A have used Moneydance for decades and my copy of the program seems suddenly to have become unregistered, entirely on its own. I can no longer add any entries unless I agree wo buy a copy of the program, which is clearly nonsense. I need to continue using the program urgently - PLEASE ADVISE

    I have already outlined the problem above. Why has the program arbitrarily become a trial version?

    Presumably you've recently upgraded to MD 2022 whereas you're licensed up to version 2021..?

    You can download 2021 from here:

    Thank you for responding.

    I cannot recall updating to MD 2022 but presumably must have done. I was not asked to pay for an upgrade and assumed that it was a free one. I have found a download .dmg file downloaded on 6 November 2021 and the current ‘about Moneydance’ shows as below.

    If I go back to 2021, will there be any implications as far as data security is concerned? If 2022 was a paid upgrade, why was i not asked to do this or warned? I’m puzzled!

    Many people have been caught out.

    It’s fine to downgrade. There will be NO data issues. Dataset format is identical.

    Hello Stuart,

    Away from my desk at present, but many thanks for the update and the download link. Glad to know that I wasn’t the only one to be caught out!

    Best regards
