Cashac has been upgraded to "Cashac2". This is in order to replace its database software with "Firebird" (see www.firebirdsql.org). Formerly the  database software was "Paradox", for which the  'Borland Database Engine' needed to be installed; this required a separate installation procedure to that for Cashac itself, and also required some tricky hacks for versions of Windows since XP. Now, Firebird is installed at the same time as Cashac2 (it's simply a set of DLLs that reside in the same folder as Cashac2.exe), and works fine under Windows Vista and Windows 7 as well as XP. Much better, and about time. 

 

Version 2.19.03 includes enhancement for compliancy with HMRC "Making Tax Digital" (MTD) for VAT Returns (required from April 2019).

[ This is not as complicated as it sounds, comprising just a CSV export facility to transfer account balances via a 'digital link' into a spreadsheet, from where they can be submitted to HMRC via an MTD Bridge. HMRC explicitly allow CSV as a form of 'digital link', whereas copying via cut-and-paste is explicitly disallowed for this. ]

 

The installation steps are as follows (logon to Windows as an Administrator first) :

 

1. New users 

2. Existing users of old Cashac (Paradox version) 

3. Existing users of a previous version of Cashac2 (but already upgraded from Cashac)

 

Other programs which I have written can be found here. All my software is written primarily for my own use, so you may find it does not match the breadth of functionality expected in commercial software. Please do email me for help or suggestions or any other feedback include the application name "CASHAC2" in the subject line so that you stand a chance of being noticed in the blizzard of spam. If you do not get a prompt reply you will probably have been blocked by Google's draconian spam filters, please persevere.
