Money on Windows 2000 and windows SP


S

swing

I have just upgraded my machine to Windows Sp from 2000. Re-installed
money 2005 and cannot open the file when I start Money 2005 under SP
The error messages says the file is either read only or I dont have
permission to open the file.

well the file is not read only and I was the administrator when I re-
loaded money onto SP

Appreciate any help I can get to resolve this problem

It has been stated on here before that you must open the sample file first
to start the downloads for the patches in 2005. Then close and reboot your
computer. You might need to right click on your money icon and click run as
administrator.

What is Windows SP?

If you mean XP then it seems a bit odd "upgrading" to something that's
7 years old???

For Jim
Windows XP Professional with SP3 is a perfectly good OS, better in most
respects than Vista, and it will run on less demanding hardware than 7.

For swing
Money 2005 was fatally flawed and your original installation on your old
machine would have been upgraded (by an MS download). Consequently your
***.mny datafile will (effectively) have been upgraded - and Money is NOT
backwards
compatible (old versions of the program can't open data files made by newer
versions). The error message is Money's way of telling you of version
conflict.
As soon as you upgrade your Money 2005 installation on your new SP (sic)
computer you will be able to open your ***.mny datafile.

There are many posts on this News Group that will tell you how to do that -
and it will be easy until 31st January 2011. After that date the MS servers
that would download the repair that your Money 2005 CD needs will be
switched off. Subsequent re-installation from the 2005 CD will require a
different repair technique. Again there are many posts on this NG which
explain how it can be done.

Hi Teabag,

I wasn't questioning XP. In fact we use that as standard on all the
200+ computers in the office (with SP3). It just seemed a strange
concept for somebody to go through the hassle of an upgrade from 2000
and merely go to XP.

A bit like replacing your 9 year old car with a 7 year old car and
taxing/insuring it. Not really much of an upgrade.
