What works
Everything works except downloads.  Tested on Xubuntu 12.04 and Bodhi Linux 2.4.  

What does not

Downloads and "One Step Update" functions fail.  Failure is apparently caused by a thread deadlock on multicore CPUs. Workaround is as follows:

Install numactl, a program to restrict the number of CPUs available to a process:

sudo apt-get install numactl 

run Quicken using numactl to restrict use to a single processor.  Assuming you are running inside the default wine prefix, syntax is:

numactl --physcpubind=+1 wine "C:\\Program Files\\Quicken\\qw.exe"

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 ...")
