Installing Quicken 2012 Home and Business on Fedora 16, x86_64
Note: Not all the steps may be required (like msvcrt setting and installing ie6) but Quicken now works so no incentive to test again. Please provide feedback if you decide to avoid ie6 installation or some different settings.
Much improved Wine makes Quicken now install out of the box. No need to use winetricks preparation. Simply create a new wineprefix and run the installation.
After installation, manually running offline update patch worked well.
App crashed on the first run with references to mscoree, which points to .Net Framework requirement. Hence I installed .Net Framework 20 (dotnet20) that I had from previous installation with winetricks. Simply run "wine dotnetfx.exe".
Run "wine qw.exe" from the installed directory or use q4wine GUI. As usual, using a virtual desktop is necessary in order to display the File Open (and possibly other) dialogs.
Once inside the program, remove the registration prompt by holding Ctrl + Shift keys and then selecting Tools -> One Step Update.
