    Hi
    Using a M1 14" Mac Book Pro with Parallels 18 and Window 11 and I have installed msMoney.
    The program opens Ok and I can open my money file. It then normally lets me open an account in the file but then I get the blue circle.
    I know MsMoney is a very old applications but it does suit my needs and I know it works on my PC under Windows 10.
    Any suggestion tweak that I could try to get Money working on my Mac would be appreciated.

    Thanks, it looks like the MS money data file is too big for parallels to handle.
    I can open msMoney ok and start & save a new data file ok but it can't manage my working data file which is 36,352KB.

    Looks as if Ive sorted it, found a "newer" version of Msmoney (2005) and this seems to work after it updated my old money file.

    So long as there aren't any security issues (shouldn't be if it's an offline app), then that should do you for a bit then.

    Side note: Kinda peeved that something flagged my account and poofed those initial replies (making it look like you're talking to yourself).
