What works

Installation and automatic update worked; though the update gave the appearance of being locked up, it did finish. Imported data from Quicken 2007, and software registration worked fine.  Web update worked.


Installation Instructions:

winetricks dotnet20
winetricks ie6
winetricks msls31
winetricks gdiplus

 - Libraries -> Override "msls31 native, builtin"


Install Quicken - expect it to take a while for the web update.  After installation, let it run and register. 

Improving Rendering Accuracy and Performance:


Close Quicken.  In winecfg, change OS emulation for Quicken to Windows 7.


Delete "c:\Program Files\Outlook Express" folder (if you wish to reduce hard disk waste).


Install CCLeaner, run its registry cleaner, and accept all proposed fixes.   Install Acrobat Reader 8. Run it, accept the license agreement, close the blank window and the program.


In winecfg tab, try moving the screen resolution slider to 105-120 dpi to make text fit better in the program, particularly dialogs and buttons.  (105 works well for me.)


Though some of this install seems convoluted, this method (including the use of CCleaner and Adobe Reader) works the best of any tested.


It is suggested that no font tricks be used, as they have proven problematic for this install.

What does not

It runs a bit slow, not annoyingly so.  It is more responsive under Windows 7 emulation rather than Windows XP.

The help file will give script errors, which can be stopped with the following in winecfg:

 - Libraries -> Override "jscript builtin, native"

However, this will interfere with some internal functions, such as the registration window.

Additional Comments

Internet Explorer 6 and .Net 2.0 are part of the minimum requirements for Quicken installation. The gdiplus override is to overcome rendering errors of the builtin gdiplus. The msls31 override is to prevent a "com error" crash. Do not install the Tahoma font, which will result in missing text in various tabs, buttons, and menus. If installed in error, delete "tahoma.ttf" and "tahomabd.ttf" in "c_drive:\windows\fonts\" to correct.

HowTo / Notes

Other versions of Wine

I tested the above with WINE 1.2.1, and it worked as well.  The black banding did not happen in this version.

WINE 1.2.1 proved to be problematic in the end. I have not tested with any other 1.2.x version.

The above instructions work with WINE 1.3.8 - 1.3.28, but i have been too lazy to rewrite the instructions for each of them individually.

I personally have had font problems with any version higher than 1.3.28, again too lazy to pursue a fix.

WillMaker and Wealthbuilder

Some download packages of Quicken include WillMaker and Wealthbuilder.  Wealthbuilder works great with the same install configuration as Quicken.

WillMaker may crash on startup, see the WineHQ instructions for WillMaker 2010 for a workaround.

Eliminate black bands on bottom of dialogs

Add the following to your registry: (per procedure given at the FAQs)

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver]

Installation tips from Quicken 2013 that may be helpful


  • vcrun6 msls31 and gdiplus all seem unnecessary, and in fact gdi seems to significantly slow down Quicken.   Microsoft fonts, Internet Explorer 6 or higher and .Net 2 or higher seem to be all that's needed with wine 1.6 or higher.
  • Manual and automatic updates can fail if host system is connected to the internet during original installation and during any automatic or manually downloaded & applied updates.  Try updating manually with host internet disabled.  Quicken automatic software updates should be disabled.
  • If running on a 64 bit machine, force 32 bit in wine via environment variable as some versions of wine have issues on 64 bit machines. (eg "WINEARCH=win32 wine ....")
  • If installing on a multiple core system, run all operations on a single core only as multiple core operations do not seem to be well managed under wine + Quicken.  (eg, "numactl --physcpubind=+1  wine ...")
