I'm a bit of a luddite, still running ( happily ) MS Money 1999 on an XP
machine. Works fine as far as I am concerned.
I have no requirement to update MS Money but would hope it might work if &
when I update to a new PC running Windows 7. I understand a further
complication with Windows 7 is which version to buy, and also whtehr to run
it in 32 or 64 bit.
Any advice or experience with a similar dilemma much appreciated.

Peter

Money does not try to access the Windows system directly so it does not
matter, for running Money, whether you use 32 or 64-bit Windows 7.

I'm afraid I can't help you on that one as I got rid of my copy of Money 99
many years ago.

I can reassure you that Money 2005 works perfectly on Windows 7 (after doing
the initial online patch download)...

64-bit OS have one major advantage over 32-bit OS - they can address more
memory. With a 32-bit OS, you are unlikely to be able to "see" much over
3.5GB RAM, no matter how much physical RAM your machine might have. So, if
your machine has more than 4GB RAM, a 64-bit OS is the better choice.

Also, you may need to run 64-bit software for whatever reason. Perhaps
you're really into Microsoft Exchange Server and want to run the very latest
version, which exists only as 64-bit... If so, then 64-bit is your only
option.

It used to be the case that 64-bit versions of Windows has extremely poor
driver support for certain hardware. This is less true with 64-bit Windows 7
but, if you absolutely need to support old hardware for which no 64-bit
driver exists, 32-bit will be your only option...

Money 99 is a 32 bit application and it should run well under a 64 bit OS.
Older 16 bit applications will NOT run on a 64 bit OS .
The critical issue with a 64 bit OS is driver availability for old hardware.

I got 8 years life out of a 400 MHz Pentium 2 / Windows 98SE combination and
expect to get the same out of a 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 / Windows XP Pro system.
When it fails, in 6 years or so, I shall buy wall to wall new (PC, display,
scanner, printer) probably with Windows 7 Professional certainly 64 bit.
Alternate versions of Windows (98SE / XP / 7) seem perfectly good; whilst
Windows Millennium, Windows 2000 and Vista all seemed flawed to me.

My MS Money 2000 and MS Office 2000 Professional all run well on my present
system and I would expect them to run well under 64 bit Windows 7.

You probably know MS intend to shut down the servers that deliver share
prices to Money on 31 Jan 2011. All versions of Money will be equally
affected. Thereafter, it will be a nuisance to glean prices and update
manually but that is what I shall do until a better personal finance
application becomes available.
