    WIN 10 Compatibility with MS Money 2003

    Hi Folks:

    I am presently running WIN8.1x64 on a DELL desktop XPS8700, and am considering changing to the current version of WIN10.

    Last week, an overnight, auto upgrade/download to WIN10 was done on my machine; however, I did not agree to Legalize and reverted back to WIN8.1. I did this because I had experienced two problems last year when running WIN10 on this machine:

    1. MS MNY2003 would not work due to its requirement of having IE6 installed.
    2. My Microsoft Account Profile became corrupted, for an unknown reason, and I was not able to logon to my machine.

    Last year, Problem #1. was resolved by doing a registry hack (see https://techjourney.net/microsoft-money-requires-internet-explorer-6-to-function-properly-error-in-windows-10/ for detailed info on that regedit procedure).

    Unfortunately, Problem #2. was not resolved; forcing me to do a DELL factory reset to WIN8.0; not a pleasant experience.

    Now that I am working my courage up to try using WIN10, my question with regard to my previous Problem #1. is:

    Does anyone know if the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry hack is still usable under WIN10 to change the IE version to be: 9.11.10240.0, thereby allowing me to continue to use MS MNY2003 ?

    I don't know about the reg hack still working, but you could try this: Make a complete image of your entire hard drive using Macrium Reflect Free, to an external drive. Verify it. Then do your upgrade. If you find problems, you just restore your image and you're back in business.

    Might give a look at Money Plus Sunset:

    Some of those Microsoft links appear to require Internet Explorer for access.

    Oh yes - Sunset. I can confirm this works on W10 - I know someone who uses it.
