Error message when transferring Money 2004 from XP to Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I did the two tips recommended (.mbf file in documents, right click run as administrator on first start up) but I still get the following error message when I try to restore the back up file in Win 7 that I created in XP: "The file name is invalid.  Please use a valid file name"

    I still have the program running in XP in paralell so can try a different transfer method if required

  • The .mbf file is a backup.

    Your data file is a .mny file and is the file you should transfer to the Documents area and open.
