How do I know that I'm purchasing a UK Edition?

Need to re-install MS Money 2001 following rebuild of Desktop. Unfortunately
have lost the original install CDROM. Have the .mny files saved to backup.

Tried the download trial from
http://www.5star-shareware.com/Windo...01-deluxe.html
but getting incompatible version message when attempting to load the .mny
files. Presume the trial is US and my copy of Money was the UK edition.

I've seen a couple of vendors who are selling copies of MS Money 2001 e.g
http://www.specialtysoftware.co.uk/m...duct_4136.html but how do I ensure the UK edition is being purchased?

All the best
Steve

What did the vendors in question reply when you emailed them and asked
them...?

Have a look at the FAQs here.
http://money.mvps.org/

I am not sure that your specific question is answered but alternatively the
spelling of "cheques" and "checks" in Help can give a clue!

Thanks Bob/Mark,

Just to let you know I managed to purchase the UK edition of the software.
A tell tale sign is on the back of the CD cover where it lists the Money site
to visit. The URL contains a subfolder .../uk/...

All the best
Steve

Another way, especially if you can see the box is to check the SKU on it. I
should have all of them listed on my website somewhere against the version
of Money and the country.
