I have Moneydance on my Mac, however, I have recently bought a new Windows computer and wondered how I download the programme onto the new computer and transfer the information?

    Hi Barbara,

    You need to download and install the same version of Moneydance onto the Windows machine that you are using on the Mac. (of course, you should d/l the Windows version.)

    Provided that you purchased Moneydance via the Moneydance website (as opposed to the Apple Store or else where then you should use the following links...

    If you were using MD 2019, then you can d/l it here:

    If you were using an earlier version, then you can d/l it here:

    You should then COPY your data file over to the PC using a flash drive (or whatever means you like). Do not try exporting anything. Simply COPY the data file in the same manner that you would COPY any other file.
    You can position the data file in it's default location or somewhere more convenient. e.g. a Moneydance folder inside your Documents folder. It's up to you.

    Once you've installed Moneydance and copied over your data file. Start Moneydance.
    You will likely be greeted by the Moneydance Welcome Screen.
    Click the 'Open Other' link on the Welcome Screen.
    A file browser will open allowing you to navigate to the data file that you just copied over from your Mac.

    I would appreciate it if you could take a moment afterwards to comment on the following thread with regards creating a Moneydance KB article on how to transfer a Moneydance installation from one machine to another.
