  • It used to work with Windows 10, but with the latest version released today (16th July 2015), it now fails to load. It is looking for Internet Explorer version 6 and fails as it cannot load it. I assume this is because Microsoft have chosen to replace IE with their new browser. If anyone knows of a solution, I would love to know

    Thursday, July 16, 2015 1:42 PM
  • Yes, Money stopped working after latest version of Windows 10 (10240 - July 16, 2015) was installed. Microsoft has included both IE11 and new browser Edge with the build. However whatever components Money is looking for have been removed. Has anyone tried reinstalling Money?

    Update: Tried reinstalling Money however the problem remains. I am reporting it in Insider Forums.

  • Only partly re-assuring I fear, if very well done by those who found this work around (for which thanks). One wonders if unexpected effects may occur elsewhere... Personally, I shall upgrade my laptop and make sure MSMoney and everything else works fine before upgrading the desktop. Not sure I know enough about running a VM to go that route.

    Of all the other progs I have looked at AceMoney seems to have most of MSMoney's abilities but would take some getting used to.

    I'm thinking it's a bit late in the process (i.e. one week to go) for Microsoft to be fiddling....

    Thursday, July 23, 2015 5:18 AM
  • This is why I love the Internet. Well done and thanks.

    I'll feel more comfortable when the real public version becomes available and this fix is hopefully not needed. After all the original registry key was made that value for a reason. And hopefully this fix will still work in further updated versions of Windows 10

  • The 'Get Windows 10' logo, when activated, says my PC is compatible with W10, and there are 0 problem apps. This is a message from Microsoft. Well, now we know this is not true - MSMoney will not work without a modification. An interesting question of liability!

  • Tried the registry change but couldn't the "version" wasn't 9.11.10240.16384. Could be because I have an older version of Money - 2001?

    Waiting for some fix.

    Saturday, August 1, 2015 2:38 PM
  • Still no good with me, tried all the fixes etc. but it still won't allow me to create new payees (which is essentially breaking the software). I've used Money for about 7 years and before that, my father used it for years and years. 

    I've tried alternatives and tried with Excel but nothing is the same as Money. I am falling in love with Windows 10, so I really don't want to have to compromise and go back to 8.1.

    Come on Microsoft, sort it out!

  • Hi Dave

    I have been following this post and also use Money2005, which I do not want to lose when and if I upgrade to Windows 10. What is the correct key that you have updated please as I keep reading about mnyob99dll and the reg edit but these seem to relate to the Sunset version?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sunday, August 2, 2015 7:31 PM
  • Hi mcmp59

    Using regedit you only need to change the registry key  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

    Click on the Internet Explorer key and you should then see in the right hand viewing pane about 10 parameters including one which says "version"

    Right click on this and select modify

    Change value to 9.11.10240.0 (mine was previously 9.0000) and then exit regedit 

    Note - I did not need to do anything with any dll's

    Hopefully MS Money 2005 UK version should then work

    Let me know how you get on

    Sunday, August 2, 2015 10:07 PM
  • I  tried  that change  didn't help.
    Monday, August 3, 2015 2:54 AM
  • Hi Dave

    Thanks for that. I haven't had the message that I can download the upgrade yet but will probably hang on for a bit anyway to allow initial bugs to be ironed out. At the moment my version reads as 9.11.9600.17905, unless Windows 10 changes it. Will wait and see but hopefully have more of an idea what to do when I do upgrade. Otherwise I suppose it will have to be running Money in compatibility mode.

    Thanks again.

    I tried running Money in compatibility mode but it didn't work as it was still looking for IE6 (I tried both win 7 and win XP compatibility).

    So I think your choices are stick with what you've got or upgrade to Win 10 and make the registry change.

    BTW - you can download from Microsoft their Win 10 download tool if you want to upgrade but don't want to wait for your upgrade notification.

    Are you sure you changed the right registry key as it is easy to make a mistake?

    Monday, August 3, 2015 6:37 PM
  • Thanks it's worked for me. Was worried that I might mess it up, followed instruction's and worked fine. Hope everything else is ok though changing the registry, I have wrote everything down so if needs be will put back. Thanks again.
    Monday, August 3, 2015 10:48 PM
  • Thanks for this but for the novice could you make it the instruction even more simple.

    I have got into the registry to HKey Local Machine/Software/Microsoft/Wow6432Node

    On the right hand side it says Default  REG_SZ (value not set)

    If I click the Wow6432Node I get Foxit Reader

    I note if I right click Wow6432Node I get some options - is it these I use.

    Thanks

    Tuesday, August 4, 2015 8:38 AM
  • linkyyork

    Follow the instructions above and get to the right registry key which is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

    By your own admission you have only navigated to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node

  • Right took a deep breath and jumped in...

    I did not want to wait until every American had been upgraded so used the download tool. Had lunch, glass of Sauvignon Blanc, watched a bit of the cricket on TV and lo! the laptop was proudly showing Windows 10. Had a bit of a hiccup with Onedrive but bashed it into submission and launched MSMoney. No surprise it asked for IE6.

    Made a restore point, edited the Registry (just type 'regedit' in the wee box) as per numerous posts (be VERY careful here folks as there are similar entries) and pow! we were up and running. A 'fake' transaction duly showed up on the desktop later.

    So there we are. I have not yet tried downloading. If we manage okay for about a year I shall upgrade the office desktop.

    By the way the Microsoft compatibility site lists all versions of MSMoney as being just fine for W10. Hah! Hah!

    Good luck all!

    Tuesday, August 4, 2015 6:34 PM
  • This worked fine for me (thanks all).

    But for very novice users....

    To run regedit, start Windows Power shell and enter regedit at prompt.

    When you've closed regedit and exited power shell, reboot your pc and let it update.

    Then (hopefully) Money 2005 should work.

    Saturday, August 22, 2015 6:15 PM
  • Another data point:

    A few weeks ago I did a clean install of W7x64 on this machine for reasons unrelated to MSMoney. I did not reinstall any browsers -- so only the default IE was installed, which, when last I checked, was IE11. In the course of that clean install, I reinstalled MSMoney (see version below) and did then mnyob??.dll patch.

    A few minutes ago I installed Windows 10 as an upgrade from Windows 7.  I am running Money Sunset Personal -- Microsoft Money Plus Deluxe Version 17.0.120.3817.  The previously mentioned Version key, in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer, in this install, shows as 9.11.10240.16384

    I made NO registry changes.  MSMoney opened normally and I could navigate normally, with no complaints about needing to reinstall IE5 or IE6.

    I have not tried to import any *.ofx files, but I don't anticipate any problems as those who have done the .dll patch have been OK in that regard.

    This suggests that the speculation about the problem having to do with the length of the Version value may not be the whole story.

  • «This suggests that the speculation about the problem having to do with the length of the Version value may not be the whole story.»

    Note that I have not upgraded to W10 yet so I am only speaking from what I have read.  But I think you are not correct.  I believe that the latest update of W10 changed the IE version to one with a shorter number of digits.  Check it out.

    Sunday, August 23, 2015 3:42 AM
  • Previous posts have indicated that a Windows 10 update from Microsoft eliminated the problem a week or so ago. An MS employee had certainly advised me of the Registry fix prior to this, so MS are well aware of the problem.

    I have been able to use MSMoney (UK2005 version), and also download Bank Statements.

    Check what out?  If you cannot read in my post the Version value in my registry, and compare it with the Version value others have posted as causing a problem, I don't see that my checking anything out is going to have much value.

    I also able to run Money after W10 Update.  I plan to update my productivity system from 8.1 to 10.

    Is there MS Release notes on the update that confirms the fix?

    Monday, August 24, 2015 1:55 AM
  • When I first loaded the Windows 10 on 22nd August 2015 my MSMoney 2004 did not work and repeatedly got the error message that please load IE 6. This is not possible in Windows 10. However, someone in the forum suggested that I edit the registry which I did not do. Then another gentleman suggested that I uninstall Money 2004 restart windows 10 and then reinstall the money afresh. Power off. when you restart Windows will update data and Money 2004 will work.

    I have thus not lost any data of MS Money. Windows 10 is a great OS and I like it. 

    Monday, August 24, 2015 8:16 AM
  • I just read on a Dutch forum that iT doesnt work together with Edge. Money requires a versies of Internet Explorer on your PC. You should set IE11 as your default browser instead. That should do the trick. Pls note that I have not migrated to W10
    Monday, August 24, 2015 7:05 PM
  • This solution worked!!! I can access all of my account info in Microsoft Money 2004 again on Windows 10! No registry alteration, just uninstalled, made sure IE was default browser, restart and reinstall Microsoft Money 2004. It opened right up and allowed me to resume entering transactions, etc. 
    Tuesday, August 25, 2015 12:38 AM
  • When you restarted your PC it will probably have auto-updated. W10 has been (silently) fixed by MS. So all may be well but we must cross our fingers!
