There are really only four NT issues that I know about.
1. You need to be using the 128 bit version of Service Pack 3. I doubt
that will come with your computer, and you will need to download it from
http://mssecure.www.conxion.com/cgi-bin/ntitar.pl not the ieitar.pl that you
might see on the Money site.
2. In the event that you either don't install SP 3 before IE 4, or have to
reinstall SP 3 later (which is likely, as it appears that you need to do
this after you install additional components, don't forget to click Start:
Run and type
regsvr32 rsabase.dll -- If you don't, you'll get the file corruption
error in Money.
3. Don't change the Installation Path suggestion on Money installation to
anything longer than what's suggested -- If you do, the Reminder will
eventually stop working and complain about the length of the path name.
4. You need to install as the Administrator, or you won't have access to
Good luck and let me know if any other troubles crop up.
