Having just updated, I am confronted by a notice that says I have a Preview version only. Please sort it out.

    Hi Michael

    You only get a free upgrade to 2022 if you purchase a licence key for 2021. I your purchase was for a earlier version than 2021 you can get a 50% discount on a purchase of a 2022 key.
    You can check and then if you want upgrade your key at using Upgrading box
    You can downgrade the version at

    If you have already purchased a 2022 key then the new key would have been sent by email, check trash folder. Enter the new key into Moneydance

    Hope this helps

    Hi Michael,

    I can see you’ve received a reply from one of our knowledgeable Moneydance customers. To add to this useful information I thought it's worth mentioning that I have checked our records using your email address and I can confirm your license key entitles you to a free upgrade to Moneydance 2022.

    So, all you need to do is to register the new version by entering your current license key. Please select Help --> Register Moneydance to enter the license key.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    Thanks, Derek.
    I am up to date with payments.
    Maybe I didn't register the update properly, but I am OK now.
    Best wishes,

    Does the download process include the instructions to go to the help menu and enter your new license key under Register Moneydance ? If it does, I missed it.

    After downloading Moneydance 2022.2 (4060). You should launch Moneydance and when you are in register view, you should navigate to Help->Register Moneydance and enter your license key there.

    The instruction for registering the software is outlined in this article of the Knowledge base.

    Please keep us posted on your progress, Thank you!
