installing Money 2002 on Windows 7

  Splodge 14:34 05 Jun 2010

Try as I might I cannot install Works 2002/Money onto my new computer and make it stick.

I get so far and even manage to transfer some accounts using a usb stick. But. when I power off and restart the comuter refuses to work, demanding I asks me to continue installation.

The other annoying thing is, I can copy my Money Home Page from my XP computer and get access, and update the different accounts and these will be read by the new computer but, log-off and on re-booting, nothing works, not even the stick!

Until I solve this, I have to use 2 computers and I just do not have the space!

I guess you're using Windows 7 or Vista?
I'm not surprised it doesn't work. It's 8 year old software.
Can you buy a more recent version? Or why not try Openoffice - it's free.

It should work with Win7 but it might be worth trying this patch for Money 2002 - read right down the page to see instructions for installing.

Yes, unfortunately Microsoft did not include Money in "Office 2007" and they have indicated that they will not produce a new edition. Besides, I have a number of active accounts going over those years and losing them is not an option.

Sea Urchin:

I will have a look! Thank you!

As it happens, I have had some success but the file copied across is only part of the original file. I am slowly typing in the rest from one account. When finished, I will log off and see if it stays!

If so, I am busy for the next year!

Have you tried running it "as administrator" and in XP compatibility mode?

Other than that it seems Money 2007 can run on W7 although there are a few minor glitches

  Splodge 16:55 05 Jun 2010

Thanks for that suggestion.

I will try that later when I have more confidence in the new system!

Incidentally, I finished the one account by typing in a LOT of data.

It did NOT survive a re-boot alas!

I run Money 2002 with no trouble at all on Windows 7.If Sea Urchin's suggestion doesn't work PM me.

  Splodge 17:26 05 Jun 2010

Yes Thanks!

PM? not sure what that is though!

And what version of Windows 7 do you have?

I too run Money 2002 with no problems at all on Win 7 (64bit).

Just did a standard install,haven't needed to use compatability mode or to run as Administrator. I know this doesn't help but at least you know it will work.

BTW I ONLY installed Money from the Works disc, not the complete Works suite, have you tried just installing Money??
