    Need to re-install MS Money 2001 following rebuild of Desktop. Unfortunately
    have lost the original install CDROM. Have the .mny files saved to backup.

    Tried the download trial from
    http://www.5star-shareware.com/Windows/Hobby/Home-Finance/ms-money2001-deluxe.html
    but getting incompatible version message when attempting to load the .mny
    files. Presume the trial is US and my copy of Money was the UK edition.

    I've seen a couple of vendors who are selling copies of MS Money 2001 e.g
    http://www.specialtysoftware.co.uk/microsoft-money-2001-standard-product_4136.html but how do I ensure the UK edition is being purchased?

    All the best

    Have a look at the FAQs here.
    http://money.mvps.org/

    I am not sure that your specific question is answered but alternatively the
    spelling of "cheques" and "checks" in Help can give a clue!

    Thanks Bob/Mark,

    Just to let you know I managed to purchase the UK edition of the software.
    A tell tale sign is on the back of the CD cover where it lists the Money site
    to visit. The URL contains a subfolder .../uk/...

    All the best

  5. Another way, especially if you can see the box is to check the SKU on it. I
    should have all of them listed on my website somewhere against the version
    of Money and the country.
