A way to make the Windows 10 registry Internet Explorer error message workaround posted by im-mad in the recent threads RRS feed

  • Question

  •  (for alternative to steps 1 and 2: see download link farther down)

    1. With a text editor, such as Notepad, create a 4-line file that
    contains the content between, but not including, the begin and end lines:

    === begin W10_MSM1.reg 4 lines (for W10 64-bit)=====================
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer]
    "Version"="9.11.10240.0"
    ========== end W10_MSM1.reg==============

    =====begin W10_MM32.REG 4 lines (for W10 32-bit)===================
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer]
    "Version"="9.11.10240.0"
    =======end W10_MM32.REG =======================

    2. Name or rename the file to W10_MSM1.reg or W10_MM32.REG  as appropriate

    3. Run that file as Administrator.

    Here are download links to files:

     -------------- Windows 10 64-bit -----------------------------

    UPDATE: I have W10_MSM1.reg available for download at

     http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=45505718572033931897

    The file should be as described above. It is 137 bytes long.

                        -------Windows 10 32-bit -------

    I have made W10_MM32.REG available for download at

    http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=00735306949183996376

    The file should be as described above. It is 125 bytes long.

  • Cal,

    I am still running W7x64, so cannot confirm what I am about to write.  But it may be that this Registry Hack only applies to 64-bit versions of Windows 10.  For 32-bit versions, I suspect the change should refer to:   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

  • It should be as follows:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer]
    "Version"="9.11.10240.0"

    The original post has "Version"="9.11.10240.0" in there twice.  Taking out the second one and adding it to the registry did the trick for me.   Money now loads in Windows 10.

  • The correct key to change for 32-bit Windows 10 is indeed HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer.

    I have confirmed this in a 32-bit Windows 10 version.

    In 64-bit Windows 10 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer applies for 64-bit programs and is not relevant for 32-bit Money versions. Changing this  key in 64-bit Windows 10 is inadvisable.

  • Ron, Dominc, Christopher, thanks.

    I edited the first post thanks to your alerts, and I provided a link to download the files. The MD5 or SHA-1 can be used to verify that the file is the same.


    Incidentally, I run W7 32-bit, and I had an HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node -- even before checking that applying the first reg file I wrote about did not seem to affect anything. But thanks again for posting the right info.

  • Just downloaded and ran the Windows 10 64-bit solution above and Money works just fine. I don't really understand why but am very happy it does. Thanks a lot.
