  • I am getting a new Dell 5000 series laptop to use for our farm records. I will be using QuickBooks for the accounting. Will the files from MS Money Plus transfer to the new computer to use for reference?

  • Install Money Plus to the new computer.  See what is currently the second post on this forum to get the installation file.


    On the new Money Sunset install, apply the patched version of mnyob99.dll as described in what is currently the first post on this forum.


    1.  On the old computer, close Money.  Copy your latest *.mny file to your flash drive.


    If you have a permissions problem on the new computer, you can format the flash drive to FAT32 format and return to this step.  FAT32 does not maintain ownership information.


    2. On the new computer, copy your *.mny file to a location that you have full control of and that is not mirrored by OneDrive or any
    other cloud software. This may be your Documents folder, or it may be a new folder that you create for the purpose.

    3.Open Money by right-clicking the file, and choosing Open.

    4.  Once inside, Tools->Settings->BackupSettings 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.
