Using wine's Windows XP version, all the features I've tried work, including the quicken pdf printer.
This includes: installing the app, running qw.exe, manual data entry into a checking account, app preferences, help system, QIF export, changing font in checkbook register and printing.
What does not
The worst thing I can say is that the default font (Tahoma) looks ugly on my LCD monitor. Some of the buttons are light gray, but don't be fooled into thinking they are disabled/unclickable. They work just fine.
What was not tested
I did not test any internet features, including app update from Intuit web site, or banking statement download.
I did not attempt to register the app with intuit web site. Intuit disables some internet features after a couple years (to force you to upgrade.)
Use winecfg's default of 'Windows XP' for 'window version', not Windows 7, and force a 32-bit prefix. This was the only app in the .wine directory. First I ran: WINEARCH=win32 wine winecfg Let it install mono if it wants to, then exit winecfg. Then run: winetricks dlls corefonts gdiplus I mounted the cdrom, changed to top directory of cdrom and ran: wine install.exe The installer runs cleanly with no issues. When prompted to Get Updates, I declined by clicking Next. At final screen, I unchecked "Launch" and clicked Done. To run the app, I use: wine start 'c:\Program Files\Quicken\qw.exe' My real Windows installation of Quicken had been updated, so the cdrom version refused to open my current data file. I renamed wine's 'Program Files\Quicken' directory, and copied over the entire directory tree from my real Win7 machine. The app then successfully opened my current data file.
