  • Yes, there were some detailed instructions in a post awhile ago, but I can't find them now either.  I suggest that you look at the instructions in:

    https://microsoftmoneyoffline.wordpress.com/2012/12/02/windows-8-64-bit-version-compatibility-with-sunset-money/

    which describes the steps.

    To get to the "Radio Buttons" that Ameridan refers to, do the following in Windows 10:

      - Open File Explorer (a search on "File" will bring it up)

      - Select the "View" tab

      - At the far left top, click on "Options" and "Change Folders and Search Options"

      - In the pop-up window, select the "View" tab

    This will give you a list of options and you can make the changes that Ameridan lists.

    Once you have made the replacement, you may want to go back and reverse the "View" changes.

    Let us know if this helps.

  • First, run Windows Update to make sure that you have the latest updates from Microsoft for Windows 10.  Then replace your mnyob99,dll file with a patched version as described in the first "sticky" thread in this forum:

  • How do I do this, I read thru a lot of the forums and I am just not sure how to replace the mnyob99.dll file. Can you give me step by step instructions, I don't want to mess anything up.

  • It is fixed now, guess they put a fix through when they did that last major update. My Sunset and Plus are working fine and accepting downloads.
