What's the exact problem you see? Have you tried running it in compatibility
mode?

Two things I can suggest. Go to the Start->All Programs->Microsoft Money,
and RIGHT click on it. Click on properties and then 'compatibility'. Try
changing the compatibility mode to run the program in compatibility mode
(select Windows XP or 98).

The other idea is to do the above, and select the 'run this program as an
administrator' in the compatibility tab.

Just Installed Money 89 on Vista

Just installed Money 89 on Vista. I have no problem installing it and it is running fine. The only thing to watch out is that the original default location of the *.mmy files is under Program Files\Microsoft Money. This is own by Administrator and normal user will not have permission to access these *.mmy files.

I created a new directory called "MS Money" under "My Document" and placed a copy of my old "My Money.mny" in "My Document\MS Money". Make sure you keep a copy of the original. Then, I opened it from within Money 89 using File->Open and also configured the backup file "My Money Backup.mny" in the same directory which I have full permission. When I did it the first time, it had zapped my "My Money.mny" file. So, I closed Money 89, re-copied the "My Money.mny" to the same directory again. Now, I can open the Money 89 in the same way as in my old XP Laptop.

I have not try this, but I think you can also create a new "My Money.mny" under "My Document\MS Money". Close Money 89. Then, overwrite the "My Money.mny" you just create with your old "My Money.mny" from your Win XP or Win 89 machine.

Hope this will help anyone who want to move their old Money 89 data to the Vista platform.

Regards,
Peter
