Installing Money 2005 In Windows 7 (64-bit) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    If I'm not mistaken, Money 2005 needs some sort of patch after the initial program was released to the public.

    I remember reinstalling Money 2005 on Windows XP Home a few years ago, and the owner could not open his file until this patch was installed.

    Am I correct, and has this patch been preserved for download here?

  • I did, but I only saw patches for UK and international versions.

  • The installation files in the second post are not patches. They are complete standalone versions of MS Money which Microsoft have provided for use by anyone. They allow installation without the need for activation as the activation servers were closed down ages ago.

    You probably need one of the "Sunset" versions for US users. I am a UK user so cannot advise which.

    Good luck.

    I have the Money Sunset installer stored on D drive, although I prefer to use my Money 2004 version instead.

    Are there any known issues between Money Sunset and Windows 7 (64-bit) that I need to know about?

  • I am running Money Plus Sunset US on Windows 7 x64 with no problems.  I did do the mnyob99.dll replacement as described in the first "sticky" in this forum:


    but I did so only as a precaution.  Money ran fine before applying that patch.

    One advantage of running Money 2005 or later is that there is a tool under development by Dan Gaier:


    that will restore the ability to download quotes.  Dan's current plan is that when it is officially released it will only work with Money 2005 and later (Versions 14.0 thru 17.0).  This (very long! - scroll down to near the end) thread:


    has discussion of the tool.
