So I'm none to delighted to report that from this end user's point of view
Microsoft Money 2005 is still a bust, a laughing stock, a "beta," a typical
Microsoft product, a piece of ship, a travesty, an imbroglio, a (your
favorite phrase o' derision here).
I bought it back in October. Tried to upgrade from my old, trusty Money 2002
file. Crash. Burn. Duplicate entries. Yodlee errors. Duplicate accounts. MSN
Synching problems. Roll back to prior version.
Ah! The fall update is released! Try again. Crash. Burn. Duplicate entries.
Yodlee errors. Duplicate accounts. MSN problems. Roll back to prior version.
That was several months back, so tonight I thought I'd give it another go.
It's been a few months, so those smart people at Microsoft surely have all
that sorted out by now, right? Alas, no. Install. Start with sample.mny to
let all the updates and patches wash over me. Gingerly, gingerly now: open my
trusty Money files. Let them be updated. Look around carefully. Sync with
...Arrgh! Duplicate accounts. OK, I'll try to "merge" again. Still running,
though. Go to the E*Trade account, click "Account Summary"....
...(Tongue, please press into cheek.) Delightful! "Microsoft C++ Runtime
Error: The application (msmoney.exe) has requested the Runtime to terminate
in an unusual way."
Which is geekspeak for crash! Burn!
Quick repair. Still no love. So I'll remove and reset the online services
connections. Removed fine. Try to reset: "The list is temporarily
unavailable. Try again later." Quality.
So now let's try on a completely different computer: the home PC instead of
my laptop. Installed fine, updated OK with sample.mny loading (Money
v18.104.22.1685). Converted my old Money file, then more of the same:
duplicate entries, duplicate accounts, the whole deal.
Like i said at the top: Several months on, still sucks.
1) Do you care that we users are *still* experiencing these issues?
2) Are you working on this?
3) Wanna give us a hint as to when the travesty will end?
