Additional Comments

This is what I did.  In the following comments, aej is my account name.  This will need to change for your situation:  

Created a new 32 bit wine prefix

  $ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32_money99 winecfg

    In applications tab, set Windows Version = Windows XP

Using Winetricks

  Install a font: corefonts

  Install a Windows DLL or component: ie8, ie8_kb2936068

    Renamed ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/windows/system32/iexplore.exe to iexplore.exe_bak 

    Created link to ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe named iexplore.exe in ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/windows/system32/

Install Microsoft Money 99

  Copy CD money99 folder to ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/users/aej/Downloads

  Copy ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/users/aej/Downloads/money99/setup contents to ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/users/aej/Downloads/money99

  $ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32_money99 wine cmd

    > c:

    > cd \users\aej\Downloads\money99

    > acmsetup.exe /T money99.stf

      When prompted where to install, use C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money

    > exit

After install

  Created link to ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Money/MSMONEY.EXE named MSMONEY.EXE

  in ~/.wine32_money99/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Money/System

This command will run Microsoft Money 99

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

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 i386

Add repository key and repository

sudo mkdir -pm755 /etc/apt/keyrings
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/keyrings/winehq-archive.key
sudo wget -NP /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ #replace 'jammy' with your Ubuntu version
sudo apt update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
cd /usr/bin
sudo wget
sudo chmod +x winetricks
cd ~
# 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 winecfg
winetricks -q corefonts ie7 win7

In Linux Terminal:

mv ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/iexplore.exe ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/iexplore.exe_bak
ln -s ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/iexplore.exe ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/iexplore.exe
cp -r MONEYSOURCEFOLDER ~/.wine/drive_c/users/johndoe/Downloads
cp MONEYUPDATESOURCEFOLDER ~/.wine/drive_c/users/johndoe/Downloads
sudo cp ~/.wine/drive_c/users/johndoe/Downloads/money/MONEY99/setup/* ~/.wine/drive_c/users/johndoe/Downloads/money/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 ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Money/MSMONEY.EXE ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Money/System/MSMONEY.EXE


Using this command, MS Money can be run directly.

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