  1. I'm in the UK: I had the "Money cannot open [zzz].mny, possibly because it is a read only file or you do not have permission to change it or your disk is write protected" " error message after "upgrading" to a new Windows 10 laptop and reinstalling Money 2005 from my original discs. The program would run, but would not open my .mny file. After much searching, I found the solution at https://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/479281b2-90f9-42ca-85f7-644fc6e1e5c3/download-microsoft-money-installation-files-solve-activation-and-some-other-errors?forum=money - I downloaded the latest version of UK Money 2005 from a link on that page and installed it. I then right-clicked the program icon and chose Run as Administrator. Worked first time! A colossal relief. (I did not need to do either the Registry hack or update the mnyob99.dll file - the new download installation files has installed version 14.0.120.1105, the latest version.) So, thanks to Cal Learner who moderates that page and I'm writing this for the benefit of everyone else who'll be searching madly for a fix - check the link above. Good luck Chris
