The quotes and exchange rates updater had been working fine since I changed to moneydance in 2019. A couple of months ago it stopped working.

I tried updating to 2021 and this did not fix the problem.

I am seeing an error where it says it is unable to get rate from <security> to $A
The base currency for this setup is the Australian dollar as are all the securities. Only securities that are exchange traded are selected in the configuration of the extension. There really should not be any need for it to do a currency conversion?
