MS Money 2005 Issues
I installed MS Money 2005 two days ago, having been an MS Money 2000 user
prior to that (and I even used a version prior to that as well). I figured it
was about time for an upgrade. I started with a new file, since I wanted to
start from scratch, so no upgrade hassles.
I have started noticing some odd behaviors. Specifically:
a) When I first installed MS Money, some of the Canadian banks I use were in
the list. Once I did an Internet update, they are gone. Specifically, all
banks that start with the word "Canada - ...". How do I get my version of
Money to recognize these bank...Money 2005 changing security settings?
I have used Money 2005 without a problem for the past 3 years but a few days

the following message:

I have Money 2003 on my desktop. I purchased a laptop that will
replace my desktop. I also purchased Money Plus Deluxe for the new
laptop. I do not plan to install Money 2003 on my new laptop, but I
do want to transfer and convert my 2003 file. How do I do this.
When Money Plus recognize that I have an existing money file, will I
still be prompted to get the free online services? I already have
online services for 5.95 a month.

I have two money files, and I was wondering if there is a way to
specify which one Money should open on startup via some sort of
command line. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Yes. You could enter the name of the Money file into a command line.

I'm trying to create a new clean Money file because I'm getting the error

Reinstalling doesn't help - I think Money has a basic flaw when moving from
one country to another (I moved from the UK to the US) and you change the
Base currency used.
So - I thought... I can easily update my bank account details again, and I

I've tried setting the Online Service Settings so that the transactions

should be it.

I have tried to backup to two different 4GB USB flash drives and Money 2007

backup path and it appears to be the correct path. A further check of the
USB drives, shows there is a partial backup money file on the drives, but
they are considerably smaller than the compressed file stored on my HDD. I
have googled for a fix, but haven't turned up anything yet. Any suggestions
on how to remedy this situation?

Trying to upgrade from Money 2000 to Money 2004. When it tries to update the
data file I get the message "Money cannot locate filename or cannot open it,
possibly because it is read only file, you do not have permission to change
it, or your disk drive is write protected......". I have run the Money
repair tool and the salvage program. Each indicates thet the file has no
problems. However it will not update the file for use by 2004.
Any helpful tips??
Thanks in advance
Right click on your money file, select properties, and de-select the
read-only check box.

...Money Plus Deluxe download
Hi! I had purchased Money Plus Deluxe on the internet and received my
activation code and install download file. After installing the software I
burned the downloaded install file to a DVD and so I thought I was safe.
However, that is not the case, as I recently had to do a reinstall of the OS
and when I tried to copy the install file off of the DVD I had burned, my
laptop couldn't read the disc.
I'd go download the install file again, but it's past the 30 day limit for
me to download it again. So what I'd like to know is there someone out
there that can send me the ...Converting from Money 5.0
Believe it or not, I'm still using Microsoft Money 5.0.
It looks like I'm being "forced" to upgrade because my
bank is no longer support the "OFC" file format and it
doesn't look like I can use "OFX" in Money 5.0. Anyone
know of any problems with upgrading to Money 2004 right
Providing you are staying in the same region for the upgrade (US > US), then
Money reads all previous version's data files.

You are right, the date on the Money box says 2004, but I realised later that
it is the 2005 version - thank you Microsoft for such clear labeling!
And about my older version, recently having read so much in forums about
Money, I am beginning to doubt that it was a Canadian version. It did not
have online function for canadian banks (only US banks which I did not use).
And it came preinstalled with Microsoft Works. So I'm guessing it was Money
2003 US version.
But as I said my notebook has crashed so I only have the backup version
saved on an external drive.
What course of action...Sharing Money Files
There is a great deal of information in the help about sharing money files
with a spouse or a partner, but it appears that "sharing" may be an
overstatement. I want to be able to have both parties enter data and
synchronize back and forth using Passport Network credentials. Is that
possible? A post from Jan 2006 says "Nope." Has this issue been addressed in
later versions? I am using Money 2005. If there truly is no way to share
transaction level access to my Money file, the verbiage about sharing is
misleading, and borders on fraudulent.

Maybe others have seen this, but I don't recall it reported here.

like classification flattening and limited account name field width, and a

4. Running as admin
5. No compatibilities checked off under properties.
Nothing works. The download stops and the get the message that update fails
