- US and Canadian Money 2005 and Essentials users — as well as other US and usually Canadian users — can use Money Plus Deluxe Sunset if they have to reinstall at some point. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2118008 for information.
- Some US users of Money 98 ... Money 2003 may have to use an additional step, described in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919524/en-us , of first installing a verson of US Money 2004 or 2005 to perform a file conversion before installing Money Plus Sunset. Here is a link to a minimally functional version of US Money 2005 (filename webinst.exe) that can be used for conversions: http://download.microsoft.com/download/D/B/7/DB72D4E0-FBD1-4B76-BFA0-1FF20F6AEC8D/M12USWEB.exe

Note for all versions
It is suggested that all Money users keep a good copy of the installation file, even if the need is not immediate. It will be needed if you reinstall Money in the future. Those links can change, so do a search if you don't find the file you need. Since we don't know how long these files will be available, it is best to keep a copy of your appropriate installation file in a safe place.
Money data files are in a different format for each region. The correct regional version of Money must be used or the data file will not open.
It is possible to convert from one region to another only by exporting data as loose qif and importing to the new regional version of Money. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304254 and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/178830 .
Old Money versions will run only under 32-bit Windows
Old versions (Money 2000 and earlier) include 16-bit code so can run only under 32-bit Windows (XP, Vista, 7 and 8).
There are continuing changes to the way Windows works. There is no certainty that newer 32-bit Windows will continue to run Money well or at all.
The latest available versions of Money, downloadable below, run under Windows versions up to Windows 8.
There are continuing changes to the way Windows works. There is no certainty that newer 64-bit Windows will continue to run Money well or at all.
Money depends on Internet Explorer for some features. Development of Money stopped some years ago, so some features in Money do not work well or at all with the latest versions of Internet Explorer.
Money version downloads
The latest versions are free for anyone to use, but are not supported by Microsoft. The download links below are maintained by this forum's moderators and might become unusable at any time.
Remember to keep a secure copy of the downloaded installation file for when you need to re-install. Your data will be inaccessible if you cannot reinstall Money.
This forum is the only support available.

Friday, July 29, 2011 7:59 PMIt has arrived. See http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=26922.
Friday, July 29, 2011 8:28 PMModeratorThanks for the update.

Thank you for this I have installed QFE2 & it has solved my problem; praise "The Dude".
Can u explain to me how I save a good copy of the installation file?
Saturday, December 03, 2011 1:15 PM
I've just picked up on this thread and have downloaded the UK - QFE2 installation file. I've done this because I'm currently using 2004 (v12.0) on an XP machine and am concerned how it will work when I upgrade to W7(64bit) which I believe the QFE2 version does. Will the M2005 - QFE2 programme read my old .mny files written by M2004?
Saturday, December 03, 2011 2:14 PM
The System Requirements on the download page say that it is supported on Windows 7, Vista and XP. When Microsoft say Windows 7 and Vista are supported they mean both 32 and 64-bit versions: if it was bitness specific that would be stated.
Money versions for the same region will import and upgrade data files from older versions (apart from some recent US versions which require an intermediate stage to upgrade from very old versions). The old data file is copied and saved with an Mxx suffix and a new data file created.
Money 2005 UK - QFE2 imported my UK Money 2004 with no problems. UK Money 2004 worked for me on 64-bit Windows 7, except only that sound effects stopped working some time after installation.
Tuesday, July 10, 2012 5:26 AMDo you know if the Japanese version is available?

For many years I use microsoft money 2000 Professional Italian version which for me isirreplaceable.
kindly could you tell me if and when therewill be a procedure for moving to microsoft money sunset, as you didfor UK, French and intenational version?
In addition, there will be a version of money sunset in Italian?
I want to thank those who respond
Wednesday, October 03, 2012 2:07 PM
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Money. Money 2000 was the last localised version for Italy.
There will never be an official way to update Italian Money 2000 to a later version. You can export your data as loose qif and import it to Sunset if you want. Sunset may not display its menus in Italian.
Money has not been developed since 2009 and posters in this forum are finding some problems with Money Sunset in Windows 8.
Long term, the only way to be sure of running any version of Money is to run it in a virtual machine with a version of Windows known not to have problems with that version of Money.
If you do not have an available version of Windows, you can try running Money under Wine in a version of Linux, either natively or in a virtual machine. See http://www.winehq.org/ and http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=79.

It has taken about 2 years ( most spent trying get help from MS or their links ) but now , PRESTO. I tried a couple of less important files first , then the main one when they were OK.
It has not made backups yet but I shall find a way to do that once all 20 or so files have been transferred to a new safe place - and old ones can be sent into the ether !
Monday, November 19, 2012 9:10 PMThank you for posting all this information. I just rebuilt my systems and discovered, as other will if they haven't already, you can no longer activated your copy of Money. I had a really old version of Money that came with a computer or something and liked it so much decided to purchase the new version in late 2008. A little disheartening to have spent almost $80 only to see Microsoft giving the software away two years later. :(

Do you know if the uk fix will allow importing of classes? Currently all imports fine except for my family members analysis. Which makes it useless to me.
Friday, December 21, 2012 3:10 PMI would suggest that in the top post you add a link to the repaired mnyob99.dll file for US Money Sunset users as well as the recommendation that the file be stored on external media along with the installation file.

This post is just to bump this thread to the top. We have many reference so the "first" thread already. Plus the download links are of more general use.

Saturday, January 12, 2013 3:44 PMI'm having trouble downloading the Money 2005 UK - QFE2 file. Internet explorer is saying it "couldn't be downloaded" and leaves a 28Mb .partial file in the download folder.
Saturday, January 12, 2013 4:00 PM
problem solved - my download folder is redirected to a network share. I downloaded to my C drive and it worked.
I think it had trouble running the security scan over the network when it tries to rename the file from .partial to .exe
Wednesday, March 06, 2013 9:47 PMDoes anyone know what version is needed for australia?
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 9:19 AMDominic, The link just takes me to a list of countries and there is no apparent active button. Can you clarify/confirm. TY.
