Solved Microsoft Money Plus Sunset Deluxe no longer works in Win 10

August 10, 2015 at 11:12:01
Specs: Windows 10
I have been following this thread about this problem. XpUser suggested replacing old Money with the Sunset Deluxe version, which I did. The new version removed the old but still gives the same error message requiring ie6.
Please, I need to be able to use my Money programme that I've been using since 2004, can you help.

mmm Is there any equivalent to the win-7 emulation mode- or whatever it's called - (where one could run XP compatible programmes in win-7)?

Looks like it's wiser to go dual-boot - your olde OS and win-10 - until all the bugs have been ironed out, and also assorted apps. software is updated to win-10...?

✔ Best Answer
Go HERE and read why modifying Windows Registry should help make this 6-year-old program work in Windows 10 . Be sure to also read THIS if you are not familiar with editing Windows Registry.

Thanks. I followed these instructions and changed the registry key, removing the last digit. this allowed the Money program to open but would not recognise my files as they were created with an earlier version of Money.
I removed the copy of Sunset that I'd tried out previously and re-installed my original 2004 copy of Money.
Although I now had my Money programme working again, the backup I had to restore was not the latest before changing to win10, but that's not too much of a problem, I can update the files manually gong online to my bank.
Bottom line is;- I'm working again and happy. Many thanks for your help
