Trouble downloading v1.3.5

Post by RWCurry »

I run v1.3.4 of MMEX. Every time I launch the app, I get a message telling me v1.3.5 is available. I download this and launch it. The next time I open MMEX, Help>About tells me I am running 1.3.5 and the Home Page looks a bit different to 1.3.4. However, when I shutdown and later launch the app again, V1.3.5 seems to have disappeared. I just get v1.3.4, with the message telling me v1.3.5 is available. Can you explain why this is and how I overcome the problem?

Check whether your download is the portable version instead of the installable version.

If you are used to opening Money Manager Ex from the start menu on Windows then you want the installable version. Go to https://www.moneymanagerex.org/download and choose "Windows - 64BIT" (assuming your computer is 64 bit).

Thank you. The link you provided took me to a different site compared to the one the link in the message took me to. That only gave me access to the portable version. My problem is now solved.

I am now having the same problem installing 1.5. I have downloaded the file mmex-1.5.0-win64.exe. When I run it, I receive an error messages. I have attached screenshot. My version continues as 1.3.6. All unchanged apart from the fact that my attempt to upload seems to have removed the home page. I get a message saying the path to this cannot be found. Can you help? Many thanks. Richard curry

I would suggest closing the open MMEX before an installation so that the new version can be installed.
regards Renato use MMEX since 2009, now with Windows 11

That seems to have resolved the problem. It is a bit misleading when the scree telling you about a new version comes up when you are trying to launch MoneyManager, but nothing tells you to shut it down again to download and install the new version. Anyway, thank you for your help - much appreciated. Richard Curry

Thank you very much for the feedback.
by the way: this was not a problem from downloading, but from installation.
