Money 2004 and Windows 7, passwords no longer working


M

Matt

We had Money 2004 on Windows XP. All worked fine. We had two Money files, one
used to download from our primary bank, and one used to download for a
different bank.

I upgraded my PC Windows 7 RC. I reinstalled Money 2004 and tried to open
our 2 money files. In both cases it did not recognize our passwords. I am
100% certain we are using the correct passwords for each file

This password problem starting occuring after I installed Windows 7.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Even if the advice is go to Quicken now.

Thanks

Typically this means that the file is actually from a version of
Money newer than the Money 2004 you have installed.

Or that you haven't downloaded the money update after installing Money.
Open sample.mny and do an online Money update.

Charming. Have you had a personality bypass?

Microsoft Money (mny, as you lazily call it) installs fine on Win 7
thank you.

You should tell that to my computer. I'm running Win 7 (64 bit), installed
Money Plus Deluxe and am having no problems of any kind. And no, I didn't
need to install it into a virtual machine. It installed and activated
without any problem whatsoever. So I guess Kabalah is the dumb ass.

I agree your problem is probably your data file is for a newer version than
2004.
