Ok, Stephane, we now have a bit more of the picture.

So, you opened an existing file, created on Ubuntu.

Now, have you used the Euro previously with this file?
Was this the first time you used it on Windows?
Had you copied the resource file from your Ubuntu system to the Windows 
If not, the the Windows .kmy file will not be aware of any settings 
previously used.
So, you should now copy the resource file from Ubuntu to Windows. On 
Ubuntu, it will probably be ~/.kde/share/config/kmymoneyrc and on 
Windows.  $KDEHOME/share/config/kmymoneyrc.

I suspect that you getting the message to input your currency was the 
new Windows file starting to be created, but I could be wrong.

Anyway, try what I've suggested, and see if that helps.
