    An error message is shown below for a deposit I tried to make to my money
    file. I am using Money 2002, and Windows 7 Ultimate.
    "Money could not write to your Money file. The operation cannot be
    performed or another application finished this task before you. Please try
    again."
    Process used to get the error message:
    I tried to deposit $50.00 to one of the accounts I use for My Money File -
    Microsoft Money, which is part of Money 2002.
    The deposit shows today's date correctly, and the amount shows $50, but when
    I hit enter, I get the above message.

    Try starting Money by right-clicking the Money launch icon. See if
    things work. If that solves the problem temporary, that points to a
    permissions problem.

    Note that your *.mny files should not be in your Program Files
    folder. Instead, move them to your Documents folder or some other
    folder the user will have full access to.

    Make sure the file you are trying to open does NOT have the 'read only'
    attribute set. If is did, then unset it.

    I right clicked on the "Wendy's Money File," and in properties it does NOT
    show the file as a "read only."

    thanks for the reply, Thomboy

    I right clicked on the "Wendy's Money File," and launched or opened the file,
    and once open, and in one of the accounts in the account list, I still could
    NOT deposit any money, but got the message when I hit enter, "This
    transaction cannot be entered."

    OK, Cal, how do I "find and then save" the *.mny files to my wife's laptop
    documents?

    Sorry to sound so dense, but it is like I am beginning from zero with Money,
    but my wife cannot solve the problem either.

    Also, when I click on the "X" in the upper right hand corner of the Money
    File, and it disappears, a Microsoft Money Express box with text inside is on
    the desktop that reads:
    ------------------------------------------
    The Money Express ws unable to open your Money file.

    This may be because you've run out of disk space. Try freeing some space on
    your disk.

    Or, it may be because you're trying to use a file from an older version of
    money. If so, open it in Money 2002, first, and then start Money Express.
    ----------------------------------------
    She doesn't use Money Express, so why the box after every exit?

    Thanks, Thomboy

    Make those extra copies of your file before proceeding. That is your
    undo. What if her hard drive crashed?

    Search for *.mny files. You can use the associated Windows search,
    or you could do the following line from a command (DOS) window:

    dir \*.mny /s

    Find the file(s) and copy onto USB flash drive. You can buy those
    cheaply, especially if you order.

    If you don't like Windows search or using the command window, Agent
    Ransack is a nice search program.

    It sounds as if you want to try making a repaired version of your
    file. Since you use Money 2002, follow the directions from
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/902466/en-us for Money 2002 users.

    See below.

    OK... I think this should be the cure for that:

    In Money 2002, Tools->Options->Bills, and uncheck Use Money Express.

    Cal, thanks for all your replies, and I can see I have my work cut out for
    me.

    I will first try to find the .mny files and then copy them onto a flash
    drive. I will also show my wife how to back up to a flash drive rather than
    a less reliable floppy disk.

    I will then follow the directions to repair the money file shown at:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/902466/en-us

    Hopefully, when done she will be back in working order, and I can relax.

    Again, many thanks for coming back so frequently to read my replies, and for
    having the patience to guide me to make the needed changes. When I make the
    changes, and repair the damage money file, I will report back with my results.

    Also, the *.mbf files are Money Backup Files. Search and save those
    too. Note the dates on the files. The *.mbf files may be restored
    into Money, but you cannot directly do the salv.exe repair on them.

    Note that Money 2002 will not back up onto a USB flash drive with
    more than 2 GB of free space. Fill it with stuff if you have a big
    drive. That bug does not exist in Money Plus.

    It has been a long time, but I got that dreaded flu bug!

    OK, I did find two more backup files for money using *.mny and saved them on
    a flash drive.

    I followed the directions for the Microsoft fix (using the MS Money
    Standard File Repair utility) and did download into a special folder, then
    tried to unzip the 5 files. When I clicked on the SALV.exe file (did not
    have an .exe after SALV), but it was an executable file, I got the following
    message:

    The program can't start because MSVCR71.dll is missing from your computer.
    Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

    I went back to the MS website and downloaded the Std File Repair utility
    unzipped set of files and the SALV.exe still would not open, but got the same
    message.

    I do have a floppy disk of her very last backup in August of 2009, so we
    have something good to use.

    I did save all the .mny files on a flash card.

    I made sure all the backups did not have "read only" as checked.

    Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, but that bug was awful.....

    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.

    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.

    +++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.

    >When I hit enter, I received the following message:

    >The system cannot find the path specified.


    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.
