Converting from Money 2000DeLuxe Canadian Version to Sunset Edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    First of all, I have been using Money 2000 from the days of Windows 99 and now I am still using it on Windows 10 on a 64 bit machine. I never had a problem I never felt the need to upgrade.

    Now I am considering the opportunity of upgrading to sunset or at least find a way that I can open my files with Sunset in case anything happens to my software (money 2000 deluxe).

    Does this make sense? I think it does, but I am always open to suggestions.

    Using another machine 32 bit

    I have tried importing my *.mny into Sunset, did not work, I tried importing it into Money 2005, as I heard a conversion might be needed but that did not work either.

    From that moment on I started spiralling down trying repairing the file using 2005 but a couple of .lib were missing, so that did not work.

    I tried the same maneuver using Sunset, but ut the message remained that it cannot be opened as it was created with another version.

    Any idea on what I am doing wrong?

    Suggestions?

    Thank you in advance

  • I suggest that you try converting your Money 2000 file with Money 2004.  Here is a link to a version of Money 2004:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20070216014147/http://download.microsoft.com/download/d/b/7/db72d4e0-fbd1-4b76-bfa0-1ff20f6aec8d/m12usweb.exe

    If this converts your file, then Money Plus Sunset should be able to open the Money 2004 file.

    If all else fails, you can do a qif export of all your accounts and then an all-accounts-at-once import into Money Plus Sunset.  This will loose some data.  If you go this route, a useful discussion is in Dick Watson's FAQ page:

    http://littlegreengecko.com/MSMstuff/faq.html

    Search there for qif export.

    Note that if you are able to use Money Plus Sunset you should definitely do the mnyob99.dll replacement that is described in the first "sticky" thread in this forum:

    Post back and let us know how you make out or if you need more help.

    I guess you have a Canadian Money 2000 DeLuxe installation disc and I suggest you make a copy of it.  I'm glad I have a copy of my Money 2000 International English installation disc because the original CD is 18 years old and is becoming problematical: the copy on a USB stick works fine.

    If you succeed in getting your data into Money Sunset, please let us know how you like it; what features, if any, you have lost and what features, absent in 2000, make Sunset better.
