Personal finance software

Anyone found any of the above that works OK under Vista? I'm supposed to be writing a feature on this but two of the four packages I was planning to review - Sage Instant Accounts and my dad's MoneyBox - either won't install at all or play havoc with my PC. Sage gave me two BSODs and one major crash in 15 minutes. MS Money and Tesco Personal Finance are fine, by the way.

of the lastest versions of QuickBooks software will run perfectly in Vista. That is to say:-

Quickbooks Pro 2007,

Quickbooks premiere 2007 in the following versions - Accountant, Contractor, Manufacturing and Wholesale, Nonprofit, Professional Services, Retail.

There are other Quickbooks products that will be OK as well, but I haven't tested them myself.

Thanks, Peter, I'll take a look at that.

have you tried setting up excel with a few formulas. I have all my finances set up this way and ditched sage and moey years ago.

I'm a dead loss at Excel, ss, and anyway it's outside the remit of the feature I'm writing, but thank you for the thought: I know lots of people who do manage their finances that way.

I put the MYOB 16plus trial from the latest PCA DVD onto my vista machine and it seems to run fine.

Update: I got MoneyBox to install by running it as administrator. Phew!
