I've used Moneydance on my Windows PC for a few years now and it works great for my needs. I've now been using my Chromebook laptop much more and am wondering if I can download the program onto it? I think I have the license somewhere, if that is necessary? If it is possible, will everything on my PC automatically come onto my Chromebook?

Thanks for any help you can give me on this.

    To use Moneydance on a Chromebook it is necessary to enable the Linux subsystem on the Chromebook and install the Linux DEB version of Moneydance into this subsystem.

    A Knowledge Base article talks about this:

    Yes the license is necessary you must enter the license into any installation of Moneydance you use, it unlocks the trial limit.

    You do not state whether you wish to move completely to the Chromebook or whether you wish to continue using Moneydance on both systems with the same data.

    If you wish to move completely look at:

    If you wish to use both systems look at

    https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/kb/syncing-and-sharing-data/syncing-with-other-computers

    I do not know if anyone has tried using syncing with a Chromebook, so do not know what, and if, any of the methods work. In theory Dropbox Connection should work as it is self contained within Moneydance.
