I'm finding myself going down a similar rabbit hole. After editing my funds
(38 in all) to reflect yahoo_json as had been suggested elsewhere, I still
couldn't get any quotes. I removed Strawberry Perl using both Windows
Control Panel and File Explorer and then, for good measure, did a Registry
scrub using a utility I've used successfully for years. I then reinstalled
Strawberry Perl via the "Install Online Price Retrieval" utility which in
turn installed F::Q 1.47 and tried once more to get quotes. Again, no
success. This morning, I updated all items manually.
Since I've read that GNC 3.2 has the ability to import quotes from a CSV
file, I guess I'll try that now. I've been reluctant to install any 3.x
version because of the bugs that a new major version of any program exhibits
even though I know that the Gnucash developers do a good job of sorting out
such things. At worst, I can always go back to the 2.6.16 version for which
everything I use (except F::Q) works fine.
