Re: Calculated Balance in the Reconcile window is wrong

So I pretty much answered my own question through trial and error. Although I found a Statement Adjustment transaction would throw off the real account balance, it could be fixed by: - Entering a proper Prior Month's statement amount - Allowing MYM to create the Statement Adjustment - Finish reconci...

Calculated Balance in the Reconcile window is wrong

I'm working to reconcile a larger number of accounts that haven't been properly taken care of. I'm able to fix all the transactions in an account to be correct, so the running total balance shows correctly in the account window. However, when I go to reconcile new statements using the Reconcile feat...

Re: installation on XP looks promising

MYM12 should also run without any issues on a Windows 7 32-bit system. When you get to a 64-bit system it becomes tricky and will require something like DOSbox or Virtualbox. Windows XP went end of support four years ago and I wouldn't bother with it, unless it's a machine you won't hook to the inte...

Re: best strategy for running DOS MYM on a Linux machine?

Any of the methods you listed should work fine. I've not personally tried them all myself; however, I've had some experience using DOSBox on my windows machine to run really old DOS (like 3.2) software for an old Rockwell/Collins HF-80 radio system. I would recommend going as "simple" as possible. M...

Re: DOS MYM on Windows 7 32-bit

DosBox is kind of like it's own little VM yes. I'm not certain about printing though; I've not played with enough to know. You can read up on it here: http://www.dosbox.com/ Though I don't see much on printing. Staying with something you know is probably a lot better. I imagine your wish to upgrade ...

Re: DOS MYM on Windows 7 32-bit

As I recall, XP still allowed older DOS programs to run full screen, however, Win7 does not. So it's more a limitation of the OS (inside the VM) that you are running. For all my older DOS programs I've turned to Dosbox. I create a unique DosBox config for each application, so there is only one appli...

Re: DOS MYM on Windows 7 32-bit

Steve, There IS a way in DOSbox to set the speed parameter permanently. I can't recall exactly how to do it but it IS documented in the DOSbox files somewhere. From what I can quickly find, there is a dos.cfg file. A section in that called cpu and settings in that section that help control speed. Yo...

Re: Printing to a network printer in XP

Hmmm. I'm not home at the moment so I try to test this myself. Maybe tomorrow. However, I'm wondering if it's a limitation of Windows 7? I'm guessing your trying this on a Windows 7 computer. Another thought, you may be using the incorrect printer name. If you are using "HP Officejet 7200 series" th...

I haven't tried this myself and didn't post the original message, but I do think the spaces -are- important. Give that a try.

Re: 64 bit Windows 7 and MYM

The issue is it doesn't run on Windows 7 unless you use XP mode or rig up a DOS environment ala virtual machine. Yes, I've used FreeDOS in a Linux environment and MYM 12 ran beautifully. I've not tried it on Windows 7 yet, though I now have a Win 7 64-bit machine so it's time to try. FreeDOS should ...
