Additional Comments

Setup a win32 prefix; set Wine OS to WinXP; use winetricks to install IE7 (IE6 doesn’t fully render html, IE8 hangs when trying to close Money), MSXML3 (required), MSXML4 (fixes Portfolio view), VCRun2005 and VCRun2008 (enables importing ofx/qfx statements); install Money Sunset Deluxe; after installation, replace mnyob99.dll in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money Plus\MNYCoreFiles\ (also required in Windows). 


If you want to fix Banking subtotals anomaly winetricks - comctl32.dll, set to native. This will however cause Money to hang if you click File, and any of the menu items that pop up a new window.

I also put MSMoneyQuotes.exe in the prefix to import currencies and quotes; works without errors.

Using Pocket Sense python scripts works as well. VCRun2005/2008 required to import statements.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

(2016-01-26)

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.
