    Have installed Windows 10 upgrade. Microsoft Money Sunset worked fine with Windows 7 & 8 & supposedly compatible with Windows 10. However, when I try to open Money I now get error message "Money requires Internet Explorer 6 to function properly. Please reinstall IE 6 so these components can be added." I had already installed IE 11 & made it default browser in preference to Edge, & have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Money but same error message.

    Other programmes working fine in Windows 10. Money worked fine with all IE versions subsequent to IE6. Wondering if Edge somehow imposing itself on Money rather than letting IE in? Seems impossible to uninstall Edge.

    Any ideas?

    Not good. We rely on the Money desktop software program. I hope it is resolved quickly.

    I have exactly the same problem! I am wishing that I hadn't upgraded now.
    I hope that there will be a fix soon!

    Yes, I also can't open Microsoft Money in Windows 10. I have all my checkbook stuff there and I need it.
    It said I need to reinstall components from internet explorer 5 to open it.
    Please help.

    I'm getting the same error as well but I found a solution.

    Follow the steps.

    Open Registry Editor (RegEdit).(USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.)
    Navigate to the following registry key:

    (64-bit Windows)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
    (32-bit Windows)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

    In the right pane, look for Version registry value.
    Modify the value date to 9.11.10240.0.

    DO NOT CHANGE ANY OTHER VALUES. Even a small error in the register can have a profoundly bad effect.

    (Thanks to the poster who specified the 32-bit info. I've been running 64-bit Windows for so long now I totally figured everyone else is running 64-bit Windows too. =))

    Have you tried using Compatibility Settings on the EXE rather than changing the registry?

    I tried compatibility mode, but it doesn't resolve it. The registry hack did.

    My issue now is that the downloaded transaction files (e.g. QIF files) crash Money when I try to import them.

    I changed the registry key (for version, svcVersion and W2Kversion) and rebooted. Still the same issue - could not load as it is looking for IE 6. Help !!!

    Could someone explain where and how you get to this REGEDIT thingy to do the modification. Thanks.

    Answering my own question and for the benefit of others who are not very computer savvy, you press the Windows button on your keyboard and the r button, at the same time. You can then type RegEdit. I have just done the mod and Money has loaded and is working, perfectly. Quite why Microsoft killed this product is quite beyond me. I have used it for years to keep track of my bank accounts.

    Thanks killertunes for passing on your knowledge but please remember, some of us need every step laid out. :)

    Type the word Regedit in the area on your taskbar that says "search the web and windows" hit enter
    Then follow the steps from Killertunes:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
    In the right pane, look for Version registry value.
    Modify the value date to 9.11.10240.0.

    Hello and thanks for the advice, worked first time, only thing is now the dates are american format rather than the english. Can you advise how to change back to the Date/Month/ Year that I had before the Windows 10 upgrade?

    Thanks again for the Help
