Coming from XP

    Coming from XP

    New to Windows 8 having previously been on XP on an Acer Inspire then Asus EEE, on which I was happily running MS Money2003 as part of MS Works Suite 2003.
    Having moved more up to date I need help in transferring MS Money to Windows 8 running on AcerV3 notebook. Tried the Acer data transfer without success.

    I would appreciate advice as to whether these old programmes should run on W8.

    You can't actually transfer programs from one PC to another as too much information is buried in the registry to make that a simple operation. There are apps that claim to be able to do that, but they have varying degrees of success.

    My guess is that anything from 2003 is unlikely to work on Win 8, but you could try installing it in compatibility mode.

    I've seen posts on another Forum which link to this Microsoft page:
    Download Microsoft Money Installation Files: Solve Activation and Some Other Errors

    There is a UK version of Microsoft Money 2005 on there, which reportedly works with Windows 8.

    I don't know if users of Money 2003 are eligible to use 2005 though.
