When you download Moneydance from our website, you'll initially be running the trial version.

When viewing the Summary page, you'll see a blue bar at the top of the screen that displays -
"Demo mode: You may manually enter X more transactions as part of your free trial".

Once you've purchased Moneydance you'll receive a license key via email from our payment processing partners. You need to enter your license key to remove the trial limitations.

You can select Help > Register Moneydance to enter the license key.

To check if the program is registered, choose Help > Register Moneydance (again). If the license key has been accepted, you'll see - "This copy of Moneydance is registered. Thank you for your support".

Alternatively, you can navigate to Help > About Moneydance (on a Mac, choose Moneydance > About Moneydance). In the window that opens you'll either see 'Unregistered' or your license key will be displayed.
