  • Can you provide more context? You are talking about a WinLive ID used to authenticate access to a Microsoft Money data file? You are trying to do exactly what when you get exactly what message? Why would you create a new one? Why wouldn't you use your old one?

  • sorry.  i was very vague.  i am talking about my user name for this forum.  it won't let me use the one i have used for years when i had xp.  when i try that user name i'm told that name is already in use - which it is on my old xp computer.  i'd like to continue with the original user name if there is a way.  i do have a history with that name.

    thank you for your response

  • I guess I still don't understand why it would say name already in use for a WinLive login. Were you trying to create a new account?!?
