Download, Installation Instructions, Release Notes

So, in order to use the application Money on Thread version 1.6.5 built on 2015-12-05, you have to do the following actions.

- For the archive versions w/o JRE:
  • Download "Money on Thread" version that you want (either the one for everyone, or for the IT experts), by clicking on one of the available links in the "Download" section, and then "Save As" to your computer.
  • Unzip the archive file, which you just downloaded on the previous step, somewhere on your computer, by right-click on it and choose one of the available options: "Unzip here" or "Extract here".
  • Start it with the command "StartThreadMoney.cmd" by double-click on it, or from the command line.
  • If you are updating an older version, just unzip the application over the older folder.

- For the installer:
  • Download the setup file MoneyOnThread-n.n.n-setup.exe and start it.
  • The new installer is a classic wizard installer, basically it's just "next-next-next" button :-)
  • This application requires the Java Runtime Env. (JRE >= 1.7.0_40) - and if you don't have it - don't worry, the installer will propose to download it, directly from the Oracle website
  • Start the application from "Start > All Programs > Sorinel Cristescu (SCC) > Money on Thread n.n.n > MoneyOnThread

        1. i GET io ERROR when trying to save an account im using VISTA

        2. Which version did you use (1.3.2 setup installer, or ZIP archive) ?

        3. are you sure you have right to write on disk on the location where application is installed? -- can you install it on desktop and try it again, please!

        4. cant save windows7

        5. windows 7 wont save says 99% 256mb used and in the corner it will say failed 2 open. but is open

        6. I think you use the "executable" version, which I built with Excelsior JET ... maybe they have problems ... can you try the zip archive package, please?

          If, it's working then I'll get rid of that setup.exe crap, which looks good, but works bad on some systems (Vista or 7) ...

          Thank you for your replies!


        7. all is good it was a brand new laptop downloaded some updates for 7 and java works fine now great program love it

        8. If you have IOException error on Vista or Windows 7, it's because the Money On Thread is trying to save your transactions into a file, which isn't allowed on some computers.

          So, the workaround is to execute the MoneyOnThread "as administrator", or better to update the properties of the desktop link to always run "as administrator".

          I'll investigate in the next version to see how this little problem would be corrected.


        9. Hi, Just installed 1.4.1 and it seems to be running fine on an XP system. However, the date for the transactions is in a different language than english. Any comments?

        10. Yes, on XP it's working fine ! Only for Vista and Win7 there are explained issues. The dates are displayed in the language associated with the account currency (by default it's the OS setting -- btw what's your locale?). You go to account menu and select the currency ('USD' for example) that you want for the account.

          I hope it helped.


        11. Some countries (i.e. Canada, Switzerland, Spain etc) have many official languages, and Money on Thread isn't taking care of this correctly ... It's a bug, which I've fixed it already, and it will be present in next build 1.4.2. I'll do the build tomorrow ... ciao, and thanks for pointing this out.


        12. Cannot import QIF OFX CSV files. The import module runs but nothing is imported. I am using Win 7.

        13. The CSV import works fine only with the exported files by Money on Thread. So, if you try your bank generated file then it's normal not to work, because they are using different format inside.

          So, can you drop me an email at with the errors, your testing file .OFX and .QFX and eventually some screenshots, please?

          I know might be sensible info in the files, but maybe you can scramble it (i.e. put 1111111 instead of account number, XXXXX for addresses and names etc), because they are text files (you can edit them with notepad).

          Thank you!

        14. Cannot save calendar without the pictures even when I have the changes in the configuration.

        15. You cannot save the calendar because the save button is disabled, or do you have an IO-Exception (perhaps you have Windows7 or Vista)?

          Anyways, I'm working to change the location of the files where I store this information, to be in the user's space, not in the Program Files ('cause this is more special now in Win7).

          Very soon version 1.4.3 will solve this problem.

          Workaround: you can install 'Money on Thread' to another folder, ignoring the default one (i.e. C:/Users//MoneyOnthread) and you'll be OK with the version 1.4.2.


        16. I tried saving the folder somewhere else but still cannot save the calendar settings. Is there anything I can edit in the file to make it work?

        17. Yup -- you're right -- there is a bug for that flag. You can add into the the line to disable the pictures:

          to make it work (obviously to display the images you put value: yes).

          The issue will be solved by next version 1.4.3.

          Thank you for you feedback!
