Money 2005 on Win 7 retail version

    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

    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.
