Find & Replace Not Working

Since updating to v5117 Find & Replace isn't working on my system. The page takes ages to load & then when I do a 'Find' it just hangs with the cursor spinning endlessly.

Anyone else got this? Any cures?

    Thanks for the update Stuart.

    As reported elsewhere v5118 only launches in Demo mode and won't accept a valid license key.

    I have rolled back to v5064 for the time being.

    I had bought MD in 2022, and the license key is valid for all 2022 and 2023 editions. If your license key was bought in 2022 or earlier, you will need to buy and upgrade license, as I did this morning.

    That's the interesting thing. I renewed the license last March, so this should be a free upgrade.

    Hopefully another fix is in the pipeline!

    The older license keys that I would expect to work with Moneydance 2024 have the following prefixes:

    The prefix for my license is P264

    I'm afraid you have a Moneydance 2022 license, which does not qualify for a free upgrade to Moneydance 2024.

    I suspect you purchased it just prior to the release of Moneydance 2023, which was late March 2023.

    License was bought on 31st March & was definitely as an upgrade to Moneydance 2023!

    Support will have to advise obviously they have access to the records.

    The odd thing here is that when I updated to v5117 there wasn't an issue with the license. It was only when I went to v5118.

    Correct. IK have said there was a bug in their license checker and it wasn’t detecting invalid licenses in 5117. They addressed this in 5118.

    Received the update alert on MD 2023.3 of the 2024 version

    Upgraded and Ops - Licence Not valid

    That was Yesterday Friday April 19, 2024

    Had to find older 2023.3 and reinstall to get full access again

    Hi P Phillips,

    I raised the license issue with Tech Support under a separate Private message, and they very quickly resolved the problem.

    If you haven't already done this, I recommend you to do the same.

    Thank you for the suggestion

    But as I have already mentioned elsewhere

    This issue is now closed to me.

    Have moved on
