I just installed GnuCash for the first time yesterday. No prior version install on my Win 10Pro system. I have entered only 10 customers and about 16 transactions, but more often than not, when I open the program, the lock from the previous time I opened is still on and I cannot open it. It usually takes about 5-10 tries of "Open Anyway", open as read only, etc. to get the file to open. I have had the most success trying to open, letting it crash and tell windows about the crash, then deleting the lock file, reopening as read only and then saving as a different file name. Once I do that, and it takes several tries, I can then open the original file as the lock is off it. I have output all transactions to a CSV file and can't see any errors (but as a newbie, I don't really know what I'm looking for!). Any help is appreciated. This is too much work to make it worthwhile!
