Money - new installation requires a password RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 pcs, one which I had installed MS money 2000, probably 4 or 5 years ago, and one which I just installed the same MS money 2000 today.

    On the old PC, Money opens my money file perfectly ok without any password requirements.

    On the brand new installation, it won't open that exact same money file, it asks for a password, even though I never set a password on that file.

    I can still use my old PC and it does open the file. I want to move on to the new PC at some point. Is there a trick that I can use to make sure Money does not require a password to open a file when there isn't any needed?

  • On the old computer, do Help->About. Does it say Money 2000?

    Try this command in a command window on the old computer:

    dir \*.aw /s

    It will take a while to run. What file(s) was/were found, and in what folder?
