Dear Sirs,

I got a new compuiter and I would like to continue working with my Moneydance.

When I install my install file (moneydance_windows_amd64.exe) it doesn't install in the start menu.
When I want to import my exported account, it returns message: Error reading file: java.lang.NullPointelException
and crashes.

Could you please help me with this issue?

    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    Firstly, the steps for moving your data file/s from a computer to another are outlined in this article of the Knowledge base.

    Secondly, I've checked our records using your email address and I have located your purchase history. I can confirm your license key is valid for use with Moneydance 2017, Moneydance 2019 and Moneydance 2020.
    In this case, we'd recommend downloading and installing Moneydance 2020.2 (1929) here.

    Alternatively, if you would prefer upgrading to Moneydance 2022, you can enter your current license key into the 'Upgrading?' box on this page to redeem a 50% discount. After purchasing, you'll be sent a new license key via email.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    Maddy, Infinite Kind Support
