What is the best procedure?

I'm running Windows 10 on a Desktop (all-in-one) with data backed up to my One-drive.

Kind regards

    Hi Brian,

    You should download the latest build (currently MD 2017.7.1 (1671) from here:
    http://infinitekind.com/download-moneydance-personal-finance-software

    Install it on the new machine. You can use your existing license key to register it.

    You can then copy your data file over to the new computer. (Don't bother with trying to use backups or export and import.) Simply copy the data file from the old machine and transfer it to the new one - the same way that you would transfer an Excel file or a Word file.

    If you need help with that, post back and I'll try to walk you through it.
