The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
I am using Quicken 2010 Premier. Installation, restore from backup (backup was made on a real Windows XP system), registration, browse accounts, password vault, graphs, reports, one-step-update (except for quotes) are working. Quotes may be separately updated using the Investing/Download Activity menu item.
What does not
One Step Update hangs on downloading quotes, as reported by other submitters. Workaround is to uncheck "Download quotes, asset classes, headlines and alerts" from the One Step Update Settings dialog. After doing this, I found that my next One Step update hung on the first account, but closing the update status dialog box allowed it to complete successfully. Subsequent updates worked OK.
What was not tested
Features other than those listed in "What works".
I installed Wine 1.3.16 on my Mac using OSXWineBuilder.
Prior to installing Quicken, I blew away my ~/.wine directory, and then used winetricks to install dotnet20, gdiplus, and ie6. I did a separate install that also included fontfix and dotnet30, but I couldn't see any difference in the results. So I don't think that fontfix or dotnet30 are required.
Quicken installed correctly running the installer executable directly from the mounted CD-ROM. No need to copy it to hard disk.
I needed to install XQuartz in order to get Quicken's fonts to render correctly on Mac OS X. With the stock Apple X11, many of the text strings were unreadable.
I used the winecfg "Graphics" tab to set screen resolution to 105 dpi. This allowed text strings to better fit into various dialog boxes.
Performance on Wine is slightly slower than on my native Windows XP system (both it and my Mac have similar CPU's and RAM), but performance on Wine is very acceptable.
I did not see any differences between Windows XP and Windows 7 modes (as set by winecfg). I did all my testing in Windows XP mode.

Quicken 2010 Install via WineBottler

Installed Quicken 2010 on Mac OS X without any problems using WineBottler. Followed the instructions here by checking the box next to each of the programs listed in the steps and the program did the rest automatically. Didn't need to do anything with DirectX. The internet updates work and the program (as far as I can tell) runs just as it would in Windows.
Tried the same install with PlayonMac and had many problems with functionality. Internet updating never worked and, when attempted, would permanently crash the program, forcing a reinstall every time.

I know this is a newbe question, but Step three is mixing me up
does this refer to the Quicken installer.exe? if so why do we repeat this step at the end, and if not what does it refer to?
Thus far my only issue is that Quicken 2010 home and business doesn't have internet access, and any time I click on something that needs it, ie one step update, or quicken.com it crashes the application.
Error message on run.
