I had quite given up on upgrading from XP SP3 to Win 7 as the upgrade advisor
tells me that my irreplaceable Money program is not compatible. However many
threads on this and other forums (fora?) seem to indicate that there are
successful work arounds. Does anybodu know if these work foe the Home
edition of MS Money UK edition?

Whatever UK version of Money you have will run on both Windows 7 Home
Premium 32bit and on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Of course you will need your original Money installation CD.
Certainly you will need new 'drivers' to enable Win7(64) to operate with
your printer, scanner and other peripherals. You may need new 'drivers' for
Win7(32).
I believe Windows 7 will insist on doing a 'clean install' - rather than an
over-write of your existing OS. Consequently you will need to transfer all
your data from the hard drive on which Windows 7 is to be installed -
subsequently it can all be reinstated. Make sure you have backups of your
***.mny Money data file.

Which version of Money are you using?

If you can install it on Windows 7, be sure that your Money data file is
in Documents or some other unprotected area, NOT the Money default
Program Files area or data changes and updates will not be saved.

My advice would be to stick with Windows XP. Windows 7 does nothing
better in my opinion - just fancy visual effects and it will probably
slow down your PC unless you invest in the latest hardware.

Regard, Jerry

Thank you both teabag and dominic player. I think it is 2005 but the date
isn't on the disc. The copyright is 2004 and the last update was build
14.0.120.1105

You're probably right Jerry, but I wonder how long it will be before other
programs will demand Windows 7 and how long before MS doesn't want to know
about XP problems!

You have Money 2005.

The first time - only the first time - you launch Money 2005 under Vista
or Windows 7 you must right click the launch shortcut and select Run as
administrator. There is an online update which must be applied so you
can read your data file and it cannot be applied unless you do that.

And then once you've done that, follow the clear steps here:

http://money.mvps.org/faq/article/630.aspx

to create your own Money 205 CD with the .1105 patch built-in. You'll
then no longer be dependent on the (mandatory) patch as you'll already
have it if you need to reinstall.

I would not worry about XP becoming outdated and unsuppoted. It's a robust,
widely adopted OS and it will be many years before support is withdrawn and
even then it will still be running for years after that.

I read in another newsgroup (relating to other software) that the
poster made a folder and called it "Other Program Files" and used this
folder for software that shouldn't be installed in "Program Files".
Would creating this folder be suitable for installing Money, or does
it have to be in installed the root?
