What works

Just about everything. I've been using MS Money 2004 for 8 years, have a fairly large .mny file, all just works.

What does not

"Tools" menu item (which would normally be links to MSN internet resources) is empty. Backup to floppy (well, it is 2012 now!)

Workarounds

What was not tested

Backing up to and restoring from .mny backup file.

Additional Comments

UK version of MS Money 2004. Used winetricks to install MSXML3, corefonts and IE6 before running MS Money installer. MSXML3 and IE6 absolute necessity for MS Money. I am using 64 bit Linux Mint 13 (based on Ubuntu 12 LTS), which installs both 32 and 64 bit wine. IE6 and Money 2004 both failed to install in 64 bit architecture, so I needed to make sure my wine prefix was set up as 32 bit with WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

2015-04-20 Admin note: the following steps were extracted from a test report filed for Wine 1.4.1 and may not be relevant to current Wine.


A few steps are required before launching MS Money's "setup.exe", but then the setup runs perfectly and the installation succeeds as expected.

1) Do a "export WINEARCH=win32" to make sure Wine runs in 32-bit mode.

2) Use "winetricks" to install these 3 packages: - "ie6" - "msmxl3" - "corefonts"

3) When Money runs for the first time it will ask, “do you have an Internet connection?” Answer “no” to avoid online content that will be useless and outdated anyway.
