I don't know what's going on but Microsoft seem to have issued
"Sunset" editions of the product:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/results.aspx?freetext=money+sunset&displaylang=en&stype=s_basic
I'm not sure how to find out if I might need "Money Plus Sunset
Deluxe" or "Money Plus Sunset Home and Business". Then I'm not at all
sure whether these Sunset jobs apply to UK anyway.

Sunset is the final version of MS Money, and doesn't reqeuire online
activation. It's designed for USA users (although many UK-based people
like myself are running the USA versions anyway). The last version for
the UK is 2005, which doesn't require activation BUT it does require
an online patch - so if you use Money 2005 and you plan on
reinstalling it any time in the future then burn yourself a CD -
instructions are on the Mnoney MVPs websites.

Where's the Money MVP website for UK?

I've got UK Money which identifies itself as version 12.0. How does
that relate to years?

It came on a Microsoft Works Suite DVD which has a lot of other stuff
that I don't use now. Upon installation I can't get it to just install
Money as it seems to want me to swallow the lot. So installation has
been a pain since I stopped using the other stuff.

What do I need to keep afloat and carry on running (and re-installing)
it and not get myself locked out?

This page has the details for creating a new Money 2005 CD:

It sounds like you have Money 2004:

For reference, Microsoft has also stopped supporting the newsgroups
(NNTP) concept. Instead, there's a forum:

Unfortunately the above link generates error "Service Unavailable".
As you say it seems I have UK Money 2004. Where can I get instructions
on what I need to do for this version?
As far as I know, there's no updates required for 2004, so you'll be
okay to continue using that. 2005 had a critical update, but 2004
didn't.

One of the MVPs might correct me, but I think that's the case.

If you can, your best bet would be to install a clean copy of your
version onto a different computer - preferably Win7. If it installs,
and successfully opens your Money file, then you should be fine.
