep track of their finances.

With all those tiny shortcomings, Honestly, couldn't find easier to use tool for them to use! It does cover a vast area of what they would need.

Thanks.

Hi all

Can anyone tell me how in the program I check that it is actually activated or registered properly?

I've had problems before with GOTD programs that appear as if the activate.exe has done its job properly but 15, 30 or 40 days later up pops a message like "Your trial is now over please purchase full version"

I wouldn't want it to happen with this because it is definitely something I can use!

Having used Quicken for 15 years, and more recently Microsoft Money, now retired I thought something simple and basic would be better, and this sounded ideal.

Installed on Windows 7 (64 bit) no problem, but very disappointed with the way the program works. Despite being called OrgFinances it seem to be more of a PIM than a bank account record that I thought it was going to be.

With such a long-winded way of entering data, (in comparison to the other programs I have used), making sure that each transaction was finance related rather than an appointment, was an effort.

Despite selecting the current month, and entering an opening balance twice, no records were shown. I then found that the entries that I had made were for October rather than November, and only by selecting the whole year was I able to see what had been entered.

As my first two entries of an opening balance duplicated, and in the wrong month, then could not be found, I’m afraid there is no way I would never be able to rely on this program for financial records. Now uninstalled.

Not very user friendly. Over complicated for the home user, yet no where near good enough for business use. There is far better free available for whatever the user requires than this. The up side is that by having it free you can try it and save yourself $49.95.
It takes some uninstalling so make sure you have a good uninstaller.

Downloaded, installed and activated problem free on Windows Vista Home Premium. Very user friendly interface with impressive personalization options. Quick Start Guide in Help file aided with smooth setup and personalization of software, i.e. categories, colors, icons, names, descriptions, etc.. I am neither a novice nor expert with computers and software, but I already completed the set up of my own budget; including resources of income, expenses and appointments with ease. Adding to, editing or deleting any of the personalized data can be done with a few clicks of the mouse. Top notch software. Thanks Giveaway of the Day!

Pros:
- Lots of options
- Clear overview of finances
- Password protected

Cons:
- Takes up lots of resources (130mb for running in background)
- Hard to understand what to do at first glance
- Can't read white text on green background (with positive finances)

General view: Definitely a keeper for people like me with lots of different incomes. Not a bad program, works like a charm.

Works ok on XL. Quite nice looking but only limited use without the facility to import data e.g. bank statements.

Works OK on Windows Vista Ultimate, but not sure Id use this softwatre much. As my wifes an accountant, Im going to leave it on for her to play with though 8)
Looks like l;oads of options, but there are free alternatives available as well which do a similar job ie Ledger, from http://www.responsive.co.nz/ and they arent loaded with upgrade bugs etc.
