I am running Money 2003 on windows XP Home (SP3) with no problems. i am a UK
user. I want to buy a new computer running Vista Home Premium. Will money
2003 work with Vista?
If not can I use 2003 data with latest version of Money or how can i upgrade
my data to work with it.
i have searched the MS website and found very little guidance so any help
gretefully appreciated.

Yes.

Be sure that your Money (*.mny) and backup (*.mbf) files are copied
to a spot that you will have full privileges to, such as Documents.
If they are in a place like ProgramFiles, Vista will create an
impermanent copy of the file for the user to use, unless the user
explicitly right-clicks at launch and choose RunAsAdministrator
that time.

Install Money on the new computer.

Right-click the Money icon and choose RunAsAdministrator once to
let possible updates happen. Then reboot the computer.

After you open your Money file, change the location to which Money
backs up to a location that exists on the new computer -- typically
your Documents folder or a sub-folder in Documents.

If you take the default for DEP (Data Execution Prevention )
settings, DEP only applies to OS files. So you would not have to get
involved in specifying certain files for the exclusion list.

Premium, using Money 2005 - thanks.
