Upgrading from Money 99 to 2006


J

I have purchased Money 2006 with the thought that I could easily load my
backup on the 1999 version easily however it won't allow me . Keep getting a
message stating that the file is a "read only" . I have ensured that my 99
backup is not "read only" and that it should be a valid file. Any
suggestions on how to convert the 99 into my 2006 version?

Money 2006 cannot convert a Money 98 or 99 file if the computer is
running Money on a Windows 9x OS. It has to due with a potential
security hole in the msjet35.dll (So Money 2006 no longer ships with
that DLL)

Options :
1. Upgrade Windows to XP
2. Step upgrade to Money 2000 - 2005 and then Money 2006
3. Do the conversion on a different (XP) machine, and move the
converted file
