  • Very odd indeed.  After you installed Money Plus Deluxe on your Windows 10 machine did you replace the mnyob99.dll file as described in the first "sticky" thread in this forum:


    If not, I would try that and then re-try the qif import.

  • After the patch that Bill pointed to, try this instead of the QIF method:

    1.On the old computer, close Money.
    2.Open Windows Explorer (WindowsKey+E is one way to do that)

    Click Tools->FolderOptions->View and un-tick (remove check mark on)
    the HideExtensionForKnownFileTypes.  Click OK.  That way you will
    be able to see the actual .mny part of the filename.

    3.Browse to your *.mny file on the old drive. Right-click and choose Copy.
    4. Paste into a USB flash drive.
    5. Move the USB flash drive to the new computer. Copy your *.mny file to your Documents folder on the new drive.., Right-click and choose Paste.
    6.Right-click the copied file Documents folder, and choose Open. That should launch Money.
    7.Once inside, Tools->Options->Backup to set the backups to a place that exists on the new computer. Use Browse to help find a place that exists. Consider your backup strategy. You may want to make the upon-exit  backup to be a place in your Documents folder, and put your scheduled backup on a Flash drive. That way, a hard drive crash does not make you lose all of your backups.
