MONEY 2005 WITHOUT INTERNET LINK


S

I decided this morning to test my Money Deluxe 2005 program by disconnecting my
DSL cable internet connection BEFORE turning on my computer. I wanted to see
what inpact that had when I opened Money. Fortunately, Money performed as I had
hoped and expected. All my current information was there and shown. When I went
to investments it showed the last update was last night when I was last on the
computer with my internet connection. Obviously, when I tried a link that I
knew would require the internet it showed the cannot connect screen. All this
was to assure me that I DO have my Money program working on MY computer and it
does NOT need a link to the MSN servers in order to work. FYI. Steve

Try getting help. (Not that you go there very often, but...)

Yea, Dick. I know that "help" is online. Realistically, I will be connected to
the internet via my DSL whenever I'm using Money 2005. My objective here was to
assure I could assess the program even if my internet connection did not work.
Who knows what MS can do to a good program. Steve

I suppose that the good thing about online help is that MS, theoretically,
can keep it up-to-date, which they never would have done by patching the
CD's or Smart update.

You mean, theoretically, they can fix errors and back-level information in
it. I'll bet they don't. I think they just put it online to make the
download smaller. I think they are pushing so hard on the download
installations to make a precious few more quid for themselves on the sale
since they probably don't make a guinea on the $23 copy at Sam's Club.
(Especially after I return it for retail+tax+shipping.)

Having tried looking there for the neat new M05 Spending Averages, I can say
that it doesn't help all that much.
