HowTo / Notes

Lessons Learned - Wine7.0 and MS Money Plus Deluxe Sunset

Edited on 15 March 2022 to reflect the fixed ie7 verb in winetricks and the latest stable version of Wine 7.0.

Money requires a 32bit prefix. Install wine-gecko, Wine Mono Runtime and Wine Mono Windows Support.

Ensure the latest winetricks is installed. 

Set winetricks to Enable Silent Install. Install with winetricks ie7, msxml3, msxml4, vcrun2005, vcrun2008.

Note: Money isn't feature complete with IE6/8.

Install MS Money Deluxe Sunset. After install is complete replace
mnyob99.dll in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money Plus\MNYCoreFiles

These files are available at the following link:  Money Downloads

All should be good except on the bank accounts screen. Account type subtotals will be misaligned. If you 'winetricks install comctl32.dll' it will change the comctl32.dll in winecfg libraries to comctl32.dll mative. This will fix the alignment, but it will break File,Open a new file / File, Backup, account balancing and various other popup windows. Change comctl32.dll back to builtin if/when you need these functions.

Basic Steps for Money Deluxe Sunset Edition under Ubuntu
by Matha Goram on Thursday April 6th 2023, 16:28

I made a mess of my wine installation on Ubuntu 22.10. In my ignorance I installed 64-bit version and then Money. I tried to recover by re-tracing the steps I had omitted to make wine32 functional. Naturally, Money would launch but then hang. I ended up deleted wine completely.

I need help to start again this time with the recognition that I will need wine32 too.

What are the correct steps (for a newbie) for Ubuntu 22.10 to run Money under wine-7.0 (Ubuntu 7.0~repack-8)? I don't need the exact instructions. I can get those from this site and elsewhere but please enumerate the steps so that I can launch Money in the following manner:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine wine msmoney

Hi Matha,

Any chance maybe you didn't install multi-arch support in ubuntu? If you don't have that then wine won't have the i386 packages it needs.

Hello Nathan,

Thanks for your observation. What is the most basic command to check my mistake (during installation for multi-arch support), please?

Try running this in your terminal:

dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

Check out this page for reference:

Also, refer to this info as well:

If this helps, then you might need to uninstall and reinstall wine so that it pulls the i386 packages.

Good luck,
Hangs when selecting "Balance this credit card account"
by John Nunez on Monday March 14th 2022, 2:56
A new sub-window for balancing appears but is unresponsive and I am forced to kill the application; on the console I see

0168:err:sync:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 010AA550 "?" wait timed out in thread 0168, blocked by 010c, retrying (60 sec)

Is this a known issue? Does anyone know if there is a fix? Are others able to balance c/card accounts?

Thanks for any suggestions.
RE: Hangs when selecting
by John Nunez on Monday March 14th 2022, 2:58
Just to add, seems to happen when I try to balance any type of account, not just c/card.

by N. Giard on Tuesday March 15th 2022, 2:48
Do you have comctl32.dll set to Native or Builtin?

I don't have the native dll file installed so my subtotals don't align on the accounts page, but any of these type of pop-up windows work for me.
RE: Hangs when selecting
by John Nunez on Tuesday March 15th 2022, 3:12
Thanks for replying. I've tried with both dlls, and I get this problem. BTW, it's ONLY when I select the option to balance an account that I get this issue, other pop-ups work ok. Sorry to trouble you, but can you confirm that when you select the option to balance an account (and that option specifically) that it works without issue?
RE: Hangs when selecting
by N. Giard on Tuesday March 15th 2022, 3:25
Yes, confirmed it works fine on my previous wine prefix built when Wine7.0 was released, as well as a new wine prefix I just built to test the ie7 fix in winetricks.

I updated my notes on how to configure the prefix, maybe try to rebuild it? Also, do you have the modified mnyob99.dll copied into your money installation folder?
RE: Hangs when selecting
by John Nunez on Tuesday March 15th 2022, 6:49
Thanks again. I've tried rebuilding the prefix. If I replace the mnyob99.dll, and try to run Money, I get a pop-up box "Before you can use Money on this computer, you must run the Setup program on the Money CD or in the directory where the Money files were copied.", i.e. Money won't run at all. I've never been able to use this alternative dll.

... and as I type I've just noticed that I'm actually using Money 2005 UK, not the US Sunset Edition. So sorry but it appears I've been wasting your time.

It does appear to be an issue with the version I'm running:

Thanks again for your help.
