Trying to update Report Writer from V3036 to V3043 I get a java error.

MoneyDance Version 2020.1 (1928) purchased from Canada Apple Store
Report Writer V3036 to be replaced by V3043
Mac OSX 10.14.6
Model Name: Mac mini
  Model Identifier: Macmini8,1
  Processor Name: Intel Core i5
  Processor Speed: 3 GHz
  Number of Processors: 1
  Total Number of Cores: 6
  L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
  L3 Cache: 9 MB
  Memory: 8 GB
  Java V 8
Does anyone have a solution for this?

    Once you download from here:

    You MUST rename the file from reportwriter3043.mxt to reportwriter.mxt before you double-click it to install..

    Renaming the file fixed the load error but then MoneyDance complained about extension verification.

    Is there a fix for this?
    (There seems to be a problem with my screen shot attachment but the text of the message on the red banner is "The extension Report Writer is not verified and should be considered unsafe") This does not occur with V3036

    This simply means that IK have not signed the latest version of Mike's extension... You can ignore it, or install the signed version from Menu Manage Extensions.. Up to you...

    The only option I have with the "Apple edition" is to add from file.... because Report Writer does not show in the list of available. Ignore it is then.
    Thanks Stuart

    Ah yes, I can’t remember if Mike got that extension signed yet.

    Out of interest, does my toolbox extension show in the list and does it load/run (on the apple store version of MD)?

    Hi Stuart, there is no toolbox extension in the list of available in the Apple version 2020.1(1928) but I will try to locate in and install it from file

    Hello again Stuart, toolbox loaded from file without error but when I invoked it nothing happens. I’m going to try it on v2022.

    Cheers D

    The file version is here:

    Ah, yes, you must be on at least 2021.1(3056) for this to work.

    Can you also see extract_data, net_account_balances, list_future_reminders? I'm also interested whether they load OK or not?

    Hi Stuart, Toolbox runs OK in MD v2022 and installs from extension management. What a great tool I may be able to use it to find a solution to my Report Writer “no categories getting selected” issue.

    Thanks. D
