Money 98: How to Run Money 97 After Installing Money 98

PSS ID Number: Q171713 Article last modified on 03-26-1999




The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Money 98
  • == Microsoft Money, version 5.0 for Windows 95 ==


Do not install the Money trial version in the same folder as a previously installed version of Money. If you do this, you overwrite your previously installed version of Money and you cannot return to the earlier version. Additionally, it is important that you make a backup of your Money data file before you convert it to Money 98. After you convert your data file to Money 98, you cannot open it in an earlier version of Money.

After you install Money 98, you may find that you are not able to launch Money 97 from the shortcut and the Money 97 payment reminder no longer functions. This issue occurs even if you installed Money 98 into a different folder and later removed it.

When you try to start Money 97, you receive the error message:

Money could not update the Payment Reminder because the file fileaxs.dll is either missing or corrupted. If this error continues, try reinstalling Money.

If you reinstall Money 97, Money 98 will no longer start. You receive the message:

Error Starting Program A required .DLL file, MSCOFD.DLL, was not found.


To Make Money 98 Function Again

To resolve this issue, reinstall Money 98. During Money Setup, you may receive the following error message:

The Money 98 setup was not completed successfully.

After you click OK, Money 98 should function correctly.

To successfully start Money 97, when both Money 97 and Money 98 are installed on the same computer follow these steps:

Start Money 97 From Windows Explorer

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Windows Explorer.
  2. Explore the drive that Money 97 is located on. Double-click the Money 97 folder.
  3. In the right side of the Explorer window, double-click the Msmoney.exe file. This opens Money 97.
