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

Margaret,
Are you pointing to the correct location of the Money Talks folder on the external drive? That is not a default location, so you need to tell the restore command where that location is. Browsing for files and folders in MT is the same function as you are used to in Windows.

Margaret:

Generally, you type in the letter of your external drive in the path
name, when it asks where you want to place the files.

So, you open money talks on your old computer.

go to the file menu and select backup.  It says enter the folder where
the files will be backed up," so, you type in the letter of your
external drive.  If you are not sure what that is, you can find it in my
computer when the device is connected.

Tab down to the OK button or press enter.  Note there is a browse for
folders button, but you don't want that in this instance.

On the win. 7 machine, select the restore backup and point it to that
same drive to restore from.

Pamela,

Just to take things from the top, if

I copy mt_backup from the XP and paste it on the external drive, is it
what I want to do?

mt_backup is in C:\To Be Backed Up on the XP and

mt_backup has

Address C:\To Be Backed Up\mt_backup Go

templates

Account1.mtf

category.ini

items.ini

paynames.ini

Primary Checking.mtf

When the register on the XP was up to date and mt_backup had been copied
to the external drive, I think I had already selected restore from
backup and it did not bring the register on the Windows 7 up to date,
but I'll happily try it again if I'm sure what should be on the external
hard drive.

Right now, , it looks like the register on the Win 7 is only up to date
some time in September. There are entries past then, but they haven't
been cleared, some deposits are missing, and other information isn't
accurate.

Thanks for your patience,

Margaret

This is not Rob, of course, but if you open money talks on your win 7
machine, you can go to the file menu and select restore from backup. It
will ask where you are restoring from, so point to your thumb drive or
whatever, and it will know where to place the files.

Margaret,

I suspect you are not supplying the correct path to the Restore function
on your Windows 7 machine. You might try the Browse function, and be
sure you are pointing to the correct drive/folder.

Another possibility is that you backed up to a folder on your removable
drive from the XP machine instead of the root. You can check this by
going to the Backup Files option on your Windows XP copy of Money Talks,
and checking the path which is shown. It is that path you want to use
when restoring on the Windows 7 side.

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

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.

I got an error installing the .exe:

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
