FAQ's
Can MPD be used alongside my paper system?

MPD is designed to work as a standalone system although some users may prefer to write their transactions in to the paper versions and then enter on to MPD. However, such are the extensive benefits of MPD that we would always recommend that MPD be used as your complete system on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.


Is a MPD trial available?

No, there is no trial program available, instead we have spent considerable resource on the video clips – these, along with the downloadable instruction manual, should give you a very good overview.


Can MPD be used on 32 and 64-bit machines?

MPD is designed for use on the majority of Windows machines available.  However, to avoid any confusion the points below should clarify:

WINDOWS

  • 32-bit - Fully Compatible
  • 64-bit - Fully Compatible

MICROSOFT OFFICE

  • 32-bit - Fully Compatible
  • 64-bit - NOT Compatible

By default, Microsoft Office 2010 installs the 32-bit version of Office 2010 even if your computer is running 64-bit editions of Windows.

Important    The 32-bit version of Office 2010 is the recommended option for most people, because it prevents potential compatibility issues with other 32-bit applications, specifically third-party add-ins that are available only for 32-bit operating systems.

For clarification of this point refer to the following Microsoft article http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/word-help/choose-the-32-bit-or-64-bit-version-of-office-HA010369476.aspx

If you have Office 64-bit installed it is recommended that you reinstall the 32-bit version, unless there is a specific reason that you require it.  You will then be able to install and run the MPD program successfully.


Does MPD work with all Streamline and Home machines?

MPD is created on the Microsoft Office Access platform and has been tested on all Streamline and Home machine versions available at the time of development. For machines such as 2000H that do not have MS Access installed you may need to install the Microsoft Runtime version of Access which is available free of charge from here .  Please note that this is a Microsoft product and is not in any way related to MoneyPlan or UBT.

For machines that have a Microsoft Office other than Professional the Runtime program noted above will need to be installed.  Please note that where a Microsoft Professional trial edition has been used and expired this will need to be uninstalled before installing the Runtime version.

For any technical queries relating to your Microsoft Office suite please contact Streamline support.


Will I need to subscribe to MPD every year?

Will you be providing training?

Training is an area that is under constant development.  This includes initiatives for local presentations and also strutured training programs through UBT.  On the MPD considerable effort has been put in to the pdf Help manual and video clips available on the website.  We believe that this will give you everything that you need operate and get the most from your program.  We also suggest that you regularly revisit the Training and Money Articles page to get the benefit of our regularly updated content.  And of course, if you have suggestions, tips or ideas please submit them.
