What works

The same as my predecessor LS650V did: I only tested what I use. Account entry, balancing, reports, Investments.

The Online functionality of MS Money 99 is long gone - the current developments of banking interfaces didn't get backported into this version of Money. You will have no chance of setting up an online access to your own bank accounts.

The download of current stock values is also switched off since many years ago.

What does not


What was not tested

I have the installation running in an Oracle VM VirtualBox machine, so I can't say anything about the graphics environment on a native Linux installation. But I expect it to have no impact on this Wine setup - why shouldn't it work? MS Money is using standard Windows interfaces.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Other
  • Driver: open source

HowTo / Notes

How to install and run MS Money 99 Version 7.0

General How-To

Install Wine

For this how-to, I'll pretend that the username in Linux is johndoe

Firstly, we have to activate the 32 bit architecture:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Add repository key and repository

wget -nc
sudo apt-key add winehq.key
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb groovy main' #replace 'groovy' with current Ubuntu version
sudo apt update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
sudo apt install winetricks
sudo reboot

Prepare the environment for MS Money - using a separate wine prefix

When winecfg is installed, you don't need to install MONO when the popup appears. When the installation asks for GECKO, click YES and let GECKO install automatically.

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32_money99 winecfg
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32_money99 winetricks

Do the following in winetricks:

Install a font: corefonts

Install a Windows DLL or component: ie8, ie8_kb2936068 (using pragmatic answers when IE8 asks for its settings)

Install ODBC drivers: ? It is not necessary to have ODBC drivers installed when running MS Money. But if they are not installed, the installation routine of MS Money will have some complaints.

In Linux Terminal:

mv ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/windows/system32/iexplore.exe ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/windows/system32/iexplore.exe_bak
ln -s ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/iexplore.exe ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/windows/system32/iexplore.exe
cp -r MONEYSOURCEFOLDER ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/users/johndoe/Downloads
cp MONEYUPDATESOURCEFOLDER ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/users/johndoe/Downloads
sudo cp ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/users/johndoe/Downloads/money/MONEY99/setup/* ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/users/johndoe/Downloads/money/money99
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32_money99 wine cmd
cd \users\johndoe\Downloads\money99
acmsetup.exe /T money99.stf
# Install to c:\Program Files\Microsoft Money

After installing MS Money

ln -s ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Money/MSMONEY.EXE ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Money/System/MSMONEY.EXE


Using this command, MS Money can be run directly.

env WINEPREFIX="/home/johndoe/.wine32_money99" wine "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money\System\MSMONEY.EXE"
