Hi Allan, Thomas and Jack

Thanks for your input.  I'd already been to those links; the http://kmymoney2.sourceforge.net/windows-install.html gives the kdewin-installer-gui-latest.exe where I 
installed the "KDE environment".  I won't persevere with this anymore as completely by chance I found a commercial piece of software which seems to do the job.  Once again 
thanks for your input.
