  • There are two things that may work.

    ------------------------------First Way----------------------------------
    If you run the registry editor and navigate to

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]

    you may see a value of: @="@SYS:DoesNotExist"

    Rename this key (something like Autorun.inf.bak, restart and try to install Money again and it may work fine...

    Rename the key afterwords back to Autorun.inf if you want...
    ------------------------Begin second way----------------------------------------------------

    This one may be bit more complex, but is more likely to solve the problem:

    You can run the Sunset installation program with command line switches that allows you to extract the files, so you can get to mnyinst.exe and avoid any autorun.inf problem.

    Following is a method of doing that with either a batch file run from the folder, your documents folder in this example,
    containing USMoneyDlxSunset.exe, or a list of commands that you can paste into a command window that you have used cd to change to the
    directory/folder that contains the USMoneyDlxSunset.exe file.

    cd %USERPROFILE%\*documents

    USMoneyDlxSunset.exe /C /T:%TEMP%\Sunset

    cd %TEMP%\Sunset


    Here is a description of what the four commands are doing:

    1.  switch the command window to your documents folder.  That way the
        USMoneyDlxSunset.exe will be accessible to run.  CD stands for Change
        Directory.  Directory is another word for folder.

    2.  do the extraction command putting the files in a new folder within your
        temp folder.

    3.  switch to that new folder.  That new folder has the mnyinst.exe file as
        well as the other files needed for the install.

    4.  run mnyinst.exe  to do the Money Plus Sunset install.
        For this purpose you do not have to type the .exe part, There is at
        least one case where mnyinst.exe worked and setup.exe did not.  If it
        asks if you want to quit, say no.
