Having trouble creating registry update file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just did (another) reset back to the factory image on my desktop PC and am trying to reinstall Money. I am having a problem that I've never had after previous recoveries. The install went fine and I am trying to create the W10_MSM1.reg registry update file and run it. When I use Notepad to create the file, I don't get an option to save it as a .reg file. If I save it as a .txt file, rename it, and right click on it, I don't get the Run As Administrator option. I found an old copy of the file from a previous recovery and right clicked on that but don't get the Run As Administrator option that way either. Any ideas on what is happening and how to overcome the problem? My account is type Administrator.

  • If Money installs and runs properly, what is the purpose of your W10_MSM1.reg registry update file?  The only required additional action after an install that I am aware of is for Money Sunset.  That Money version requires a replacement of the mnyob99.dll with a patched version.

    What version of Money are you running?

    If you are already logged in as an administrator, maybe that is why running a .reg file doesn't give the Run as Administrator prompt.  I haven't tested that.

  • The registry change was only needed for the original release of Windows 10 in July 2015 and even then only until the first Cumulative Update for Windows 10 in August 2015.
