Microsoft Money Discontinued

Microsoft Money, the personal financial-management software developed by the Redmond-based company as a means to help you plan and achieve long-term financial goals and optimize investments, has gone bust. The product will be pulled from the market this month, meaning that you will not be able to purchase Microsoft Money after June 30th. If you have already purchased the product, Microsoft says you need to activate it by the 31st of January, 2011.

‘With banks, brokerage firms and Web sites now providing a range of options for managing personal finances, the consumer need for Microsoft Money Plus has changed. After suspending annual updates of Money Plus in 2008, Microsoft is announcing today that we will no longer offer Microsoft Money Plus for purchase after June 30, 2009. We would like to thank the many dedicated users who have been enthusiastic supporters of Microsoft Money over the years, as well as our partner financial institutions who helped pioneer a digital vision of financial management,” explained Microsoft.

The following products are affected by Microsoft's decision to end sales of Microsoft Money:
Microsoft Money Essentials
Microsoft Money Plus Deluxe
Microsoft Money Plus Premium
Microsoft Money Plus Home & Business


The upside is that Microsoft made sure to express its commitment to help you and your financial well-being by continuing to support and enhance the MSN Money web page (visit here ). The other upside is that you could continue to use Microsoft Money Plus indefinitely once it expires – just that you will be able to take advantage of just some of the features included in the product. Microsoft explained that you could use the software for as long as you want, but online services among other things will not be available after they expire. Also, Microsoft cannot guarantee that an expired Money Plus will play well with future operating systems and hardware configurations.
