Thank you for tring the Ace Personal Finance Assistant Suite! This is a cross platform money manager program and my first
large scale program. Currently still under development, it will be written completely in C++ and use wxWidgets
for the GUI. There will be many features including:
Track multiple accounts such as checking, savings, 401k, ect.
Run spending reports
Attach images to transactions
I hope that this will be a very powerful yet easy to use software package, and one that everyone will want to use.
If you have any questions or comments please contact me at the project page on Sorceforge at
***** How To Install AcePFA *****
This is a pretty easy process. There are only three steps involved. Note that all files found here are zipped using 7-Zip.
If you need it you can download [url=http://www.7-zip.org] 7-Zip [/url] here for free.
Download the files to your computer.
You can save them anywhere you want to... just remember where they are at.
You will need to download two files, both of these can be found in the download section.
- The current release.
Filename is "AcePFA_rev####.tar.7z" Where #### is the revision number.
These are the system and data files.
Make sure you get the current release for all the latest features and bug fixes.
- The wxWidgets DLL's.
Filename is AcePFA_wxDLL.tar.7z"
These are the DLL's that are required for AcePFA to operate.
These files will rarely change, so you only need to download and install them once.
Unzip the files.
The installers use 7-Zip to extract the archives so you will need to download and install 7-Zip. Don't worry, it's free and
easay to use. Just open "My Computer" and navigate to the directory that you saved the files to. Then right click on the file
and select "Extract here". Do this for both the release file and the wxWidgets DLL file.
Run the "Install.bat" (from the release archive) and, if needed, "Install_wxDLL" (from the wxWidgets archive). These two files
will copy all the files needed to "c:\Program Files\AcePFA". The installer will also ask you if you want to create a
shortcut on your desktop if there is not already one there. Answer yes here.
And that's it! Go to your desktop and click the shortcut to launch AcePFA and begin managing your accounts!
