Investors Toolbox

I recently tried to upgrade the latest MSN Money Investors
Toolbox to no avail. The installation crashes Money 2002
and then continuously asks me if I want to reinstall
again, which only crashes Money again. Does anyone know
if its compatible with Money 2002/Win98 or am I wasting my
time?

The Investment Toolbox crashes the Money browser in Money 2004, and judging
by your post, earlier versions of Money as well. Try going into >Tools
Options, and selecting "Use default browser" instead of "Use Money
browser". If IE isn't your default browser, you will likely have to make it
your default browser until this problem is fixed.

As this problem arose on 7-31-2004, and is also present in the 8-1-2004
version, I wouldn't hold my breath on a quick fix.

That did the trick. At least I'm in business again. I
guess they are planning to drop their Money browser,
considering they aren't interested in making their own
addons compatible. Thanks for the help.

You're welcome.

From what I've read, the Money 2005 Beta ended within the last few weeks.
It's possible that M2005's online functionality is tied to the new
Investment Toolbox, which would make returning to the Deluxe Portfolio
Manager a very short-term fix, as M2005 hits the streets in a few more
weeks. It would've been nice if MS offered M2004 and older users that
choice, though.

Unfortunately, breaking older versions of Money won't inspire ppl to
upgrade. Hopefully MS puts a real fix in place before M2005 hits the
streets, or else some ppl will be more likely to switch to Quicken than
upgrade to M2005.
