    Hi Hermann,

    Yes, you will be able to use Moneydance on both your Windows 7 PC, and your Windows XP PC. I however highly advise against using Windows XP for sensitive financial data, the operating system is no longer supported by Microsoft and thus has become a playground for malicious software.

    We support connections to a number of TD Ameritrade institutions, could you specify which one you've got accounts with? Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Scotia bank, or Tango supports direct OFX connections, which Moneydance (and other financial software) requires in order to talk directly to a bank.  The best way to get your transactions into Moneydance is to use a web browser to download them from your bank's web site.  You can download into QFX, QIF, OFX or OFC files (sometimes referred to as Quicken or MS Money files), any of which will import cleanly into Moneydance.   You can also open your bank's download page directly (after entering the appropriate address in the Account->Edit Account menu) by going to the menu bar and selecting Online->Open Account Website.

    If your bank begins to support direct OFX connections in the future, we will be happy to work with them.

    If you haven't already, I encourage you to download our free trial version and 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!

    Thank you for your help.

    I have now purchased Moneydance and it does what I need. Downloads from my
    financial institutions also work quite well.
    Thanks again for your advice regarding Windows XP.
