  • Ah, a UK version.  That is the problem.  Uninstall Money Plus.  Then go to the second "sticky" post (the link is in my reply above) and download and install  UK Money 2005.  That should open your current .mny file.

    Let us know how you make out.

  • Money Plus should be able to open a Money 2004 file as long as you were using a US version of Money 2004.  Did you copy your .mny file to the Windows 10 computer?  Did you double-click it to open it?  Exactly what is the error message?

    Note that the second "Sticky" thread in this forum:

    has links to downloads for different versions of Money depending on your location.  If you install Money Plus, you also should do the file replacement described in the first "sticky" thread in this forum:

    Post back if you need any help with this.

    Thanks  , the error message I am receiving is

    Money can't open this file because it was created using a different version of Money 

    I have tried to load using the restore form backup

    I was thinking that Dave may not have installed any version of Money.  He did not tell us what the actual error message was, so it was hard to tell what was going on.
