Some intrepid MYM users have successfully run MYM under Vista and Windows 7.  In some cases, using the 64-bit versions of the Operating System.  For more information, visit the MYM Forum on this web site.

The domain has been in use for years, mostly hosting a small forum in the background. It's been difficult to do anything with it, as like most folks, life gets in the way sometimes. Due to renewed interest in the forum, and the fact there are still people using Managing Your Money for DOS, I have decided to put a little more life in here. Eventually I would like to add some content that refers to other sites containing MYM information, perhaps regenerate some of the great tips and tricks by others, and hopefully we can pull in some folks who might be able to help resurrect the software.

MYM is a DOS based application that runs completely on it's own, as long as there is an operating system underneath it. That is to say, it was originally designed for DOS systems such as MS-DOS, DR-DOS, etc. However, it will still run on Windows 3.xx, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows XP and we believe on Windows Vista (though I've not seen it tested yet). It can also be run on Linux using a dos emulator or other virtual machine architecture. The program is installed and runs completely out of its own directory, these days called a folder; it does not rely on any Windows Code, DLL's or other such encumbrances most other Graphic User Interface programs rely on from the Operating System.

One hugely important fact however, when running MYM on any new operating system, one must be careful to open it only once. As an OS such as Windows or Linux will allow you to open an application more than once, it is a simple task to accidentally open MYM multiple times. This can result in a very corrupt database. On this site and in the forum, you can find information on how to avoid that, by using a batch file to create a simple keyfile lock that will prevent you from opening more than one instance of MYM at any time.

Anyway, stay tuned for more information, articles, etc.

If you have previously registered in the forum, then you are already registered for the site. There isn't anything for registered content yet, except the forum, which is available to browse if not registered.

If you have not previously registered, please feel free to do so and post in the forum. We'd be happy to have you.

If you have any difficulties please write admin at mymdos dot com and I will try to get back to you.
