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.

    Thanks to all 3 of you for your responses. I believe that my use of Sleep, and when I do it, was the underlying cause of the failure to update on time. I am satisfied with my current mode of working and think I understand what will and what won't happen.

    And thanks, derek kent, for explaining how to easily handle the manual security price updates I need to do.

    QL has been a great addition to the way I use MD, both in getting quotes as well as easily doing the manual updating. THANKS AGAIN.

    And thank,Sean, for stepping in to clarify Mac Sleep. You surely don't remember, but you and I go back a long ways, as we personally exchanged messages when I first moved to MD about 10 years ago, and I think even before then when I was contemplating moving from QuickenMac to something.

    Hi Dave,

    I definitely do remember and appreciate your sticking with Moneydance! I've still got our old email exchanges in the archive :)

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Mike your loader works perfectly set to Yahoo, for Australian stocks Alphadvantage was so slow.. My query... I have 2 data sets. I set the autoloader to different times (5 pm & 7 pm). The 5 pm worked, will the 7 pm work with Moneydance open but on the other data set.?

    Hi Faye

    Auto run in Quote Loader will only run the data set that is open.

    Different data sets can have different auto run settings.

    In your set up after the 5 pm run you would need to FILE – OPEN the other data set before 7 pm.

    That is unless you have two computers.

    Hope this helps.
