There are plenty of old software which have been discontinued by Microsoft in newer Windows version, despite the fact that many still love and use them. One such example is ‘Microsoft Money’ which has been officially discounted a while ago, but it works without a problem in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

There are many financial apps that you can use on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, but many just can’t forget about good old Microsoft Money and they want to keep using it in the latest Windows version, as well. Well, luckily for you, that’s still possible, even if it is officially “dead”. The official version of the program, however, won’t work on your Windows 8 device, unless you choose to run it in compatibility mode. Therefore, you need to use Money Plus Sunset Deluxe, as this one will definitely work (download link at the end of the article).

You can still use good old Microsoft Money even in Windows 8.1

If you’ve been managing your finances with the help of Microsoft Money, you should be aware that Microsoft discontinued all online services and assisted support for all versions of Money on January 31, 2011. (Microsoft discontinued sales of Money on June 20, 2009.) If you’re looking for an alternative program, Microsoft has made the Money Plus Sunset versions available as a replacement for the following expired programs: Microsoft Money Essentials, Microsoft Money Deluxe, Microsoft Money Premium, Microsoft Money Home, and Microsoft Money Business.

Download Microsoft Money Plus Sunset Deluxe for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 

  • I installed fine on 8.1 but every time i click on an option or try ti change screens it hangs for several minutes. Never crashes just takes minutes to change screens Unusable. Reinstalled several times. New money file starting from scratch still wont work right.

  • I have used Microsoft Money for years. All of my computers & laptops are Windows 10. Is there a Money plus software that I can download that is compatible with Windows 10. I don’t have the Windows 8 version of money plus anymore.

  • I have been running Money 2001 on my Windows 8.1 for two years with no issues until now. Whenever I enter a transaction a pop up error message appears “Microsoft Money has stopped working. A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly and will close” The program closes down. I have attempted to upgrade to Money Plus Deluxe and get the same thing. Any advice or suggestions appreciated

  • Hi there i just updated my Win 8 tablet, and now my Money Plus program is telling me it needs IExploer 6 to opperate. And of course I can not “go back ” to IE6 as it is not supported. I have never used this function and always done my update manualy. Is ther some way around this. I cant access Money Plus at all.

    • The old version (2004 Version) does work with 8.1. I do not know if it will work with 8. Have you tried 8.1? Sunset also works with 8.1. Sunset doesn’t work with 10 I can tell you that.

  • My goodness after suffering with Quicken from 2009, then 2011 I can’t make myself even bother with the half price Quicken 2015 Deluxe. I’ll take the Sunset Microsoft Money over ever changing, never improving Quicken.
