  • First and most important, back up your Money files (Money.mny and any .mbf files) to a DVD, flash drive, or some other medium.  It is possible that your hard drive is failing and has corrupted your Money file or Money program installation.

    Next, look for your Sample.mny file (usually in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money or C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Money) and double-click on it so see if that opens successfully.  If so then maybe your .mny file is corrupt and you should try opening a recent backup to see if that works.

    If the Sample.mny file also doesn't open, try re-installing Money.  If you really have Money 2004 you can re-install from your original disk.  If it's actually Money 2005 then see the second "sticky" thread in this forum:

    to download and install a version that is suitable for your region.

    If none of this helps, post back with the version of Windows that you are running and just what you tried and what happened.

  • In addition, reboot your computer first, if you have not done so.
