I have to ask though, even though Microsoft may have discontinued support for it's Money software, that doesn't mean the software will suddenly cease to work. If it still works, why not use it?
As, MS stopped to deliver and support Money applications, under Windows, and co. Is there any financial, banking alternatives, available.
I think it should be able to handle multiple bank accounts, but also stock options and familly or small business budget. It should be also able to download or at least be able to accept standard files downloaded from on line banking accounts. Like were able to do the Money applications.
Quicken was an alternative, but is also discontinued.
I was using Money 2004,and as I change my PC, I end up with Windows 7 Pro. Was anable to re-install Money 2004.... only 2005 could be installed under Win7... and not buyable nor anymore supported...
In Money's forum, it is mentioned that Quicken will also be withdrawn and not anymore supported...
As have to start from scrath, and I need a financial Pgm, at least for 5 to 10 years, I am ready to go to something new, for free or $... trhat cover my need....
Noted at Microsoft it reads:
Update (6/17/10): Microsoft has released 'Sunset' versions of Money Plus Deluxe and Money Plus Home & Business that do not require online activation. This version will allow you to keep your Money files and transactional history (on current and future machines) but will not allow access to online services or premium services. Full details and links to the Download Center can be found here.
I tried it, but was unable to open my last Money 2004 file... It seems to work only in USA....
I am currenly in Europ, and I am looking for an alternative which is able to handle Mpl accounts, stock shares, but that accept file at bank exchange files with QIF format... and not direct on line banks connections... All these needs are available from Money Sunset, but do not work here in Europ.
Tks for your help/advise,
I read your posts again and didn't see that Europe was an issue till now.
REMEMBER THAT EVEN AN EUROPE MS MONEY SUNSET VERSION WILL NOT UPDATE FROM THE WEB for stock prices and more. All that is noted at the MS web page.
However it doesn't mean it's game over. You should ask Microsoft Europe for their Sunset version.
