Portfolio Manager display size reduced in Money UK (v14) RRS feed

  • Question

  • After many years of correct and voluminous operation, my Portfolio Manager display has shrunk to a 6cm square! Needless to say, it should be several screens long and although the information is actually there (and available by scrolling both ways), it is virtually unusable.

    Also the navigation pane only shows 'Common tasks' (with its dropdowns), but the bottom half of those words are invisible!

    Does anyone have a solution please?

  • This behavior was reported for Money 2007 running on XP:

    One reported (but unconfirmed) solution is as the end of that thread:

       Ahh I just found the solution!

       Open up a command prompt and type the following commands each by each.

       regsvr32 jscript.dll
       regsvr32 vbscript.dll

    Let us know if this works for you.

  • Bill

    Thanks very much for getting back so quickly. I had found that response while searching for an answer - but I wasn't convinced that it was a safe move to make!

    Would you recommend trying it?

  • Actually, before you try fiddling with dll registration I would try a re-install of Money.  See the second "sticky" post in this forum:

    https://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/479281b2-90f9-42ca-85f7-644fc6e1e5c3/download-microsoft-money-installation-files-solve-activation-and-some-other-errors?forum=money

    to download and install the UK version.  If this doesn't help, I would then try applying the patch for mny99.dll that is described in the first "sticky" in this forum:

    https://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/d28d6921-1f01-430f-b33e-f5a3ec47077b/money-plus-bug-and-solution-mnyob99dll?forum=money

    Although that post doesn't explicitly state that the patch works with UK Money, I believe that it does.  And you can always re-install UK Money if the patched dll causes trouble.

    Re the dll registration approach, I am not a Windows expert, so I am hoping that a more experienced user will chime in here, but here are my thoughts:

      - the regsvr32 command registers a dll - i.e. it places an entry for it in the Windows registry

      - this link has a step-by-step process for using regsvr32 - http://viralpatel.net/blogs/register-dll-files/

    So I think that the process would be:

      - be sure that you have good backups of all of your data files

      - create a restore point

      - open a command window and try the suggested registrations

    If this doesn't help, then you can restore your system using the restore point that you created.  If it does fix the problem, there is still the issue of how these dlls became "unregistered" in the first place.  Some unpleasant possibilities would be a failing hard drive or a malware infection.  I would be especially diligent about keeping good backups until you sort this out.

    Let us know if any of this helps.

  • It's taken me a long time to summon up the courage, but I finally applied the 2 dlls proposed above - and BINGO, I now have a full-sized Portfolio again!

    Many thanks for all your input.
