Cannot open Money files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have upgraded to Windows 10 from 7 and my version of Money is Microsoft Money Plus Deluxe. When trying to open my files, after entering my password, an attempt is made to open the files & then I get this message " Money can't open this file because it was created using a different version of Money" I can then click OK or send error report.

    How can I get these files to open now?

  • That would happen if you installed the wrong version of Microsoft Money. See what is currently the second post in this forum, and install the appropriate version.

  • Thank you... wish me luck!  I am in Australia so no different regions here.

  • If your file was originally from Australia, you need the International English version of Money 2005 to open the file.

    Your attempts with Money Plus may have created a *.m14 file. You will need that file for Money 2005 International English. If there is no *.m14 file, look for another *.m?? file with a datetime from when you tried to use Money Plus.
