Installing Money 2002 on new computer


D

David Clark

I will shortly have to install Money 2002, along with data files containing
years of info, on a new computer running Vista. I've seen the various
posts about likely problems although these mainly refer to Money 2005; is
there a summary somewhere that explains the dos and donts of installing
Money 2002 on a Vista computer?

All advice gratefully received...

Be sure that your Money and backup files are moved to a spot that
you will have full privileges to, such as Documents.
If they are in a place like ProgramFiles, Vista will create an
impermanent copy of the file for the user to use, unless the user
explicitly right-clicks at launch and choose RunAsAdministrator
that time.

Right-click the Money icon and choose RunAsAdministrator to let
possible updates happen. Then reboot the computer.

With thanks to everyone who gave advice, I have managed to install Money
2002 on my new computer.

Only one problem remains - when on the web, I get repeated security warnings
from Internet Explorer Security saying - "A website wants to open web
content using this program on your computer" and the offending program is
......Microsoft Money\System\urlmap.exe. Clearly it is part of Money but I
can't find any options or whatever to get rid of it. The warnings occur
regardless of whether Money is running or not.

Any thoughts on how I might stop it in its tracks?

Thanks
David

It may be that I have answered my own question. So far as I can see,
urlmap.exe is a Money add-in for Internet Explorer. I think that I have
disabled it in Internet Explorer so I'm hoping it won't come back.
