  • How do I allow multiple users to open same Money 2004 file in Windows 10?

    I have a new windows 10 pc and I set up Money 2004 in the admin account. But the accounts won't open or show up in my Standard account. For security reasons, I don't want to be using Money in the admin account. How do I get Money to open the mymoney.mny file in the Standard account?

  • If I were more skilled at permissions, I would have you change the permissions.

    What I do know to do is to format a USB flash drive to FAT32 format. Copy the file to the flash drive. The trick is that FAT32 does not know about permissions.

    Then  have the non-admin person copy it from the USB drive to an accessible place.

    I would also rename the file to something else, such as BarryVictoria.mny, but that is not necessary.

  • Put the data file in the Public user account.

    Make sure it is password protected, otherwise anyone with access to the PC could open it.
