  • You can get this (unhelpful) error message for several reasons.  To help us help you, please let us know:

    What version of Money were you using before the crash, - year and region? 

    When you installed Money after the crash, what version did you install?  

    Was that version from a download or a disk?

    Is you password associated with a Microsoft passport, - i.e. email and password combination?
