What works

The installer works if .net 2.0 is pre-installed.

I am able to get the program to launch if I install without google desktop support and install a few winetricks before installing quickbooks:
#winetricks vcrun6 fakeie6 msxml dotnet20 winxp

What does not

Quickbooks appears to not be able to connect to the database server at this point. When I try importing a company file or starting with sample data I get: 

"Error: -6123, 0    QuickBooks is trying to access the company file but cannot contact the database server."


What was not tested

Everything else...

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

I will be looking into this more tomorrow but I wanted to post my current findings and see if anyone else has anything to add. Does anyone happen to know what database server quickbooks uses?

HowTo / Notes


  • Run "winetricks -q dotnet20 msxml4"
  • Run installer, choose not to check for critical updates during installation.

This gets things started in Wine 1.6-rc5 but has not been fully tested and does still have errors.
