Microsoft Money 2001 Standard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just bought new computer with Windows 8.1 and reinstalled Microsoft Works Suite with Microsoft Word and Microsoft Money 2001 Standard.  I had been using both programs with Windows XP.   I cannot bring up Word - no error message.  Money will open BUT I cannot load the backup files from the external hard drive.  It asks for a password.  I have been using this Microsoft Money without a password ever since I can remember.  How do I get my backup files to load???

    Thank you

  • One other possibility is that you upgraded Money to a newer version sometime in the distant past and have forgotten about that.  Trying to open a file made with a newer version sometimes results in Money giving the "incorrect password" error.  Do you maybe have a disk from a newer version of Money?

    If you can still use Money on your old computer, open it and go to Help>About to see the version.  Money 2001 was version 9.

    If that is the root cause, there are some options for regaining access.  Post back with what you find.
