Not so easy to get for Mac

Mac users get to build their own. My Mac never seems to want to do this and I have no idea where to get the dependancies.

Simple, easy to use and a clean interface. I had it figured out in in a minute, maybe a whole 2 minutes. If you just want to balance your bank account I don't see how you could do better.

I think it sounds great. But when I tried to download it to my Mac, it wouldn't let me. The Xcode that it said I had to have before I could get the Brewinstall said my computer had to be High Sierra at least 10.13.3 and mine is 10.13.6. Has anyone had that problem? I'm not real tech savvy, so maybe I'm missing something. Help!!!

Hi jeppsons8
If you have trouble installing Homebrew, you could install Wine (https://www.winehq.org/ ) and use it to run the Windows binary instead. Worked for me on a 10.11.6.
A good introduction to Wine is this one: https://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/

The commands I had to run in the Terminal Application:
installing
$ wine HomeBank-5.2.4-setup.exe
using
$wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/HomeBank/HomeBank.exe

Cheers, Stef

Jeppsons8, a few years back, I installed Mike Kronenberg's Wine:

https://winebottler.kronenberg.org

I am running version 2.0 -- which apparently was pulled, for some reason -- but version 1.8.6 is good enough.

Simply download Wine 1.8.6, install it, then download HomeBank, and double-click the Installer. You might have to select Wine the first time and answer the "Use This Program for All .exe Files?" question.

If you get any questions about running X11, dismiss/close the window and try Control-clicking the HomeBank.exe file, select Open With, and point it to Wine.

Oh, and even better, no need for MacPorts with this one.

Good luck!

File navigation is ... difficult in this one (HomeBank). You might want to create an alias to the Windows Documents folder on your Mac's desktop, and just save everything there.
