MS Money & Windows 8?

My friends laptop has gone belly up and they have to replace it. The only problem is that they are an avid user of Microsoft Money. The new laptop is sure to have Windows 8 installed so does anyone know if this will support MiS Money, or even perhaps whether windows seven supports it and it is worth searching for a laptop with that pre-installed?

MS Money is an old program and is not guaranteed to work with W8. He can try it but he might have problems depending on the version he has.

I have Money 2005 and it works a treat on both Windows 7 and 8.

Windows 7 works just fine with - wait for it - Money 97... :-) (If I were your friend, I'd try and find a new laptop with W7 installed rather than W8 anyway. There's still plenty knocking about. I just picked up a nice one from the Argos Outlet store on eBay.)

Legslip, Microsoft's Windows Compatibility Center should give you an idea.

See here for Windows 8 and here for Windows 7.

I use Money 2005 with W7 and records going back to 1994 and it works fine.

I should not have said that!!!!!

Think we'll search for a Win 7 laptop. Prefer it to Win 8 anyway!

Thanks all.
