MYOB First Accounts upgrade

MYOB First Accounts software has been discontinued for quite some time, and is officially not supported anymore by the software publisher.  The last version issued is MYOB First Accounts v3.5.

What can you do if you are still using MYOB First Accounts? You have 2 choices

  1. Continue using it, if there are no problems.
  2. Upgrade to latest version of MYOB Accounting

What are some of the problems you might face if you are still using MYOB First Accounts?

1. MYOB FirstAccounts licensing requirement requires user to request for a site key before you can use it.    The publisher no longer issues site key, and as such you will not be able to use the MYOB software when you need to format or upgrade your PC.

2. Older versions of MYOB software such as MYOB First Accounts may not be compatible with the latest operating system, such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.    If you continue using an older-designed software on a newer operating system, you might encounter problems which the publisher did not provide for then.
