Extremely basic YNAB 4 question

I know it's unsupported as of 2019, but I would only be using it to refer to historical data.

I have used it exclusively on the Mac, but now want to update to a newer MacOS that will take away my ability to run it.

I do, however, have a Windows 10 machine as well. Are the data files cross-platform, so that I could use my Windows machine to do what my Mac used to do?

Thanks!

  • I just bought a piece of garbage MS Surface 3 just to run 3 ancient Windows programs that don't even run on 10, because I was sick of backing up and troubleshooting my resource-draining virtual machine.  In setting it up, I was like, Hey! I can load my old YNAB4 stuff on it!  Now I have 4 legacy programs to run!

    So yes, it works fine, even on Windows 8.1 :).

      dakinemaui I know YNAB4 runs fine up through Catalina and Big Sur, using that patch, but I haven't seen evidence of it working on M1.

      Can you confirm that it does?

    • JoeDid Can't confirm, but I would expect it to do so.

      JoeDid According to a thread on Reddit the modified 64-bit YNAB4 works fine on M1 with Rosetta 2. My main concern would be in 3-4 years when Apple discontinues Rosetta 2. But by then hopefully there will be a way to run Windows on M1 either through Parallels or others.

  • I imported all my YNAB4 history into nYNAB when it was first released. I know that a few weeks later there were many bugs reported and they stopped you from being able to do it for a while. Mine was fine though so i've got all 7-8 years in my budget.So yo could have it all in one place if you prefer.

  • As SgtBatten  has said, the YNAB4 data actually imports really well into nYnab. I only did it at the end of December 2020 after putting it off for a long time but it has worked very well. I now have from 2014 to 2020 fully accessible on nynab.
