I'm running M+Dlx on Win7Ultimatex64. Can't say as I've seen any (new)
issues. Maybe it's part of a greater FUD campaign to get people off Money?

I'm running Money Plus Deluxe on windows 7 64 bit and was running Money Plus
premium until online expired. I've been running the RTM (retail version of
windows 7 since August with Money Plus. I have not experienced any problems
at all.

FUD="fear, uncertainty, and doubt" for anyone who didn't know, like me. But
a campaign?

I had thought of putting off a conversion attempt from M07 to Q10 until
after going from Vista 32 and XP 32 to Win 7 64 (not an upgrade), but then
thought about if I might loose my current expired M07's updating (yes, still
updating prices and downloading from cooperating FIs (the free ones)--no Live
ID) upon reinstall. So that is a question. Has anyone who is running an
expired, but still updating M07, reinstalled on Win 7 and found if the
reinstalled M07 works as before the reinstall?

Greetings, fellow Money warriors.
This is my first post here, but I've been following the discussions in
this newsgroup ever since MS dropped its nuclear bomb in the Spring.

I haven't checked out the Win7 Compatibility Center concerning Money+,
so can't comment on that.

However, I've been running M+ successfully on both Win7-32 RC and now
Win7-32 RTM with no problems at all.

In July I switched from WinXP to a clean install of Win7 RC. With my
heart in my mouth -- and fully prepared to revert to WinXP if
necessary,
I installed Money+ -- and was relieved when M+ both installed with no
problem and activated online transparently.

Last weekend, with the new Win7 RTM installation CD having arrived in
the mail, I performed another clean install of Win7. Two points may be
worth noting here:

1. The Easy File Transfer -- a part of the Win7 installation but also
downloadable from MS -- will back up all data files and Windows
settings, as well as other files at user's choice. If Money is
installed
in the old OS, Easy File Transfer will save Money's settings and
restore
them in the new OS. And while re-activation of M+ _IS_ required, for
me,
at least, that was entirely transparent.

2. Installation over top of the existing Windows installation (i.e.
don't reformat the HD) transfers all OS related files to a structured
folder and subfolders named "Windows-old." The advantage to this
approach is that one can easily copy or move files, file sets and whole
folders to the corresponding place in the new OS. For example, all
programs that don't require installation (and a surprising number of
smaller, single purpose programs don't require installation!) can
easily
be run straitaway in the new OS. For example, my usenet news reader,
XNews, with all it's settings in place runs without installation when
copied from the old OS to the new OS.

To the short answer is: Yes Money will and does run as before under
Win7.

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 2 on Sunday, 10/25. I then installed Money
2007 Deluxe, which is already fully updated. It installed without a
problem. And so far, I don't seem to have any problems while running it.

Was your installation of Win 7 an upgrade or was it a full (clean)
installation?

When you re-installed Money, did you intall from your original purchased CD
or some other copy? Because the original CD would not have the updates,
would it? What did you mean by "is already fully updated?"
 
M

Mike

It was a clean install of Windows 7.

I installed Money from an ISO I have of the CD version.

By "is already fully updated," I meant-- when I originally purchased Money
2007 Deluxe, I bought the downloadable version. When the whole announcement
of Money being discontinued came out, I threw a fit with Microsoft about, in
the future, not being able to reinstall (due to no more activations) or even
possibly updating (due to possibly Money's updates being taken off of the
servers). As a result, they sent me an ISO of Money 2007 Deluxe, which does
NOT require activation, as well as already being fully updated.

I did a clean install of Win 7 & a new install of Money from the file bought
on line about 6 months ago. Had no problems whatsoever. However, I did run
the windows wizard on XP that saves your account settings & it really saved
time & trouble for any Microsoft programs that were being reinstalled.
First thing you do after you've installed Win 7 is run the file that you
saved with all of those settings. Then install programs as needed.

Hm, at this point I doubt that MS Support will be sending out any ISO copies
of activated updated Money 2007 Deluxe, but I suppose that I could ask. They
will probably tell me to buy the upcoming unactivated non-updating version
and "upgrade" to that. Anyone else get an activated updated copy of Money
2007 from MS to replace their store-bought CD or downloaded version? If not,
I still don't know what will happen if I try to reinstall my store-bought CD
on a clean (non-upgrade, as I am moving 32-bit to 64-bit) Win 7 install, but
seeing the posts with various reinstall problems folks are having, I am not
hopeful.

I tried calling MS Support. To find a number I went through the online
process, and as I was unable to provide a PID, which I think is only
available for Money 2008 (+?), I ended up with (800) 936-5700 which took me
to what sounded like India. There they told me that they couldn't put me
through to Money Support without a PID. I tried twice.

I did, just this morning, onto a new computer that came with Win 7
already installed. Money prompted me to download and install the M07
update at the end of the install (from retail CD), as it should. And it
restored my Money data file backup with no problems. M07 looks to be
working the same as it did on my old Win XP computer. I did an online
update from my credit card account just to make sure that still works.
So, so far so good. Hope that helps.

Got it installed and using XP Compatability in Win 7 Pro, everything works fine. The Win 7.0 warning screens are annoying but the program functions.

copied from the old OS to the new OS.

To the short answer is: Yes Money will and does run as before under
Win7.

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 2 on Sunday, 10/25.
I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 2 on Sunday, 10/25. I then installed
Money
2007 Deluxe, which is already fully updated. It installed without a
problem. And so far, I do not seem to have any problems while running
it.

Was your installation of Win 7 an upgrade or was it a full
(clean)installation?

When you re-installed Money, did you intall from your original purchased
CD
or some other copy? Because the original CD would not have the updates,
would it? What did you mean by "is already fully updated?"

I installed Money from an ISO I have of the CD version.

By "is already fully updated," I meant-- when I originally purchased
Money
2007 Deluxe, I bought the downloadable version. When the whole
announcement
of Money being discontinued came out, I threw a fit with Microsoft about,
in
the future, not being able to reinstall (due to no more activations) or
even
possibly updating (due to possibly Money's updates being taken off of the
servers). As a result, they sent me an ISO of Money 2007 Deluxe, which
does
NOT require activation, as well as already being fully updated.

I did a clean install of Win 7 & a new install of Money from the file
bought
on line about 6 months ago. Had no problems whatsoever. However, I did
run
the windows wizard on XP that saves your account settings & it really
saved
time & trouble for any Microsoft programs that were being reinstalled.
First thing you do after you have installed Win 7 is run the file that
you
saved with all of those settings. Then install programs as needed.

They
will probably tell me to buy the upcoming unactivated non-updating
version
and "upgrade" to that. Anyone else get an activated updated copy of
Money
2007 from MS to replace their store-bought CD or downloaded version? If
not,
I still do not know what will happen if I try to reinstall my
store-bought CD
on a clean (non-upgrade, as I am moving 32-bit to 64-bit) Win 7 install,
but
seeing the posts with various reinstall problems folks are having, I am
not
hopeful.

I tried calling MS Support. To find a number I went through the online
process, and as I was unable to provide a PID, which I think is only
available for Money 2008 (+?), I ended up with (800) 936-5700 which took
me
to what sounded like India. There they told me that they could not put
me
through to Money Support without a PID. I tried twice.

I did, just this morning, onto a new computer that came with Win 7
already installed. Money prompted me to download and install the M07
update at the end of the install (from retail CD), as it should. And it
restored my Money data file backup with no problems. M07 looks to be
working the same as it did on my old Win XP computer. I did an online
update from my credit card account just to make sure that still works.
So, so far so good. Hope that helps.
