Problem with Money Sunset installation on Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Sunset up and running in Windows 7 and the backup file sucessfully restored but now it won't let me do anything. I've tried entering a transaction into an account and both entering and editing a bill but I get a pop-up telling me that I entered it the month before.  Any ideas anyone??

    Why did you restore a backup? 

    Why not simply use the live MNY file (or at least a copy of it to be on the safe side)?

  • Are you in North America? If not, that could point to a problem using Money Plus.

    Did you have a problem with Money before installing Money Plus?

    Do you have an earlier backup that you could use?  Maybe when you had your problem, you saved a backup of the file with the problem.

    Try making a repaired version of your file. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/902466/en-us This could be applied to your *.mny file that pre-dated your new installation as banjomike suggests.If that does not fix it, what are the answers to the three quesions above.

  • Also where did you restore your file to?  Is it in your My Documents folder?

  • Doh! Probably because I didn't know any better. :-(

    I was thinking of uninstalling, reinstalling then trying the MNY file as you have stated but i've read up on my error message and it appears that the version I installed was a US one and I am in the UK. I can't find a UK version so does this mean i'm screwed and I should look for something else??
