Microsoft® Money

Last Updated 02/02/2011

As you are probably aware, Microsoft is sunsetting Microsoft Money on February 1, 2011. As part of the sunset process, Microsoft will be discontinuing all online services including 2-way OFX connectivity (sometimes called "Direct Connect") in all versions of Microsoft Money on February 1, 2011. Money users will no longer be able to directly download statements from within Money. While 2-way OFX will no longer be available, your financial institution's customers can continue to download and import OFX files from your institution's website (sometimes called 1-way OFX, "Active Statement" or "Web Connect") as long as your institution makes that service available to customers. For details on the Money sunset and the end of online services, please refer to Microsoft’s FAQ page.

In addition, customer support provided by Microsoft will be discontinued on February 1, 2011. From that point on, only downloadable self-help will be available to Money users. Information on how Money users can download and use self-help is explained here.

Finally, Microsoft has released 'Sunset' versions of Money Plus Deluxe and Money Plus Home & Business that do not require online activation. This version will allow Money users to keep their Money files and transactional history (on current and future machines) but will not allow access to online services or premium services. Full details and links to the Download Center can be found here. The Sunset versions of Money Plus are free of charge.
