Password problems converting Money to Quicken

I'm unable to convert my Money Plus Deluxe file to Quicken 2010 because Quicken does not accept the Windows Live ID or Money passwords that I use to open Money. I reset the Windows ID password on line, but for some reason Money does not accept the reset password. Is there anything I can do to get around this password problem and save my years of data?

Answer

I don't think it is Quicken that is rejecting your Money password.  Quicken actually uses Money to open the Money file (that's why you have to have the same version of Money installed that created your Money file), so it is most likely Money that is rejecting the password ... both in the Converter and (obviously) when you try to open the file directly with Money.

If you can open the file with Money directly, you should be able to get the file open in the Quicken "Money Converter".

I suggest you explain your problem to the Money experts in the Money forum, and see if they can help you to remove all passwords from your Money file ... or to do whatever it takes to get the file open.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
