I cannot update Microsoft Money 2005

If like most people, you have bought and purchased a copy of Microsoft Money 2005, you will have noticed that you may be unable to run a software update. You can however create a self contained installation of Money 2055 which contains the 1105 patch. In order to do this, you will need the Money 2005 CD and a version of Money which has been installed and successfully patched (which is the same regional version).

Step 1: Create a folder in which to create the new setup source. For example, create a 'Money2005Update' folder on the desktop.
Step 2: Show hidden files on your computer by navigating in Windows Explorer to Tool->Folder Options->View and select both the 'Show hidden files and folders' and also untick 'Hide protected operating system files" option and then press OK (instructions for non-Windows XP may vary slightly here).
Step 3: Copy the files from Money2005 CD to the folder you created in Step 1.
Step 4: Copy the entire contents of the MnyCoreFiles folder from an updated installation of Money (you will find this folder in c:\Program Files\Microsoft Money 2005). You may see folders called MnyCoreFiles.NEW and/or MnyCoreFiles.BAK - these can be ignored.

The files from the MNYCoreFiles folder should be pasted into the 'money' sub folder of the folder created above (i.e. Money2005Update\money).
Replace the files when prompted

Step 5: When completed, the contents of the Money2005Update folder now contains an installation of the Money 2005 program with the patch integrated into it.

Finalisation: You'll need to burn a CD with this folder on it. When you need to reinstall, you can do so from this new CD without relying on the Microsoft servers to deliver you the 1105 patch update.

Important: This method should ONLY be used for your personal use - running this for a third party would most likely be a breach of the terms of your license to use Money, and is possibly illegal. The aim is to allow those who legitimately own Money to continue to use their Money file.
