ms money password issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • hard drive died and had to get a new one, old files were able to be copied BUT when trying to open my ms money file it keeps telling me the password is incorrect (older computer still opens the original file with that same password) realize I have to update the program to possibly sunset plus but if I can't get the old password recognized I will lose way too much info

  • If you install some versions of Money, and the file is newer than the installed version it can give that error. Also, Money 2005 original disks will not work right. They relied on servers that no longer exist.. Do not use that disk for installation or anything else regarding using Money. You would need the corrected install file.

    Go to what is currently the second thread in this forum and download the appropriate version for your country. If are in North America and you install Money Plus, place the patched file described in the first post in this forum after install.
