Microsoft Money 2005 + quote download software RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had Microsoft Money 2004 for Australia for a
    long time and continue to use it for managing accounts, etc.  I found out
    about the Gainer software to update prices and tried to download it this morning but
    it said it needed Microsoft Money 2005 as a minimum. So I’ve found a Microsoft
    Money 2005 version and have upgraded to that.  Everything transferred
    across OK but I’m having trouble closing the program.  Whether I use the
    Close in the FILE of the program or the red cross in the top RHS, when you
    click on the Money icon in the task bar it says Money is still running. 
    The only way I seem to be able to shut it down is to log off the
    computer.  Even though it says it is running, I can’t see it anywhere.
    Wondering if you have any suggestions

  • I also use the Gaier software on Money 2005 in the UK and it works fine. Money creates temp files ending *.lrd that can cause problems although not as serious for me. This seems to be some kind of device to prevent there being two occasions of the prog open.

    If you launch Task Manager via ctrl-alt-del you may well see Money still running although you have closed it. Ending it in Task Manager fixes it.

    Of course one needs to keep lots of backups but you already do that don't you?

  • Put a Windows firewall block in place to keep Money from waiting for some Internet server that no longer exists.   https://microsoftmoneyoffline.wordpress.com/2016/06/06/eliminating-the-online-updatingdelays-and-errors-when-opening-money/ tells how.

    It will speed the program start and exit.
