You have Windows Explorer set to hide file extensions for known file
types. That's the default. Some of us have a list of things to
change when we get a new computer.

Search for MSVCR71.dll on your drive. I did not check but I would
have guessed that might have been in your "special folder". Did you
launch Salv.exe from a command (DOS) window after changing to your
"special folder" in that window? I would do it that way. The .exe
will show when you do a dir in that command window.

Note that salv.exe (Salv) only works on *.mny files, and not *.mbf
files.

That sounds like a duplicate of what you put into your special
folder.

How do I reset the Windows Explorer to show hidden file extensions?

The five unzipped files in the special folder are:
msuni10.dll app extension
myisam05.dll app extension
rsalv.dll app extension
salv application
utlsrf06.dll app extension

I DID A SEARCH AND NOTHING WAS FOUND.

I AM PLAIN LOST NOW! Did you launch Salv.exe from a command (DOS) window
after changing to your "special folder" in that window?

WHAT ARE YOU ASKING ME TO DO?

OK, BUT I HAVE TO BE ABLE TO LAUNCH IT FIRST.

THANKS FOR THE REPLY, AND FOR YOUR NEXT ADVICE.

I remembered there were some DLLs, but I did not remember what they
were. Let's hope that the DLLs there are all that will be needed.

I have msvcr71.dll in my C:\windows\System32 folder. Let's hope
that the method below does not give an error, at least not one
associated with that msvcr71.dll.


Let's call the special folder SF.

I could first copy the *.mny file that you want to make a repaired
version of to SF. You don't have to.
I have indented the three places that I am showing a command that
you would type.

Open a command window by entering
cmd
into the box that appears at the bottom of the window that opens
when you click Start, followed by the Enter key. Alternatively, you
may have CommandPrompt in your Start->Programs->Accessories. You
could launch from there instead.


In to the command window, type

cd SF
followed by the Enter key --
where SF represents the full pathname of where the SF folder is.
By doing that, your commands will default to referring to the SF
folder. cd stands for Change Directory. Directory is another name
for folder. Salv.exe should then also look for DLLs in that
directory/folder too.

Then type
salv.exe
followed by the Enter key. The .exe could be omitted, since that is
one of the extensions that Windows will check for.

That should bring up the program. You want to do a level 2 repair.
You will have to identify the file you want a repaired version of,
and you will have to provide a name for the repaired version.

If you used command files much, there is a way to make the font
bigger, and to make other modifications. But most people don't use
command windows. So putting up with the small font would be
temporary.

If using XP, see

In Vista, Start->ControlPanel->View and un-tick
HideFileExtensionsForKnownFileTypes

+++I placed the .mny file I wanted to repair in the SF, called, "Money
Repair Download," then opened the command prompt found in accessories, and
typed:

cd Money Repair Download

When I hit enter, I received the following message:

The system cannot find the path specified.

I then, even though i got the above message, typed: salv.exe, and got the
following message in the command prompt:

'salv.exe' is not recognized as an interenal or external command, operable
program or batch file.

Now what?

Oooh... Something shorter would have been handier when you have to
type the path. Plus, within a command window, filenames or paths
with a space in them need to be enclosed within double quotes.

So I would rename that.. to SF lets say...
but you also need to specify where that folder is.

If that folder was at the outer level, you could do a command like
this if you don't rename:

cd "\Money Repair Download"

There is a good chance that your folder is not at the root level of
the drive. In that case, you will need a command more like this.

cd %HOMEPATH%"\My documents\Money Repair Download"
in XP or

cd %HOMEPATH%"\Documents\Money Repair Download"
in Vista or Windows 7

The %HOMEPATH% is a special symbol that represents the starting
point for the user data space for the current user.

Note that the
dir
command can be useful to see what is in the folder/directory that
you are currently in.

So to reiterate, you need to put the part of the pathname that
includes spaces into double quotes, and you need the rest of the
path.

OH, BTW, I couldn't quite follow your path to set explorer to show file
extensions? I am using Win 7, which is very close to VISTA. The path you
give for VISTA may be different for Win 7:

In Vista,
Start->ControlPanel->View and un-tick HideFileExtensionsForKnownFileTypes

I can't find the "HideFileExtensionForKnownFileTypes" option to un-tick, and
make hidden file types visible.

NEW THOUGHT!!

What would happen if I uninstalled Money 2002 Deluxe, and then reinstalled
it? Once reinstalled, I could then use the backup on my wifes floppy disk to
make a NEW "My Money File" and include the most recent backup from August of
2009 from the floppy disk?

Yes, I would lose all the .mny backups, but I still have them all saved on a
flash drive, just in case they are needed, but none of them seem to have the
latest August 2009 data I am trying to put back into "My Money," or "Wendy's
Money file."

This may be a very stupid thing to do, but since I don't have your
expertise, it is one of those out in left field thoughts.

Cal, I just noticed this information, so I better use a smaller USB Flash
Drive to save the .mny and .mbf files.

OUCH! WE HAVE DISCUSSED SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO MAKE THE MONEY FILE WORK,
WITH BITS AND PIECES OF YOUR ANSWERS HERE AND THERE, THAT I AM OVERLOOKING OR
LOSING SOME OF IT, WHICH MAY BE CRITICAL TO MAKING THE SOLUTION WORK. MAYBE
I HAVE TO START A SPECIAL FILE ON THE LAPTOP THAT INCLUDES THE VARIOUS PARTS
OF THE SOLUTION, SO I DON'T LOSE THEM, OR FORGET SOMETHING THAT CAUSES A
BACKUP FILE TO BE LOST FOREVER.

In your reply here, one sentence says, "The program can't start because
MSVCR71.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to
fix this problem."

ARE YOU TELLING ME TO REINSTALL MONEY 2002 DELUXE?

Reinstalling Money 2002 Deluxe is probably a good idea. Reinstall
does not delete your *.mny or *.mbf files.

See other response.

Windows7:
ControlPanel->AppearanceAndPersonalization->FolderOptions->View,
un-tick HideFileExtensionsForKnownFileTypes

Perhaps also select ShowHiddenFiles,Folders,OrDrives.

I would copy the contents of your floppy backup disks to your hard
drive. Floppies fail more frequently than other media. I am also
worried that you say "floppy" rather than "floppies". I don't think
that most people could back up to a single floppy.

Reinstall is fine. I would still try to use the salv.exe from your
special folder.

Copy the sample.mny from your Money install folder to your documents
folder. Try opening that copy by right-clicking the copy. If that
opens fine, the problem is probably with your *.mny file rather than
your installation.

One more thing. Make sure your *.mny file that you are trying to
open is not within your \ProgramFiles folder. Your symptoms don't
seem to match the problem that would cause, but I thought I would
mention it.

There are shortcuts to help with command windows. For example, you
should be able to paste a string as a command by right-clicking.

What folder is your Money Repair Download folder in? I could tell
you the exact command to enter to change to that directory/folder.

Also, maybe you have a friend who used MS DOS and knows how to use
command windows.
