AppID & AppVER for OFX scripts

[UPDATED 9/25/2014]

When PocketSense and TFB’s scripts communicate with the OFX servers at your financial institutions, by default they inform the server that you are using Quicken 2011* via the AppID and AppVER variables.   Within PocketSense, the default values are specified in control2.py  and even though you are downloading the data into Money, you are actually emulating a request from  Quicken (which should have a few more years of life expectancy than Money).   Since Money is discontinued, it is probably best to not use the Money AppID any longer.

From Quicken’s site, I found the following:

On April 30, of each year, Quicken discontinues its support for any of its versions more than 2 years old. As of April 30, 2014, Quicken will no longer support Quicken 2011

This implies that if you have changed the default or are overriding AppVer with an older version (like 1700 or 1800), you may have to upgrade the AppVer  in PocketSense at that time since Quicken forces financial institutions to promote Quicken upgrades by not allowing “obsolete” versions to communicate with their servers.   I’ve observed that Moneydance is currently using version 2100.
