Money 2005 QFE#2 for UK Users (1105 patch)

What is the QFE#2 for the UK users? Maybe an obscure title, but it's really good for Money 2005 UK users. It's the downloadable patch which brings a retail copy of Money 2005 to the 1105 update.

This is the update you need to reopen your Money files, should you need to reinstall later on, such as installing Money on a new PC. This is something that I've had a lot of emails about recently.

Should you reinstall your Money 2005 version, before you open your file, install this update as well and you won't have any issues. If you don't install this update, you'll find that you can't open your file.

If you're using Money 2005 and have no issues, then there is no need to install this update.

The update can be found on the Microsoft Download Site. [Edit 3/3/2013, Microsoft have removed this, please visit Article 649 on my main website instead]

Some of the articles on will be updated to feature this update shortly.
