Hello everyone,

I've met the same issue as Phototaker several months ago.
Since the update to Money Manager EX - Version : 1.3.3 (DB v.7) I'm not able to open my file where I manage my daily expenses.

Whenever I try to open this database a pop-up is showing :
At opening of the database
- Incorrect password
or
- tentative to open a file which is not database

I've never set a password to this protect this file. This is the same file that I used to edit on Money Manager for so long. It became very annoying.
Note : My OS is windows 10 64bits. I tried to open it using another windows10 laptop and on my android smartphone, same issue.

Could someone help solving this issue ? Or at least help me extracting the content of the attached file so that I can restart from scratch ?


Best regards,
Baower

Do you have a file backup from before upgrading 1.3.3?

MMEX normally keep a backup of files each time it exits in the same directory as the DB file

Yours should look like Comptes Ana.mmb_update_<date>.mmb
