Importing from Microsoft Money Plus Sunset Deluxe (free download.)

Hi and HELP!
I have been using Microsoft for balancing my checking and savings accounts for years. Yes, merely as a checkbook ledger to balance those accounts. Sunset Deluxe keeps crashing, maybe time to get rid of Microsoft apps. Does anyone know which Quicken app would let me transfer Microsoft Money Plus Sunset Deluxe backups into which app so I can continue to keep a checking and savings ledger? Please help.
Thank you.
Rich.

    Quicken is now a subscription program.  One of the nice things about it is that as long as your subscription is current you will always have the latest version of Quicken.  Another nice thing about it is that the various Quicken for Windows editions are all the same app.  Which edition you subscribe to determines which features in Quicken are turned on.  You can also upgrade or downgrade at any time and just pay for or get credit for the difference in subscription costs.
    One of the things some subscribers don't like is that if the subscription is allowed to expire then there will be a banner reminding you to renew that will take up about 25% of the screen and it cannot be turned off.  All editions except for Starter, however, can continue to be used manually after the subscription expires.  Once the subscription for Starter expires, if it is not renewed, it becomes read only.
    If you have not already done so, I suggest you review the edition comparisons at https://www.quicken.com/compare
    It sounds like Starter might be edition you would want because you are not using it to manage investment accounts.  You might want to consider starting with Starter and if you find that it is not meeting your needs you can upgrade to Deluxe at any time.  Also, there's a 30-day full refund policy so if you find that it is not meeting your needs you can get a full refund if it is within 30 days of when you bought the subscription.
    As far as conversion from MS Money to Quicken goes, you might want to read the following Support article:  https://www.quicken.com/support/archived-how-do-i-importconvert-my-microsoft-money-work-quicken-windows.  They do caution about converting from MS Money now because MS Money was not designed to be used with Windows 10 and Quicken is a Windows 10 program.  But if I were you I'd still try the conversion process...just make sure to keep a backup of your MS Money data file in case something goes wrong.

    I suggest you download and install the free Quicken 2013 Deluxe, apply the Quicken 2013 Release R12 Mondo patch, create a new Quicken file (select File > New Quicken File...), and import the Money file (select File > File Import > Microsoft Money File...).
  • Thank you for suggestions.
