I downloaded Money 2007 about a year ago, and I just had to reload Windows on
my computer. I can access the directory where Money was loaded, but I need
to download and reinstall it. I don't have the original authorization code
however. Is there anyway to recover it or reinstall without it?

I think you would need to have purchased the extended download if
you don't have the install file.

What is the extended download? I don't remember exactly how I installed the
last version, but I assume that you download the program file, and then you
receive an authorization code when you make the purchase?

I would hate to have to purchase another copy of Money 2007 when I just
purchased it last year.

He was referring to downloading the file again, if you don't have the
original. Extended download is an extra fee to permit download that
after the initial download window expires.

Paying the fee is unnecessary if you take the prudent step of burning
the download file to CD or DVD, along with a copy of the authorization
code. If doing so, don't install from the file you downloaded to your
hard disk. Instead, install it from the CD you made. That's the only
way to test that the file you saved to CD will actually work in the
future, should you need it.

My CD/DVD writer has Lightscribe capability. I used that to burn the
authorization code into the label. A magic marker works just as well.
I also saved a copy of the authorization email on the CD, so it's
always together with the install file.
