What works

Install in a 32 bit winebucket with IE8

Some pull down menus work.

What does not

Cannot navigate through Q&A which essentially makes the tool useless.

Without IE8 (winetricks IE8) installed it just crashes (tool closes) when you try to navigate using green buttons in page. With IE8  I get "Message from webpage - Runtime error: Object doesn't support this property or method ...." and none of the Q&A is visible, just whitespace.


Workarounds

What was not tested

Never go beyond basic install - so pretty much everything was untested.

Import Not Working
by chris319 on Monday January 2nd 2017, 19:10
Using Wine 2.0-rc2 under Linux Mint 18.1. Program installs and runs OK but does not import previous year's return. Had to install TaxAct under Windows to import last year's return, then saved the new return. Was then able to open saved return under Wine.

Hey Chris,
Once you get past the import issue were you able to step through the Q&A ok? I'm having zero luck with that on Wine 2.0 and wondered if you had any special set-up tricks you'd care to share? I'm on Centos-7 so a big difference there.... but still.
Thanks
Phil

Hi Phil -

I recently upgraded to Wine 2.0 final and nothing has changed.

I do not use the Q&A feature of TaxAct. I go directly to the forms and fill out Scheds A, B and D. as well as Form W2 and various 1099's. I tried accessing "Basic Info", "Life Events", etc. under Wine and nothing happened when I clicked on them. I do not know if the E-file function works but I am able to access the E-file center.

I strongly urge you to join the bugzilla and report your issues there. I'm told the developers actually do read the bugzilla, and I received a response to the bug report I filed on the import function, so they do see them.

I installed TaxAct under Windows just so I'm covered, but I would like very much to get TaxAct working under Wine so I can get off of Windows.

Best regards.

Hi Chris,
Appreciate that feedback, sounds like I am seeing the same thing you are then and that is good to know.

Thanks,
Phil
