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
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?

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