Money Sunset no longer produces sound RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using Money Sunset for many years without any problems. I am now using it on Windows 10 and it has been working fine. However, in the last couple of weeks while Money Sunset itself works OK,  it has stopped producing sound (sound when it is initiated and notification sound for certain operations). My Windows 10 PC is working as normal with all other sounds (apart from Money Sunset) working fine.
    How do I get Money Sunset to restore its normal sounds?

  • It has been reported that Money sounds will be turned off if you change certain desktop settings such as enabling or disabling the Aero themes.  The first thing to try is to uninstall Money and then reinstall it.  That should reset the sounds.  An uninstall and reinstall  won't affect your data file, but it's always good practice to have multiple backups of your Money files when experimenting.

    After the reinstall you should also be sure to do the mnyob99.dll replacement that is described in the first "sticky" thread in this forum:

  • Money is an old program, written before Windows 10 was conceived.

    If sounds disappear, in Money go to "Tools - Settings - Program Settings -  Change sounds - Sounds" and set the sounds you want under the Microsoft Money heading.

  • You can make a registry file that will restore the original sounds. Copy the text between the "CUT" lines and paste it into Notepad. Save the file as MoneySounds.reg. Make sure it does not have a .txt extension and acts like a text file. Double-click the file to have it modify your registry. You will need to have Administrator rights to run this. This assumes that Money was installed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Money Plus". If that is not the correct location, you'll have to do a search and replace in the notepad file so it points to the correct location.

  • Thanks Bob, works a treat just one query the only sound that doesn't play even when the item is selected in the settings menu is when Money launches, I have tried a number of various sound alternatives and none work, any ideas please. Regards Gordon

  • The entry for "intro" is  in the set of registry values. Can you find "launch.wav" in the mnycorefiles\sounds folder? What happens if you double-click that file? Does the correct sound play?

  • Hi Bob, "launch.wav" is in the same directory that all the other ".wav" files are in and when in the Money settings section for sound when I click on it it plays as it's supposed to and when not in Money i.e. just the directory and double clicking it still works fine.

    Which is quite strange as all the other sounds work perfectly well, so I have just replaced the sound choice  for Launch Money = "launch.wav" with "kerching.wav" both work independently but none work when initiating (loading) Money.  So I am at a bit of a loss as to where to go next.

    This is not the first time I have suffered a loss of sound functionality, this most recent time (I think but not sure) is when I accepted from Microsoft a set Background pictures to download and if I remember correctly some years ago when I took a similar opportunity a similar thing happened which required me to reconstruct the directory where I could locate the individual sound files.  Hope that helps _ Gordon
