I cant seem to change the quantity shiped so with that in mind the invoiceing if not working so I cant do invoiceing so I cant use the program ..I have contacted the support but nothing back yet its only been a week so unless i get somethng back i will not buy the product that I can not use
Asolutely NOTHING since it never loaded.
The software wouldn't load after install. I get an out of member error on a system with a 1Gb of free member. Also it will not uninstall. Tells me it can not open the install.log file. 30 seconds after install.
Don't corrupt you system with this software. It's not worth the free download. Now I am off to repair my OS.
Its a little outdated, but you get what you pay for. The registration code is in the description.
This software is so easy to use. I am able to keep track of multiple bank accounts and reconcile them each month with ease.
I used this software for several months and then added the check printing feature for $49.95. It is worth it. It allows me to print the checks instead of manually entering them. I would recommend this software to anyone.
I like everything about the software, however downloading from C-Net is an older version. I would recommend you go direct to their website which is freeaccounting.net. That way you are sure to have a newer version.
Worked for about 5 months. Corrupted my MSOffice runtime .mdb. Corruption may be due to 5 sleeper trojans detected in the .pdf exe help folder. Cannot explain. I'm disappointed.
Splash screens are annoying.
I have used this program for a few years with my small business. It is easy to set up, easy to use, and provides everything you need to know about your small business at a glance; from your assets and sales revenue to your expenses and liabilities and everything in between. I liked it so much I recently downloaded it again on my personal laptop to use to track our household expenses as an alternative to certain big named financial planning software because they were too difficult to learn to use. The HELP section is easy to read and navigate too. Highly recommend this program.
It's free, and works in its limited way.
To install, I took the advice of another reviewer and put in the code manually in lowercase without cut and paste, and it worked fine.
It then installed, but when I opened it up, I deleted the sample company without thinking because I wanted to start a new, clean database...and it seems this is DEMO software and it won't let you make a new company.
So I had to uninstall it, and like someone else said the uninstall doesn't work...I had to manually tell it where to find the install log (called cainstall.log instead of install.log, and was in the C:\Program Files\Choice Accounting folder), which isn't something a non-techie could do. (I work as tech support for a software company, so it wasn't too hard for me). It then uninstalled it using the icon for uninstalling in the C:\Program Files\Choice
I reinstalled it, and when I opened it up I made sure to keep the demo company, and I opened that, but still no way to make a new company or account.
So I tried to delete the demo data, and it was a hassle and I didn't fight it to figure it out, not after the above.
So, just so everyone knows, this is a demo program. It's a bit buggy, and a bit crippled. If you have the patience to get it going it might be worth something, but I think personally I'll just go buy something else.

On the Main Menu on the left there is a "Setup" option, when you click on that you'll find a "Create New Company "option on the left of that menu screen.

This is NOT a demo program. The demo/sample company is for you to go into to see how the program looks and works you also need this in order to add a new company. Once you're in a company, click on Setup then Create New Company. You can add as many companies as you'd like to.
For Documentation on the program click on: Start/Programs/Choice Accounting/Documentation.
You can also click on Help within the program.
We will be coming out with a new updated version by May 1st.
Could not eval product. Failed to run. Missing files.
Installed ok but after startup (yes, I rebooted)program indicated missing PCac.ini file and then indicated it needed to create the PCAcCmp97.mdb. Clicing yes to allow creation only resulted in beep, beep...had to say NO... Bah Humbug..
I noticed that "skipping file" was displayed from time to time during install.
I was logged in as Administrator on Win XP/SP2... a system that runs 24/7 with no problems. so..blah...

I noticed the missing files were actually there. the .ini and the mdb files were there in the installed program folder. So what now ?... I tried teh uninstall to get rid of the program and viola..It Failed.. no uninstall log ??...so BLAH again...
I tried it once and it worked fine. Really good starter program and gives you different GL accounts for different types of businesses.
Download is now corrupted. It doesn't work anymore. When I switched computers and needed a new download I went back and downloaded (I should have saved the first one). It downloaded OK and took the key code. But then would not run. Tried it a few times and gave up. This download no longer works. its useless.

I must revise my complaint 180 degrees. If you have over 1 gig of RAM on your PC it will not work unless you upgrade your Microsoft Jet Database Engine at the Microsoft support site and run the download.
After doing that I am back in business and the tech people at People's Choice were Prompt and fantastic. This is a truly great application becasue its about the only one that gives you a choice of GL accounts based upon what kind of business you are. For example, if you are a consultant, and don;t manufacture a product, you do not need Cost of Goods Sold. The application is easy to use. I highly recommend it for any small (or larger) business. The free version is great as a stand alone for very small businesses. I highly recommend. (Give this 5 stars)
I downloaded Choice Accounting and found it to be very user friendly and easy to use. I was able to get the Install keys to work by manually typing them in lower case, not copy/paste. I enjoyed that I was able to download and start using the program the same day without reading a manual or having confusions about where to start. I have also been in contact with the Sales Team at Choice Technologies to let them know my thoughts on the program and they were very helpful and gave me wonderful suggestions on how this program will benefit me and my business.
I also found out that since I really like the software I can advertise my business in the "Other Services" button on the Main Menu and give it to Clients/Prospects.
This will leave my clients with all the information about my company and the products and services I offer by just clicking on that button. I have never found a promotional product that I can give to a client that has as much value as this, with little investment from me.
I also found out there are other products that I can purchase in the future as my company grows.
I Highly Recommend this product!
