I bought a new pc and I need to move Moneydance to it. Of course, I don't want to lose any data.
Thanks for helping

    Hi Renzo,

    You need to download and install the same version of Moneydance that you were using onto your new PC.

    If you were using MD 2019, then you can d/l it here:
    https://infinitekind.com/download-moneydance-personal-finance-software

    Prior versions from here:
    https://infinitekind.com/previous-versions-of-moneydance

    You can use your existing license key on the new installation.

    Next copy your data file to the new PC using a flash drive. Do not try to export anything. Simply copy the data file, the same way that you would copy any other file.

    Thanks Kevin,
    may I take advantage of your experience once more?
    Moviedancer moved to the new PC and is properly working, with the right data from backup. Great!
    It's everything in Italian like the original setup, but  the "date of the operation" is now on English style (year/month/day).
    How is possible to invert the order (day/month/year)?
    Thanks a lot

    Hi Renzo

    The date format can be changed under FILE (MONEYDANCE on Mac) – PREFERENCES.
    Make the change, close and reopen Moneydance.

    Hope this helps.
