MyExpenseTracker Installer

Finally, I've compiled the setup file for MyExpenseTracker application. There are currently still a lot of issues that I'll need to fix later, or some features are not in yet. There are many things to learn for deployment phase too. I need to consider how to update the database for future version. :p

Feedback and suggestions are welcomed! ^_^

setup file: MyExpenseTracker BETA (826.4KB)
source code (C#): MyExpenseTracker source (1.4MB)

After installation, you'll see this icon in your desktop.


Problems might be faced during installation:

1. If the program has been installed before, you'll get this error when you run the installation:

You have to go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs to remove the program before you can install the new version.

 2. You may get the following error during the remove program process, perhaps the database log file is in use.

Right click on your taskbar --> select "Task Manager" --> click on "Processes" tab --> look for "sqlservr.exe" and click on "End Process". Then you can continue to remove the program before installing the new version.


3. You may encounter this error when you start the program.

You need to go to your "C:\Program Files\MyExpenseTracker\Data" folder and delete the "MyExpenseTracker_log.LDF" file. Then you can run the program again.
