Microsoft Money Deluxe Sunset Windows 10 - Autorun.inf missing or corrupt RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to install MS Money Deluxe Sunset version on a clean install of Windows 10 (previously using Windows 7) and get a message that the autorun.inf is missing or corrupt.   What do I need to do to get it to install under the new operating system?

  • You can run the Sunset installation program with command line
    switches that allows you to extract the files, so you can get to
    setup.exe and avoid any autorun.inf problem.

    Put the USMoneyDlxSunset.exe (or BIZ) into a subfolder, such as
    "My Documents" or "Documents.  Using a CMD window, CD to that folder,
    then run the following using the full path, not a relative path:

    USMoneyDlxSunset.exe /C /T:"C:\Users\<your name>\Documents\Sunset"

    This will extract all the files into a newly made subfolder
    (Sunset).  You may get a pop-up at the end that warns you that the
    program may not have installed correctly.  Cancel that dialog.

    Now you can run Sunset\Setup.exe to install, or using Explorer,
    double-click Setup.

    Following is a variation of that method of doing that with either a
    batch file run from the folder containing USMoneyDlxSunset.exe, or
    a list of commands that you can paste into a command window that you
    have used cd to change to the directory/folder that contains the
    USMoneyDlxSunset.exe file.

    ===================begin=======================
    cd %USERPROFILE%\*documents

    USMoneyDlxSunset.exe /C /T:%TEMP%\Sunset

    cd %TEMP%\Sunset
    setup
    ==============end================================

    Here is a description of what the four commands are doing:

    1.  switch the command window to your documents folder.  That way the
        USMoneyDlxSunset.exe will be accessible to run.  CD stands for Change
        Directory.  Directory is another word for folder.

    2.  do the extraction command putting the files in a new folder within your
        temp folder.


    3.  switch to that new folder.  That new folder has the setup.exe file as
        well as the other files needed for the install.

    4.  run setup.exe to do the Money Plus Sunset install.  For this purpose you
        do not have to type the .exe part, although is permitted

  • Thank you for the suggestion.  Did everything as you suggest, but when executing setup.exe from the new folder, I got the same message about missing or corrupt autorun.inf.   Is there a Plan B?

  • Not confident, but here is one to try. Try running MNYINST.EXE from that same folder. If it asks if you want to quit, say no.

  • I am having the same trouble. Your directions are slightly over my head. Can you dumb it down or direct me to a youtube video that shows it step by step.

    Thanks.

    Not really. Here is a very similar description that might have some advantages.  But if you cannot say what it is you don't understand how to do, you should see if you can get help from a friend who is more experience with computer stuff. I don't know if you have any idea of what a command window is. If you not only don't know, and you can't find that out, you need a local helper.   The method below is arcane, because it is written in way intended to work across different people's computers. I don't know what the path to your documents folder is. To represent those, I used the strings with the percent signs.

      ===============================================

    You can run the Sunset installation program with command line switches that allows you to extract the files, so you can get to mnyinst.exe and avoid any autorun.inf problem.

    Following is a method of doing that with either a batch file run from the folder, your documents folder in this example,
    containing USMoneyDlxSunset.exe, or a list of commands that you can paste into a command window that you have used cd to change to the directory/folder that contains the USMoneyDlxSunset.exe file.

    ===================begin=======================
    cd %USERPROFILE%\*documents

    USMoneyDlxSunset.exe /C /T:%TEMP%\Sunset

    cd %TEMP%\Sunset

    mnyinst
    ==============end================================

    4.  run mnyinst.exe to do the Money Plus Sunset install.
        For this purpose you do not have to type the .exe part, There is at
        least one case where mnyinst.exe worked and setup.exe did not.  If it
        asks if you want to quit, say no.
