Money 2007 (also 2006) Online Service Expiration

If you see a message that indicates that your Money 2007 or 2006 online service is expiration, then you should ignore it.

It appears that you may have experienced a problem which shouldn't have manifested itself with Money 2006 or Money 2007, and occurs due to a convoluted scenario based on the file you have, whether it has been upgraded and the last time it was used online

I am reliably informed that this problem is fixed, and a simple close/reopen should be sufficient.

Of course, if you know different, please let me know.

Money plus rebate form

I saw a question a few days ago which asked what was on the rebate form that you get after an online purchase.

This was an interesting question.... how do you read the small print, when you can't see the small print until after you've made the purchase?

So, I made a copy of the text (but not the form...), and put it in an article. website currently unavailable

The FAQ website at is currently unavailable and has been down since 7:20pm UK time this evening.

I did a few code updates to reduce the compilation time, and seem to have hung the site... Because it is remotely hosted, I need to get someone to reset it for me, which may not be quick :(

In the meantime, please use the MSN or Google cache to view it.

Maybe in the morning, it will be working again. I hope so...

....update 11:15pm.....just back up now. Just under 4 hours downtime. Must not complain, at least I can go to sleep without worrying it was still unavailable.

Microsoft Money 2005 Online Services Expiry on 1 September 2007

On September 1st, most people using Microsoft Money 2005 Online services will have found that these expired. This is per the Online Services Policy that you would have accepted when you first used the product.

Microsoft® Money 2005 includes up to two (2) years of Internet-based Services. You will be able to use the Internet-based Services in Microsoft Money 2005 for a period of two (2) years from installation of the product or until September 1, 2007, whichever is earlier. After expiration, if you elect not to upgrade or are unable to upgrade to a version of Microsoft Money that continues to support Microsoft Money 2005 Internet-based Services, you will not be able to automatically update your accounts and investment values in Microsoft Money 2005. You will still be able to view and edit your financial data in Microsoft Money 2005 and to manually update your accounts and investment values. Microsoft may from time to time without notice, automatically download and install onto your computer updates for Microsoft Money, including updates necessary for you to continue to use the Internet-based Services.

Some of the features of Online services can be found at FAQ Article498

To work around this issue, you must upgrade to a later version (Microsoft Money Plus is the latest version).

Note: Microsoft Money UK products did not expire on this date. They will now expire in December 2009.
