I recently purchased Quicken 2016 and have not been able to get it to work on my Windows 10 system. I have installed and re-installed several times and have spent way too much time in chats with their support people trying to get it to work. They claim it is an issue with .NETFramework 4.0. Win 10 comes with .NET 4.6 and won't allow 4.0 to install. Will your software run without any issues on Windows 10?

I am looking for simple home bookkeeping software that will give me a check register, allow easy reconciliation of checking accounts with the bank statements, and categorize expenses to make it easier at tax time. Will MoneyDance do this?

Can I download and try MoneyDance before purchasing? I

Thank you,
Rick Bernard

    Hi Rick,

    You can d/l the free trial version here:

    I'm using Moneydance in a Win 10 32-bit environment on my laptop and a Win 10 64-bit environment on my desktop. No issues with either setup.

    Hi Rick,

    As Kevin pointed out, we offer a free trial version that will allow you to experiment with the program before you decide if you would like to purchase it. The demo version is fully functional and allows you to manually enter 100 transactions. Imported transactions are not limited, so you'll be able to fully test connections with your bank. If you decide to purchase the program at a later date you can keep all your data, the license key simply unlocks the ability to manually enter more transactions. You can download the trial version of Moneydance from here:

    For more information on how to get the most out of your trial period, check out our blog post on the subject.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance, and thank you for your interest in Moneydance!

    Well, as fate would have it, my brand new install of QuickBooks Pro has quit after a Windows 10 update yesterday. I tried setting up a second account in the trial of MoneyDance and added several new accounts and categories and it looks pretty good for a small business application as well.

    There seems to be many reports available, but I don't see a Balance Sheet which is a critical report for a business. Is there a way to create this report or add this function into MoneyDance?
