I used WineTricks to Load VCRUN2005 sp1 and GDIplus I started from a fresh system. GDIPlus is not required, but provides a cleaner graphics experience.
Installation proceeded smoothly. Creating a new data file functioned, however, the speed was slow and there are a number of refreshes. To bypass registration, I used the following trick from the Crossover site: "...click the Online menu and then (while holding left-Shift and left-Ctrl) click One Step Update. It will notify you that you will no longer be prompted for registration." Online account access worked through Ameritrade. Reports printed properly.
What does not
Attempting to open an existing 2008 H&B data file created under windows resulted in an error that the file was from a later version of Quicken. Some files form earlier versions work hit or miss.
Online update failed with the error "The update could not be applied because some Quicken components are not closed." After exiting and restarting wineserver, I was able to apply the upgrade.
