using windows 8.1, Unable to activate my Money Plus 2007, getting error code 1020, please help. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know just enough about computers to be dangerous to myself... lol...  But i have been using this older version of Money plus 2007 for the last two months with out any problems.  I originally used an even older version of money but when I upgraded to a new laptop (windows 8.1) the 2007 version was the only one I found that was compatible.  I ordered it online, received it.. in original unopened packaging, I installed it, imported my older money files with out any problems and was up and running with out incident.  

    I never bothered to follow the activation prompts because I have no need for the online services, i use the program primarily as a check book and for tracking expenses, budget reports, etc...  (plus I know ]the program is no longer supported).  But today I guess I hit that 60 wall and it prompted that I would no longer be able to enter any type of transaction until after the program is activated.  I have the original Product Key and entered the information... in return I received an error:"code 1020".  I have internet access and the product key was entered correctly...

    How can I get around this issue and get back to utilizing the program?  

    Need some help here, and please keep the answers simple to understand.... lol

    Thanks in advance for you time and info..

  • You want to install Money Plus Deluxe. See the link in the second post in this forum. You then want to install the patch from the first post in this forum. There is no activation.

  • Also, if you purchased Money 2007 from someone who takes returns (or via eBay that has a purchase protection plan) try to return it for a refund as there was no way to get it to work.
