You don't get an incompatible version error message. Do you get any
error message, or does it just sit there overnight without
completing?

I get this message:
Money cannot locate '%1' or cannot open it, possibly
because it is a read-only file or you do not have
permission to change it or your disk drive is write
protected. If you have chosen the correct file and it
cannot be accessed, you will need to click OK and open
your most recent backup file. If the file is being used
by another application, close it in the other application
and click OK to try again.

You have recently installed Money 2004. I would close Money. I would
then browse to the existing *.mny file. and double click it in
Windows Explorer.

That should open Money and start the conversion. Same error then?

when I open the file from explorer, money04 still try's
to convert the original file to money04 file...this file
conversion fails...

I've uninstalled both programs, placed my 99 file in the
target directory, reloaded Money04, and then I did as you
requested...the conversion fails.

I know that the file is good.

You get a "conversion fails" error message"?

I guess I would try the steps in
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;310560 for
selective startup or clean boot if using XP, or I would try
converting from safe mode if using Windows 98.
