[moneytalks] Re: Money Talks on New Windows 7 Machine

Rob and Pamela:

I got Money Talks 1.4.0.0 installed on the Windows 7 machine, but the entries 
in the register aren’t up to date and the entries from the installation my tech 
did stop being up to date around the beginning of September.  I tried following 
Pamela’s instructions “
You can do a back up on the first machine and use the restore back up on the 
new machine to bring the registry over., “ but am getting a “The selected 
folder does not contain a valid backup set” error message when I do the restore 
files.  The documentation says “

To backup your financial information, select Backup Files from the File menu. 
The program prompts you for the location of the backup. It is normally a good 
idea to back your files up to some kind of external media like a floppy drive 
or thumb drive. Whatever the case, select the location or provide the path to 
where you want the backups stored and press OK. The next time you use the 
Backup Files option, Money Talks remembers where you stored the backups last 
time and offers that path as your new default. To backup to that location 
again, just press OK. 

To restore a set of files, select Restore Files from the file menu. The program 
asks for the location of the backed up files and restores them to the Money 
Talks folder in your documents.”



I spent several hours on this and there’s probably something perfectly simple 
that I’m missing.  I can spend the time to manually update the entries in the 
checkbook register since it would only be two and a half months worth, but I’m 
afraid the copy of Money Talks on the Windows 7 computer is so messed up at 
this point that uninstalling and starting from scratch may be in order.  If you 
agree, could you please provide specific steps for what I do after I uninstall 
and reinstall?  There is 6 years worth of entries on the checkbook register on 
the XP and I’d like to be able to bring at least that over to the Win 7.



I greatly appreciate your patience.



Thank you,



Margaret

Hi Margaret,

 

I'm not sure where you got that old file, but try retrieving the latest Money 
Talks from the following:

http://www.aph.org/tech/mt_setup.exe

 

This is 1.4.0.0.

Rob and Pamela,

 

I tried installing the file a couple more times today and got the same error as 
before.  I’ll have to spend some time learning about the admin privileges with 
Windows 7 and will probably have to talk to my tech.  Before I spend all that 
time, there’s one thing I wanted to double check on.  When the installation 
begins, it says it is installing Money Talks 1.1.0.0.  Version 1.1.0.0 is on 
the Windows 7 machine now. When I click on check for updates it says “No update 
is available at this time.”  I don’t understand how this is supposed to help me 
get updates to 1.4.0.0 which is on the XP?

 

Thank you,

 

Margaret

Sounds like an administrative privilege issue.

Pamela,

 

I clicked on ignore this time when I got the error message and was able to 
start the program, but it’s

I should have admin priv.  I’ll have to find out how to double check.

 

Now what?

Try the ignore button, rather than abort.  Also, make sure you are logged into 
an admin account.  Otherwise, I'll have to let Rob comment on this one, as he 
is more familiar with win. 7.

Pamela,

 

I got an error installing the .exe:

 

Error graphic 942

An error occurred while trying to create a file in the destination 

directory:

Error 5: Access is denied.

Click Retry to try again, Ignore to skip this file (not recommended), or 

Abort to cancel installation. 

 

I aborted.  I think it gave the older version number rather than the newer one.

 

Now what?

 

Thank you,

 

Margaret

You can do a back up on the first machine and use the restore back up on the 
new machine to bring the registry over.

Pamela,

 

Thank you.  That doesn’t sound like to much of a chore.  Before I start, I have 
a question.  It took me a while to look at Money Talks on the new Win 7 since I 
was trying to learn the new OS and finding my way around it and I was updating 
MT on the XP for around a month so the register on the Windows 7 isn’t up to 
date.  Manually bringing it current wouldn’t be overwhelming for the one month 
or so, but I was wondering if before I install the .exe file you mentioned if 
copying the MT Backups folder to my external drive and pasting it on the MT 
Backups on the Win 7 so the files would be over written would allow me to skip 
having to manually update the register?  Or is there another way?  I’ve got 
about 6 years worth of entries and don’t want to mess up.

 

Thank you,

 

Margaret

Hello:

 

You can run the latest download by hand from:

 

http://tech.aph.org/mt_setup.exe

 

Install this over what you have and it will update, if the installed version is 
older.

 

Since you are not uninstalling, you shouldn’t need your key code. However, if 
asked for  a key code, then you can enter the key code you have.

Good Afternoon:

 

As part of the data transfer he did preparing My 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium 
machine my tech copied Money Talks and the files to go along with it from my XP 
Home computer.  My checkbook register initially initially appeared to be in 
reasonably good order once I re-arranged columns etc., but I discovered a big 
problem.

 

version 1.4.0.0  is on the XP

version 1.1.0.0 is on the Windows 7 and check for updates says no update is 
available.

 

I purchased the downloadable version so don’t have the CD.  I have my 
registration code.  Is there some half-way easy way of getting Money Talks on 
the Windows 7 the same as that on the XP so I can have the newer version and 
the register and all associated files will be up to date?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

 

Margaret
