I installed trial version of MM 2007 Delux from the web. I bouhght full
version MM 2007 Delux via Amazon and I am waiting for delivery. You often use
the term "retail"
Now I am considering if I bought the correct product. I was written
Microsoft Money 2007 Delux. What does "this retail" mean?

I don't know who/what thread you refer to.

In general, there are two distribution channels for Money. Retail and OEM.
Retail is license you go buy at the store or, worse for purposes of
reinstallation at a later date, by online download. The second channel is
OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). These licenses are bought in bulk by
computer manufacturers (CompaqHP/Dell/Gateway/Sony...) for pennies apiece
and are then bundled with PCs they sell. The prime way the OEM licenses
differ is that they tend not to come with standalone installation CDs and
the OEM is supposedly responsible for end user support, not Microsoft. This
latter difference is pretty synthetic since Microsoft doesn't provide all
that much real support besides how-to anyway and the OEMs largely shirk the
responsibility besides.

Without knowing the context of what you are responding to, I hope this
answer helps.

Thank you. I have started afraid I bought a wrong version of Money so I asked
the question.
Happy New Year
