Despite not being developed for over 15 years, Microsoft Money 2005 still works perfectly in Windows 10 (and as far as I can see, also Windows 11) but you will need to download and install the last-available versions. This post explains how.
I used the 16-bit Microsoft Money version 3.0 for Windows 3.1 for about seven years, until I upgraded to Windows XP in 2003. I then moved to Money 2004 and had all but given up hope that I could obtain the last localised UK edition (2005) until I discovered this afternoon that Microsoft now make it available to download for free (see below for links).
Hi Gareth.Thank you so much for posting this. I have used MS Money for years, but the version I had was running on an old XP laptop which was grinding to a halt. I downloaded the MS Money Sunset, but that would not open my old money file. I found a post that said Sunset would only open US versions. I was in despair because I thought I was about to lose 11 years of financial history and then I found your site. I have installed MS Money 2005 on my Windows 8 computer without problem and it has opened my old MS Money 2002 file again without problem. Thank you for your help! Sarah.
Read all of the various comments with interest as like all, I have an old version (v11.0) of money that has been increasingly unreliable. This morning it started crashing whenever I opened the investment portfolio. Having read all the comments I bit the bullet and downloaded Money 2005 from the link at the top.Unfortunately the problem that I seem to have is that the program hangs when I try and convert my existing money file to 2005. I have also gone back to an earlier back-up in case the MNY file was corrupted.Is there a known problem with the conversion of older version files to 2005 and anything that I need to so to solve my rather critical issue?Thanks like everyone for any help or solution that you can offer, Jon
Very many thanks. In common with most of the other comments above, it is great to have found a link to a UK version of Microsoft Money. Having used it for many years and recently upgraded my laptop, I tried various downloads, but they were all the US version which will not open Money files saved in the UK version. I used your link to download the 2005 UK version and bingo! Fabulous. As an aside, how great that you are from St Andrews. One of my favourite places in the UK and home town of my good lady wife. Cheers.
I was tearing out my hair after installing Windows 10 and trying to get Money Plus to cooperate. Many thanks for making the 2005 download available. Problem solved and I am able to download bank statements once again. If it helps anyone else there are some really useful guides here at
Dear Gareth,I appreciated our help some years ago when I downloaded Microsoft Money 2005. This has been working beautifully ever since. I have now acquired a new computer and would like to download afresh. Is your link still active and details of patch for windows 10. 2b1af7f3a8
