Transfer Microsft Money 7 files to Microsoft Money Plus Sunset Deluxe RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been using Microsoft Money 7 on a very old laptop (8+ years) using Windows XP and I recently got a newer, faster laptop using Windows 7 which I just installed Microsoft Money Plus Sunset Deluxe onto. My question is how do I move all my files from Money 7 to my new laptop? What is the transfer process? I have everything set up, even bought a new flash drive. If anyone has been in a similar situation or could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

  • On the new Money Sunset install, apply the patched version of
    mnyob99.dll as described in what is currently the first post on
    this forum.

    1.  On the old computer, close Money.  Copy your latest *.mny file
    to your flash drive.

    If you have a permissions problem on the new computer, you can
    format the flash drive to FAT32 format and return to this step.
    FAT32 does not maintain ownership information.

    2. On the new computer, copy your *.mny file to a location that you
    have full control of and that is not mirrored by OneDrive or any
    other cloud software. This may be your Documents folder, or it may
    be a new folder that you create for the purpose.

    3.Open Money by right-clicking the file, and choosing Open.

    4.  Once inside, Tools->Options->Backup to set the backups to a
    place that exists on the new computer.  Use Browse to help find a
    place that exists.  Consider your backup strategy.  You may want to
    make the upon-exit backup to be a place in your Documents folder,
    and put your scheduled backup on a Flash drive.  That way, a hard
    drive crash does not make you lose all of your backups.
