I made the jump from Jumsoft's Money app to GnuCash a while back. It appealed to all my OCD tendencies. I don't know how to use Perl, or stuff of the sort, but with detailed instructions I manage to get things done... when I can find them.
I set up Finance::Quote to pull quotes after I set up GnuCash. I even managed to get it to pull quotes for Korean funds. And every thing had been working well, until tonight. I only get back a pop-up that states "There was an unknown error while retrieving the price quotes." That's where I need help. What can I do?
I dug around and found that it seems that it has something to do with Yahoo Finance ending it's API support. I also learned that Finance::Quote can pull data from many sources, so I don't really understand why one missing API would break it. I also saw that someone out there is trying to use AEX to pull the quotes instead for GnuCash specifically. I found Finance::Quote on cpan (I also first heard of cpan), but I don't understand what I'm looking at. But that's all beside the point. I don't know how to fix this.
Any help would be appreciated. I'm on Windows 10, GnuCash version 2.6.17, and have Strawberry Perl 18.104.22.168-32bit installed.
edit Thanks everyone who responded. It seems to be working more or less. The currency and Korean funds still haven't updated, but you've shown this horse to water. I'll do my best to drink it now.
