  Thank you for looking at this for me. 
  I have updated to 1.2 rc6 and for a while I thought that it was ok. Did you
install just the money manager by itself or also load one of the partner
programs? I use the "business money manager" and "final accounts". Switching
between one and the other is done with a pair of tabs "MM" & "FA" at the top
right of the page. 
  Just now I opened MM and opened one file then another about 8 times with no
problem. Then I close MM and opened FA and it came up with a window saying
"file so and so is in use" and the file-> open window shows (in use) next to
that file so I cannot get in to it.
   I have checked that the file in question was set to read-write as the MM
help file said that could have got corrupted. 
   The work around that I have come to is a bit crude but does the job. I used
the file manager to find the file on the .c drive that is said to be "in use",
copied it to another location and deleted the original. Then I opened the MM
program and got a warning that the file could not be found. Closed the program
and copyed the file back and it then opens ok. 
  I can live with that!  This was the last program I need to use that was
holding me having a windows installation some where around so i'm glad to get
rid of that.   
  If you try and can get the same fault then please let me know. I'll up date
my other machine asap. This might not be solved but at least there is a work
around and they are good programs. I used the dos one first in 1987.
