    When I purchased my computer, which operates on Windows XP in 2003 it already had Microsoft Money 2003 installed on it. I wasn't given a cd with the programme on it. When I close the programme down it backs up to My Documents and a floppy disk.

    I am now about to purchase a new computer which runs on Windows 7.

    Can anyone tell me please if there is any way of transferring the Money programme to the new computer ?

    You'll have to either find a copy of Money 2003 on eBay or buy a program called PCmover which would hopefully transfer all programs and data to the new computer. I've never used it, but it's your only other option.

    Buying the install media would probably be best. Kind of surprised they didn't give you the media. When we bought my wifes laptop years ago, they gave us the install media for Money. We have it running on Windows 7 now.

    MS Money was discontinued in 2008, before Windows 7 came out so there could be problems running an old version of Money on Windows 7, but this guy got it to run: http://forums.techguy.org/all-other-software/912521-solved-microsoft-money-restoring-data.html

    He never said what version of Money he had but I'm guessing 2006 or 2007. You could probably find a cheap copy of 2003 and try it out.

    Eventually you'll have to get rid of Money and move on to something else. Now might be a good time to do it.
