Money requires an update to use online services

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.

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?
