Money Plus Deluxe RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer had a virus and I had to wipe it clean. Installing Money Plus Deluxe software back on computer does not accept the product key. My question is because online services are no longer available for this product, will the Money Plus still work with out the product key after 60 days?  If not how can I over ride it to use?

  • its recommended if you are using Money Plus Deluxe Sunset (designed to replace Essentials, Deluxe and Premium) and no activation requirement


    Recommendations on Usage:
      • Download and save a copy of the Money Plus Sunset version. To do this, go to http://download.microsoft.com
         and search for “Money Plus Sunset” and then Save the download to a location on your system.
      • Install Money Plus Sunset from that saved copy. Note, that you should remove/uninstall older versions of Money first.
      • Start Money Plus Sunset and individually open any/all of your important Money data files.
      • If any of these files have a Windows Live ID associated to them, remove the Live ID by going to File – Password Manager. Assign a standard Money password if desired.
      • Contact your financial institution(s) to cancel any service for Microsoft Money (for which they may have charged you a fee). This could include statement download and/or online bill payment.
      • Look at your list of scheduled online bill payments (especially any Automatic Payments – Apay) to see about canceling them in Money before installing the Money Plus Sunset versions (and/or contact your bill payment provider/financial institution to cancel those bills and re-establish them under their direct online bill payment service).
      • Since online updates within Money Plus Sunset are not available, you can:
      • Update transactions in each of your accounts manually
      • If your financial institution provides OFX or QIF downloads, you can download those statements into Money.
      • To update investment quote manually, go to the Portfolio Manager and Update Prices – Update Prices Manually.
      • For Bill Payment, see if your financial institution provides a Bill Payment option.
