    My copy of Money 2005 says that since 1/2/2011 it requires an update to
    continue using online services. But cannot find an update file! Does this
    mean that the software has now time-expired on us??? I realise that
    Microsoft no longer wish to support the software, but surely it should keep
    running as it is and not throw up erroneous messages seeking update files
    that do not seem to exist?

    Microsoft has discontinued support for all on line services. It has
    made available "sunset" editions of the US versions so that the
    programme still works without online links. There is a work around
    for the UK version of Money 2005 that allows the creation of a version
    that will run without needing any online updates. Details can be
    found here: http://money.mvps.org/faq/article/630.aspx

    You will note that you require to have a fully patched and operative
    version of Money 2005 to be able to create the "permanent" version.

    It is totally unneeded for Money 2004. The install disk for Money
    2004 works as it came.

  8. I have Money 2003. I can't now update stocks and shares online - they have
    to be done manually. Some are foreign and the exchange rate also used to be
    updated automatically. Will the fix described below work for that or is
    there something else I can use. Alternatively, is there another accounting
    package that anyone can recommend?

    The latter. Search for PocketSense and hleOfxQuote. Also see
    http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/money/threads?ppud=4 and
    especially note threads with "UK" in the file.
