Money Plus Sunset Home and Business is designed to be a replacement for expired versions of Money Plus Home and Business. Note: The Money Plus Sunset versions come with online self-help only.
All versions of Money Plus sold at retail and online, required users to perform an â€œOnline Activationâ€ step in order to keep using the product, even if online services had already expired. Online Activation was also required for every machine onto which Money Plus was installed. Now that Money Plus is no longer available for purchase, the online activation step will eventually become unnecessary and unsupported. This Money Plus Sunset package is targeted at removing the activation dependency.
There are two versions of Money Plus Sunset. The Money Plus Sunset Deluxe version is meant to replace Premium, Deluxe, and Essentials versions of Money Plus. The Money Plus Sunset Home and Business version is meant to replace Money Plus Home and Business.
Please note that Money Plus Sunset versions come preconfigured with:
- No online services (no online quotes, no bill payment, no statement downloads initiated by Money, no data sync with MSN Money online services, etcâ€¦)
- No support services (support services are limited to online self-help only, see Money Plus Sunset EULA and Microsoftâ€™s Support Lifecycle pages for more details)
- No need to activate the product
If your installation of Money Plus currently has active online services, or if your installation of Money Plus is still covered by support services according to its EULA , we recommend that you NOT upgrade to this version of Money Plus Sunset. After the date of 1/31/2011, (the projected last date for any and all online services and all product support services for all versions of Money), we recommend everyone who is still using Money upgrade to a Money Plus Sunset version.
For users whose online services have already expired and who are willing to rely only on online self-help for support services, you may choose to upgrade to this Money Plus Sunset version before 1/31/2011 in order to avoid any future reactivation dependency. If you install this Money Plus Sunset package, it is recommended that you keep a safe copy of your original Money Plus software, (Deluxe, Premium, Essentials, or Home and Business), a copy of your most recent activation key, and a copy of this Money Plus Sunset package.
