Re: KMyMoney 5.x for Windows

With the help of Thomas I've narrowed my issue down to the Windows PC upon which KMyMoney is installed. Installation on another Windows PC showed the application was working fine. While troubleshooting the PC having issues running KMyMoney I've re-installed the application, manually cleared entries from the registry and deleted files from the hard drive. I've been successful at resolving a couple of issues however Price Update remains a problem. I will post a solution here if I find one.

Re: KMyMoney 5.x for Windows

Yesterday I’ve installed the “kmymoney-5.0-76-windows-msvc2017_64-cl.exe” file on Windows 10 and basically it’s working fine for me.

Now I tried to save the data into a MySQL database which is already set up and accessible from the MySQL Workbench with the same user.

File > Save As >
In the window “Save storage as… KMyMoney” I choose the option “SQL” for the “Storage type to use for your data

After also filling in the following window and clicking OK I’m getting the following message:

Cannot save to current database: opening database in function bool_cded MyMoneyStorageSqlPrivate::createDatabase(const class QUrl&) c:\craft\downloads\git\extragear\kmymoney\kmymoney\plugins\sql\mymoneystoragesql_p.h:2024

The directory c:\craft\... doesn’t exist on my computer.

Is that a bug or am I doing something wrong?

This directory (and the file mymoneystoragesql_p.h) is the where the source code was stored during the production of the install package. It is therefore not expected to be found on your computer. It is a hint to the developers where the error was detected.

Please try the following: create a completely empty database using an external tool e.g. MySQL Workbench and give it a name of your choice. Then try to run the save as procedure again and provide the exact same name as database name and setup the rights to access this database from the user running KMyMoney.

So far all I can say is that it tried to create a database because it could not open the one provided in the dialog (for whatever reason).

Hi again. It's been a while. I tried the nightly version from CI but it only provides 64bit install and I have unfortunately a 32bit install. I know it is better to change my pc, but is-there a 32bit installer? And when will we have a official release for Windows? I keep having the major bug of Qif import that oftenly fails (detail https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=349938), that is fixed in 5.x. Thanks.

I guess that will happen as soon as someone steps up and says "Hey, I am the maintainer for the KMyMoney Windows builds and make sure that the official versions are made available for this operating system."

Thank you for the answer. For that purpose, I asked you before, on 2018-05-01, what would be the good profile for such a job, and I had that answer:

What would be the requirement for someone to start helping in this matter? And how much time do we need to invest for someone who knows how to compile, Jenkins, Linux and a bit of Windows? Did KMyMoney changed so much that the previous packaging needs reworking for 5.x? Thanks.


Hi,
no help is needed right now. We have working KMyMoney 5 on MS Windows (and soon on MacOS as well). We need some time to do finishing work and find out how to distribute it. Please stay tuned.

  • Basic understanding of the cmake build tools
  • Can setup local build environment using MSVC and/or
  • Can setup local build environment using MinGW
  • Can setup a local Craft based build chain for the above
  • Provides MS-Windows installers for project based on released tarballs
  • Supports developers with execution of MS-Windows specific tests
  • Supports team of developers maintaining MS-Windows builds for project on KDE CI
optional
  • Maintains MS-Windows builds for project on KDE CI in team with developers
  • Can fix software in windows specific areas in team with developers
  • Basic knowledge of C++/Qt/KDE development environment
