I had Ms Money 2005 working just fine under Vista and assumed it would run
fine under W7 professional.

It loaded OK - but wouldn't update from the www to the latest version.
This was cured by right clicking the Money exe and selecting 'Run as
administrator' - and that cured that problem.

Restored from saved money backup - so that was good too - but then came the
problem of not being able to auto-open any statements downloaded from tghe
bank (Abbey) - took days to work it out.

I had thought that there was a setting somewher in Vista (and XP) to select
to 'open after download' - but this wasn't to be found in W7 ...... it turned
out that to auto-open, UAC had to be turned off.

problem solved - works like a dream now.

Hope this helps someone

Mick

Indeed it does. As a Money user this was a concern. To be even more helpful,
'turning off UAC' (had to look that one up!) seems to be potentially a tad
hazardous; the following article goes into some detail:

One of the first things I did when I got Vista was turn off UAC. It made
my life hell. It was so dumb that it couldn't figure out that malware
couldn't physically press keys, and prevented me from doing routine
things like moving files around. Six months down the line, I have had no
problems with malware. I have AVG free and PC Tools Spyware Doctor
installed. They never find anything untoward anyway.

UAC is less of a disaster with WIndows 7.

Don't know if this is any help and have no idea if it will work under
Windows 7.
