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

You closed this error without waiting for my answer? really

And did you read everything in my error message?
I'll quote you an important part ...
"Android Beta App Can Open My Database in Game Store"

I have been using desktop application version 1.4 since April.
However, the old Android application can no longer open the database, while the Android beta application can still open it.

You need to update a standard Android app with beta app enhancements to your database access code.

claytonpereira20: Unfortunately it looks like your database is corrupted.

How can you recover the data?
Unfortunately there isn't much that can be done about the corrupted file itself. But Money Manager Ex saves backup copies in the same folder. Look for the file with the most recent date and try opening that.

What caused the corruption?
Several possible causes of a corrupt database
  • Money Manager Ex crashes while saving data. If this is the case, take a note of the exact steps that led up to the crash. Better yet, see if you can find a series of steps that reproduces the crash and report the bug so it can be fixed.
  • The disk lost power or got unplugged while Money Manager Ex was saving data.
  • The hard disk itself is failing
