Selected Test Results

What works

- Using winetricks, install into the wrapper corefonts, Tahoma, MSXML 4.0, IE7, vcrun2005 (Visual C++ 2005 Runtime Libraries), and comctl32.dll .

- Install MS Money Sunset.

If you install MSXML 3.0 most things work except the Portfolio Manager does not. MSXML 4.0 fixes that. Comctl32.dll fixes the alignment of the subtotals on the bank accounts page.

In the past installing IE6 was required, now that actually causes Money not to run.

Additional Comments

Sometimes when closing Money it hangs and must be force-quit. No other harm that I can tell.

To get around bug #32880, use winetricks to install ie6, then install MS Money.
Lessons Learned - Wine5.7 and MS Money Plus Deluxe Sunset

I wanted to retest and confirm my previous report for others, and determine what actually does what.

Wine5.7

Winetricks - install MSXML3 (required), MSXML4 (fixes Portfolio Manger), IE7 (required) - Note Money doesn't run with IE6.

Install Money. Should be functional at this point. You can create a new money file, or browse/open an existing one.

At this point all should be good except on the bank accounts screen. Account type subtotals will be misaligned. If you winetricks install comctl32.dll it will fix the alignment, but it will break File,Open a new file / File, Backup. Backup will still work if you do a File, Close.

Winetricks - CoreFonts does not seem to be required, nor does VCRun2005.

-------------------------------------------------

If you run MSMoneyQuotes from Gaier Software, Winetricks install DotNet45.
