    I finally found the 'Version' and did the "change". It did not work. It still told me to install IE 6.

    For those of you who are getting it to work is it because you are using the 'Sunset' version of MM?

    Also I am trying to get the MM to work after the upgrade/update to OS 10; where the program was already installed on my OS 8.1 Pro machine. Do I need to uninstall program and re-install it with the OS 10 now?

    Help!!!!!!
    OK......I Got It To Open!!!!!!!!!
    I changed more than just the one registry item
    I not only changed the 'Version' but also 'W2kVersion' and for good measure the 'svcVersion' to 11.0.10240.0 . The reason I changed the 'svc....' one because it too had 10240.16384 in it too.
    Maybe I'll try changing the 'svc.....' back to see if the program will still open.

    Changing the one item did not work but changing the 2 (3?) seems to have worked?

    Someone said they experienced crashes after the changes and getting the program to open? What were you doing at the time when it happened.

    I've tried the uninstall/reinstall and it doesn't make a bit of difference. Version 17 (is the Sunset version) and the last one published by MS. This build of the program worked great in Win7. And from what others have posted, it worked fine in Win8.1 'and' the earlier builds of pre-release Win10.

    Given the fact that it reportedly worked fine in earlier builds of Win10, I think there is at least hope that MS will fix the problem. Also, I did read (on another thread) somewhere earlier today that supposedly MS is aware of the problem and may have a fix for the problem in a few weeks. It looks like we will just have to wait and see.

    The registry hack worked inasmuch as the program starts without an error. However, when I tried to import a .qif file from my bank it crashed as it imported the file. I got the "Import complete" dialog box and immediately crashed. When I start it again the dialog box is still showing and immediately crashes again. I can't click OK to dismiss the dialog box.

    This solution worked for me! Yeah, it is absolute life saver for me!

    Thanks to "im-mad" who gave this wonderful solution in one the forums!!

    After much searching I have found this works for me
    MS Money (MoneyDlxSunset) has worked with following registry change.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer]
    "Version"="9.11.10240.0" (originaly: 9.11.10240.16384)
    I'm not sure about side effect by this change. registry change is at own risk.
    Great find
    It worked perfectly for me Thanks

    Can someone talk me through this? Thanks.
    Did you ever figure out? If not here are detailed instructions.

    To edit the registry RIGHT click on the start button, click run, type regedit and click OK. You should see about 6 items including HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Click on the ">" in front of it and you will have a bunch of registry keys drop down, scroll down to Software and click ">", next scroll down to Wow6432Node and click ">", next scroll down to Microsoft and click ">", scroll down to Internet Explorer and click directly on it. On the right side of the screen you will see "version". Right click version, next click modify. You will see a box with the default value. Change it to 9.11.10240.0 You can copy and paste it in if you want. Also if you have 32bit Windows you probably do not have Wow6432Node so Internet Explorer will be in Software\Microsoft. It's always best to reboot your computer after making registry changes Hope that helps.

    here is a little cmd script I modified to read the current version from the registry, change it to 9.0, run msmoney, and change the reg values back to original, make sure to change the location in the script to your location of msmoney.exe.

    I've only tested this on Windows 10 64bit Home Premium

    Warning, use at your own risk.

    I saved this as runmsmoney.bat when I used it for testing.


    @echo OFF

    setlocal ENABLEEXTENSIONS

    rem remove the rem below to print values found
    rem set showvalues=true

    rem your folder for msmoney.exe
    set msmoneyfolder="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Money Plus\MNYCoreFiles"

    set KEY_NAME1="HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer"
    set KEY_NAME2="HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer"

    set iskey1=true
    set iskey2=true

    rem get current Version for reg key1
    FOR /F "usebackq skip=1 tokens=1-3" %%A IN (
    `REG QUERY %KEY_NAME1% /v Version 2^>nul`) DO (
    set ValueName1=%%A
    set ValueType1=%%B
    set ValueValue1=%%C
    )

    if defined ValueName1 (
    if defined showvalues (
    @echo Key Name = %KEY_NAME1%
    @echo Value Name = %ValueName1%
    @echo Value Type = %ValueType1%
    @echo Value Value = %ValueValue1%
    )
    ) else (
    set iskey1=
    if defined showvalues @echo %KEY_NAME1%\Version not found.
    )

    rem get current Version for reg key2
    FOR /F "usebackq skip=1 tokens=1-3" %%A IN (
    `REG QUERY %KEY_NAME2% /v Version 2^>nul`) DO (
    set ValueName2=%%A
    set ValueType2=%%B
    set ValueValue2=%%C
    )

    if defined ValueName2 (
    if defined showvalues (
    @echo Key Name = %KEY_NAME2%
    @echo Value Name = %ValueName2%
    @echo Value Type = %ValueType2%
    @echo Value Value = %ValueValue2%
    )
    ) else (
    set iskey2=
    if defined showvalues @echo %KEY_NAME2%\Version not found.
    )

    rem change reg key to 9.0
    if defined iskey1 reg add %KEY_NAME1% /v Version /d "9.0" /f
    if defined iskey2 reg add %KEY_NAME2% /v Version /d "9.0" /f

    rem start msmoney
    start /wait msmoney.exe /d %msmoneyfolder%

    rem restore original version values
    if defined iskey1 reg add %KEY_NAME1% /v Version /d %ValueValue1% /f
    if defined iskey2 reg add %KEY_NAME2% /v Version /d %ValueValue2% /f

    I will be cancelling the Windows 10 reservation I have for this machine, at least until MS Money works or I find a good replacement. The last time I looked for a good replacement program was a long time ago and I could not find one. My bank supports, MS Money, Intuit Quicken or Quickbooks and spreadsheets (.csv). Not many choices.
    I feel exactly like you do. Microsoft Money Plus was the best little checkbook program there ever was. Several years ago, I briefly tried Quicken but didn't like it so I went back to the Microsoft Money Plus Sunset version. It has worked like a charm in Win7. Because I still have Win7 installed on a secondary computer (as a virtual machine), I am going to make do using the program in there for now. But I am keeping my fingers crossed that there will be some real fix for Win10. I understand others have made the program work with that registry hack. However, I personally don't want to do that (at least for the time being). There are always risks with these hacks, particularly now with the constant Windows Updates in Win10.

    [QUOTE=acer54;282168]After upgrading to build 10240 from 10166 I get this error when opening Microsoft Money (See attached image)
    Money worked fine in all previous Windows 10 builds but in 10240 not working.
    Anybody else having the same issues and is their a fix?[After upgrading to Win10, I downloaded MiscrosoftPlus Sunset Deluxe, made the registry changes and was able to transfer my MS Money files. I could import from my financial institutions for one day. The next day money plus kept shutting down. Other forums suggested a patch: mnyob99.dll, but it would not load or run. Other forums suggested removing an update I could not find. Has anyone found a solution yet?]

    I guess you like what your used to. I tried Money a while back, but didn't like it and went to Quicken. Since Money is no longer supported (and if you want to stay with Win10), you may want to bite the bullet and switch to Quicken while you still have access to your Money data. Who knows if Money will still work after a few more Win10 updates. Quicken has a conversion process that will convert Money files to the Quicken file format.

    You have a point in that even if it begins to work, it may again fail with the continuous Windows Updates. But it has continued to work in Win7 even though that Sunset version was published in 2010 or 2011. Also, others have indicated that it worked fine in Win8.1 since it's release. So I guess there is hope that MS might offer a lasting fix. But who knows.

    As for Quicken, I tried it for a while back in 2012. Something happened and it stopped importing my data files and no solution was offered from Quicken even though I had a paid version. So at that point, I went right back to MS Money (the free Sunset version).

    I find it amazing that there is seemingly so few (good) choices available for those of us who want to manage our checkbooks on our PCs versus the old fashioned method. I get the impression that many people have never thought (or perhaps have never been aware of checkbook programs). As a result, they just go online and compare the banks transactions with their manual pen written register. Personally, I hate that method after using MS Money for so many years.

    If MS does not offer a solution soon, I will try Quicken again. However, I am not going to buy it until they come out with Quicken 2016 (which will probably not be until September or the first of October given their past history). I say this for several reasons. First, I don't want this years edition only to get the nag screen a month later! Second, it appears Quicken is not even totally committing themselves to saying that Quicken 2015 is compatible with Win10. They indicate it 'probably' will work without problems--(per their web site).

    In the meantime, I am still hoping MS might offer some fix. We all have our own opinions, but for me, MS Money has been the best, hassle free option. Right now, I am continuing to use MS Money on my secondary computer that runs Win7 in a virtual machine. But I am prepared to give Quicken another try if necessary after their 2016 version is released.
