Registering an update



06 Jul, 2022 12:22 AM

I have just purchased an update for my Moneydance app. The activation instruction on the email which provided the download is to select Help>Register Moneydance menu item and then to enter the new key. However, I don't have a sub-item under Help marked Register Moneydance. Where can I find this menu please?

    I'm a fellow user.

    The lack of the menu item is a bug in the latest Moneydance build. However if you scroll to the very right of the Moneydance Windows there should be a enter license button within the blue bar at the top of the screen.

    Thank you DWG. Subsequent to my request for help, I stumbled across the
    same solution by accident. It’s strange that the misleading instruction has
    been left in the introductory email for registration.

    Not really, it is a bug that the menu item is not there.

    Install/run toolbox extension. A red register button will appear. Use that.

    Hi Stuart
    Thanks for your help but for some unknown reason the toolbox extension
    refused to download. However, I have somehow managed to register by other
    means so the problem is now solved.

    Odd. It should have been on the MD menu, manage extensions. Find toolbox, click install. Was it not there?
