How do I find out if I have 60 day trial version of Money Plus? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I upgraded from MS Money 2004 to Money Plus Deluxe v17.0.120.3817 .
    The download site said I was installing the 60 day trial version.

    When I start the program I do not get any message asking me to Activate or saying that I have the 60 day trial version.
    I cannot find anything on the Tools menu or any other place in the program that indicates that I need to Activate and that I actually the 60 day trial version
    It appears that I have the regular version

    I don’t want to wait for 60 days to find out what I have, or have it expire

    How do I find out if I have 60 day trial version?
    What should I do if I do?
    If I have the regular usable version, will I ever have to pay anything?

    Thanks,
    Ric

  • Version 17.0.120.3817 is not a trial version.

    I don't know what "download site" you might have been using.  The Microsoft download site does not say "trial" for the Sunset versions. http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/search.aspx?q=MONEY

  • Thanks for replying

    I just went to the page you suggested

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/search.aspx?q=MONEY

    And selected  the Money Plus Sunset Deluxe download

    And it dowloaded and bought me to this page

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/confirmation.aspx?id=20738

    that said

    Thank you for downloading
    Money Plus Sunset Deluxe

    But when I go to 
    Start > All Programs
    the only Money program that is there is
    Microsoft Money Plus > Money Plus
    When I open the program and look at
    Help > About Microsoft Money
    it says I have
    Microsoft Money Plus Deluxe v17.0.120.3817

  • That's the way it works. Not a trial. The US Sunset versions are Money Plus with online functions disabled therefore not requiring servers to work. If you want to see the word "Sunset" in your installation, see Help->About->LicenseTerms.

     

    Save your installation file in a safe place. We don't know how long the download will be available.

  • You are right

    I looked at the License Terms and I've got it

    And in Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs
    I saw Microsoft Money Plus
    Is that a safe place?

  • You are in the right place in your installation. Everything you describe meets expectations for a good installation, Pushing buttons in the Add/Remove Programs would be unsafe.
