Creating a .MNY file is the only thing that Money knows to do with a .MBF
file. I can only conclude that you didn't do what you reported having done.
Do you have a .MBF (Money Backup File) file? If so, either double-click/open
it or go into Money, select File|Restore Backup..., select Restore from a
backup file (at least this choice appears in M03 after use--I can't say for
sure that yours will ask), navigate to the .MBF and select it, click
Restore. Money will propose a place and ask where you want to put the .MNY
file it is about to create from the restored backup. Here's where you need
to pay close attention...
