Installation and support questions for the discontinued Microsoft Money
What product support will be offered for Money Plus?
Support will be available through Jan. 31, 2011. Refer to the product lifecycle
for general Microsoft product support
information and the Money lifecycle
information about Money Plus. Product Activation will be supported through Jan. 31, 2011. Once the product
activation service is no longer available, Money cannot be set up in a new configuration.
What if I get a new computer and need to reinstall?
The license agreement describes
some limitations for setting up Money on different computers. To use Money on a different computer, you will
need to have the original media you first used to set up Money (either the original CD, or the original setup
program you received when you purchased Money Plus online), and your activation code. Money will need to be
activated on the new computer before Jan. 31, 2011.
Update: 6 Aug 2009: Later this year, Microsoft
will release versions of Money Plus Deluxe and Money Plus Home & Business that will not require online activation
The EULA says I can only install on 2 computers. Can I uninstall on one, and install on another?
Yes, you may do that using your original installation method (CD or download).
If I have to activate Money Plus, can I do that after online sales end?
Yes, you can activate after sales have ended. Activation must take place before Jan. 31, 2011.
I purchased the optional Extended Download Service when I bought Money online. What happens
to that? How long will my extended download be supported?
The Extended Download Service provides
multiple downloads of software purchased in a single order for a period of two years from the date of purchase.

Yes, as long as you activate the new installation before Jan. 31, 2011. Keep a copy of the original
media and activation key. As previously noted, some features will not work once online services have expired.
