TIK has improved the security on the use of unsigned extensions. This is in build 1899 which is still in preview mode. Once it is released for general use you will see a warning message on the summary screen if you are using unverified extensions. This included all of my extensions. I have worked with TIK to get my extensions verified which includes Quote Loader. These are now available on my repository in https://bitbucket.org/mikerb/moneydance-2019/downloads/.

To verify an extension I have had to make my source code available to TIK. The author of the back end of Quote Loader (hleofxquotes) was not prepared to do this and thus I have redesigned Quote Loader to be standalone. I would like to thank hleofxquotes for his work and help in making Quote Loader an extension of choice.

I have asked TIK to add Quote Loader to the list of available extensions. This is being considered.

DerekKent23 has written/updated a PDF on how to install and set up Quote Loader. This is accompanied by a couple of videos. These assume Quote Loader has been added to the list of available extensions. Before that list is updated please download the file securityquoteload.mxt from my repository (https://bitbucket.org/mikerb/moneydance-2019/downloads/) and add it using the MD Extensions/Manage Extensions/Add from File. The updated PDF will be available shortly.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON MY WIKI (https://bitbucket.org/mikerb/moneydance-2019/wiki/Home) ABOUT UPGRADING FROM THE OLD VERSION OF QUOTE LOADER. YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE RHUMBA EXTENSION.

    Well, guess what: all of a sudden it worked! It's odd because I had the extension installed, and no matter what settings I tried, it would not work. I removed the extension, restarted MD. I re-installed the extension, restarted MD. I set source to Yahoo, and when I clicked "Get new prices", it worked. So I think we're all good. I'll see what happens Tuesday when we have Monday prices to retrieve.

    Hi Tom

    The first time you installed Quote Loader did you restart Moneydance? See screen shot with note ”Please restart Moneydance after installing”
    If not, it won’t run as you described.

    The same instruction is included on page 2 of the PDF in large type. The PDF is attached to the release notes at https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/discussions/investments/4914-the...

    If you have not read the PDF take a read to ensure you are getting the best out of Quote Loader.

    Hope this helps.
