Re: MYOB V19 shutdown by latest Windows 10 update

Exactly, which hardly 'saves you money' after having an accounting package that you purchased (once), and that worked perfectly well (normally)!  I'd actually migrated to the new system, but went back to the old version as it was remarkably faster to use.  Personally, I'd save the moniker 'slow-movers' for those who are happy to sit and watch a processing circle go around for minutes at a time :-)

Re: MYOB V19 shutdown by latest Windows 10 update

My goodness, haven't you made a whole heap of assumptions about how my business is structured, and what 'subscriptions' I might have.  All of which, I might add, are completely incorrect.  Honestly..... assumptions!!  I'm glad you are enjoying the new MYOB version.  I take it you have nothing further to offer regarding my actual question about a fix?

I've since tried the help in the link at the start of the thread and my v19 now works.  Hooray!! So much angst in the meantime tho I think I'll call it a day.

Me too!!!  I'm not sure where you all are in the world, but if I could buy Robert and Mike a beer, I absolutely would!!!  Living Legends.  I'm so grateful.  I'm using the new version, but I keep going back to V.19 - just because it is just SO much faster!!  Here's to Windows not blowing it out again any time soon! At least not till after Year End.  Mike and Robert - THANK YOU, and seriously, if you are in Auckland, contact me - I have beer for you. :-)

Re: MYOB V19 shutdown by latest Windows 10 update

If you want to simplify the little MYOB.bat file edit it as follows and save.

 

@Echo off

start C:\MYOB18\Myob.exe "F:\OneDrive\MYOB\your file name goes here.MYO"

 

This will not pause and wait for you to continue. Also the DOS box will immeadiatly close after starting MYOB.

Nice and quick.

 

Cheers

Re: MYOB V19 shutdown by latest Windows 10 update

Hi,

When windows updated and blocked my V17 MYOB, I had two company files open and one that I now can't open.   I'm concerned that if I do what the link says that I'll be locked out of the two company files I already have opened as well?  I was considering doing Option 1 but I don't feel very confident.  Will this definitely work?

Hi @Bernieozz , not sure which is option 1, but the post from David (@howevr) at 5/3/20 11:01am re creating a batch file and a shortcut to it will definitely work and will not affect your system's security. 

 

You can simplify the batch file a little as per David's recent post. 

 

PS You will need a batch file and a shortcut for each file you want to open, as the MYOB file name is included in the batch file.

Re: MYOB V19 shutdown by latest Windows 10 update

About slow running for AccountRight 2019 - some suggestions:

- clear the browsing history (or cache) in your web browser

- have an IT prosessional look at your Internet connection

- for intensive work - such as a doing payroll for over 10 employees or a  big invoicing session - consider switching to Offline mode, by checking-out your file under Go Offline. Other users will still be able to run enquirie and print reports and you will still be able to complete your govt. payroll reporting STP (Aust) or PayDayFiling (NZ), provided your computer has an Internet connection. When you've finished, you can check-in your updated data file, by selectin Go Online.
