What PC-dependent settings can make an identical copy of Money (2004
dlx) file not accept the password (MS Passport) on one machine, and
accept it on another?

- I moved to a new laptop
- copied the Money file
- new laptop has WinXP profile associated with Passport
- IE cookies are turned on
- manually signed in to passport.com

Money does not accept my passport log in. Yet if I go back to the old
laptop, the same login info is accepted. I'm clueless ... thanks for
any help.

That problem often means that you haven't got the same version of Money on
the two machines. In this case it suggests that the new laptop has the older
version.

Try copying sample.mny across - which presumably hasn't had a password
applied. If you hit the same problem then it is definitely a version
mis-match.

Thanks, Bob,

I used the same Money install CD as on the pevious laptop, it's Money
2004dlx. Of course on the old laptop it had all the Money updates....

As a test I created a new Money file without password, then clicked to
update Money from the Internet - so I assume by now the program has to
be identical.

Then I tried the Passport login and it would not recognize it again...
I am clueless...

Thanks for any help.

Sorry to keep on at this and I don't have a copy of M2004 to hand, but if I
do Help > About with M2005 the version number is something like
14.0.120.1105. I would have expected M2004 to be similar. With M2005 it is
the 1105 part of the version number that is absolutely critical. Maybe 2004
is the same (but I could be way off beam!)

In Money 2004 it says Version 12.0 Update 1 rather than having the
4-part number. That would be up to date.

Indeed, so the program is uptodate, there must be something about the
PC's setting that prevents Money from accpting the password. BTW, it
also does not allow me to open the file "local only" without the
passport... I am stuck. The same file still works on the old PC.

Thanks, but I started there, before posting here - no help. In the
meantime I've downloaded the 2007 trial and it could open my file with
the password, so I guess I will now have to buy 2007 whether I want it
or not. Talk about a forced upgrade ... oh, well.

Thanks,
Zoli
