Use Both M04 & M05?

Is there a way to install and use Money 2005 while still
maintaining Money 2004? Stated differently, can both
versions be operational on the same PC at the same time?
If so, this would allow a user to 'test drive' Money 2005
without the risk of removing Money 2004.

You should be able to. You can't run then both simultaneously, but close 04
and start 05 instead. Probably (untested) you'll need to install 04 first
then 05, and 05 will grab the handler for online imports and for .MNY files.
You;ll need to have separate files for each one and make sure you load up
the correct file with the correct version of Money

Yes. Money installed into "\Program Files\Microsoft Money 2005".
Money 2004 installed into a different place continues to work.

You would want to make a copy of your Money file to perhaps
Tom04.mny before doing the Money 2005 install. Money 2005 will
probably convert your current file. Open Tom04.mny one with Money
2004 using File->Open later.

Two versions of Money cannot be open at the same time by the same
user.
