Microsoft Money products since Money 2007 have utilized a digital rights management system which
required users to activate their product at or shortly after setup. Now that the Microsoft Money product line is
nearing the end of its supported lifecycle, the activation services will also be ending. To enable users the ability
to continue to use Microsoft Money manually, (without online quotes or online banking services),
Microsoft is releasing "Money Plus Deluxe Sunset", and a "Money Plus Home and Business Sunset". The Sunset
skus do not require activation, and come preconfigured with no online services, thus allowing users access
to their Microsoft Money data files.
The Money Sunset SKU for Money Plus Deluxe can be found on
the Microsoft site at
Sunset SKU for Money Plus Home and Business can be found on the Microsoft site at
Note that it should be possible to upgrade existing US versions of Money to this version. Those with UK or
other country versions shouldn't need it as they do not have activation.
