Using Money 98 in a virtual PC


G

Gualtier Malde

I have used Money 98 for a good many years and am attached to it. It has run in
98, 2000, and XP without a hitch.

I now have a 64 bit Windows 7 machine with a virtual PC installed which operates
on XP as its operating system. I have my Money 98 installed there, but in that
environment it runs with glacial slowness and I don't know why. All of the
other apps I have in that VPC run just fine.

I did notice that instead of using My Money.mny it uses My Money XP.mny. I
can't imagine why that would cause slowing.

Can anyone tell me where to look for answers?
Thanks

Money is very disk intensive, particularly with a big file. I expect
that would be the difference between the other things you are
comparing against.
