  1. Patty, I understand what you are saying but we need to be realistic. In the Microsoft world, Money and us the users, are the proverbial pimple on an elephant's behind (= butt in the US). It has provided no income for years and will not do so. It is a shame that personal finance/home banking software is such a niche market. The only reason I became a Money user all of those years ago was that here in the UK, Quicken pulled out as they couldn't make any money either. Its sad because it is a great use of a home pc but sadly the vast majority would rather the bank default their mortgage payments
  2. Billy, Glad that you got there in the end. I think that I should point out that there is no evidence that the updates involved MS Money in any shape or form and I would be surprised if it did. It is more likely that this was a side-effect of fixing something else. I suppose what I am really trying to say is that it would be dangerous for us to think that future 'issues' with MS Money will be fixed because they listen to us as a user base. Money is after all an unsupported product and that is how we should regard it.
  3. On Tuesday (i.e. 11th August) Microsoft issued some updates, none of them to MS Money of course. It would seem that after installing these updates the registry hack is no longer necessary. I have tested this by reinstating the original Internet Explorer version to '9.11.10240.16384' and running Money (Sunset version) and have had no problems since. I would, therefore, strongly recommend ensuring that all updates provided by Microsoft have been installed on your machines and then reversing the registry hack as we still do not know what side effects changing the Version number might have.
  4. Billy, The message about IE5 (as is the IE6 messages) is essentially a spurious message. The message means that when running Money it encountered what is known as an 'exception' (basically an error condition it didn't know what to do with) but rather than leave a cryptic message that looks like technical gobbledygook, Money's developers tried to handle the exception more elegantly by presenting the user with a meaningful message. It just happens that when the version of Money that you are using was written the version of Internet Explorer that was current then was version 5. People running
  5. Simon, welcome aboard. As a point to be made, "until the money issues are fixed" is the heart of the matter. As a discontinued application Money has no issues and nor does Microsoft have issues with Money. It's us the users who have the issues!!! The options would appear to be: 1) Keep your Windows 8.1 in a virtual environment to run Money (and any other applications that may not run under Windows 10) and install Windows 10 2) Keep your Windows 8.1 as is so that you can run Money (and any others....) and risk turning 8.1 into an XP-style scenario where you cannot ever move off of it 3) A
  6. Further to my post regarding the registry hack. Anecdotal evidence is suggesting that the issue may be as simple as the length of the Internet Explorer version number in the Registry. Apparently entering the Version as '9.11.10240.1638' will also work. I have been happily using Money under Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer 11 where the Version in the Registry is '9.11.9600.17905'. I note that whilst my Revision Number segment, '17905', is the same length as in Build 10240, '16384'. However my Build Part, '9600', is one less in length than that under Build 10240, '10240'. This suggests tha
  7. Apparently there is a registry hack that will allow MS Money, including Sunset, to run under Windows 10: 64-bit version of build 10240 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer] "Version"="9.11.10240.0" (originally: 9.11.10240.16384) 32-bit version of build 10240 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer] "Version"="9.11.10240.0" (originally: 9.11.10240.16384) I haven't tried it myself yet.
