If you were running 2019.2(1868) on windows then the same key should work when the Linux version of Moneydance is installed.
If you are changing your operating system on your computer have you already lost access to windows 7. Did you copy your data set before the convention?
It’s my understanding the Linux installation of Moneydance uses the same version and build definition as the windows and Mac installation. For the current released version this would be 2019.3(1880) and for the preview 2019.3(1881).
When you have installed Moneydance on Linux in Moneydance click HELP -SHOW DOCUMENT FOLDER to open a file explorer. Close Moneydance and copy the Moneydance data set folder to that location. A data set is a folder containing other folders and files with the naming convention yourdatasetname.moneydance.
Open Moneydance. It should open in the welcome window with your data set listed on the right, double click to open

From the license agreement I should able to use my Linux copy without a new license (as soon as the Linux version is working I will be removing my windows copy)
The problem I need solved is how to get my Linux version to accept the key that I have. I don't think I will have any problem getting the data moved. It's moved. Because of it's size I don't want to access it until I have a valid key.
Thanks for you comments. Waiting on response from support.

Good suggestion. I have been using the one displayed in the About of the Moneydance on windows. I just booted windows, copied that key to my clip board. Saved it in a file.
Booted Linux. Started Moneydance, pasted that key into the Register Moneydance panel and got the message "The license key that you entered is incorrect. ...". Went to Moneydance web site, pasted into the key filed. Said I was elgible for a free upgrade.
What can I do next?
The message you received indicates that the key you inputted is already valid for Moneydance 2019. If you are sure the version on Linux is 2019 it should work. If it does not work and its being entered correctly, no spaces etc, the its one for support.
I could post on Sean’s the Moneydances software developers Slack site if you don’t get a response from support in the hopes he will respond.
