If you’re not familiar, Microsoft Money Plus it’s a personal finance management software created by Microsoft that allows you to monitor your bank accounts and expenses, but this software was discontinued in 2008, and Microsoft isn’t working on it anymore. Some users prefer using Microsoft Money Plus over other solutions, and since this is an older software, some issues are going to happen.

The common problem with Microsoft Money Plus on Windows 10 is that it requires Internet Explorer 6 to run. Don’t worry, you won’t need to install Internet Explorer 6, this is just an error that occurs because Money Plus relies on Internet Explorer, and it checks the registry for it.

How to solve various issues with Microsoft Money in Windows 10

According to the reports, in Windows 10 registry value for Internet Explorer is not supported by Money Plus, and therefore it checks the system for a default version of Internet Explorer, in this case Internet Explorer 6 in order to run. It’s a minor registry bug, but it can be fixed easily.

Solution – Change the registry values for Internet Explorer

  1. In the Search box in Windows 10 type regedit, and when the application appears right click it and choose Run as administrator.
  2. On the left side you need to navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
    if you’re on 64-bit version of Windows. (If you’re using 32-bit version go to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer)
  3. In the right pane you need to find Version registry value
    Modify its value from 9.11.10240.16384 to 9.11.10240.1638.

That’s it, just save the changes and you’re good to go. As you can see this is just a minor registry error, and by changing it Microsoft Money Plus should be working without any problems on Windows 10 now.
