Personal finance software for the desktop, web and mobile
Installation and basic functionality (the things that I do) all work. That includes the download and installation of program updates, manual changes, downloading transactions from banks and investment brokers, downloading stock quotes and performing data backups to disk.
What does not
There are prerequisite tasks that must be performed using the winetricks utility in order to allow the Quicken installation to complete successfully.
The Quicken window is not particularly "well-behaved" in my Gnome desktop but these are minor inconveniences in my view:
2021-12-29: Quicken R37.62 displays two pop-up windows during startup that say, "Failed to resolve function RaiseFailFastException in KERNEL32.dll." This due to the fact that this function is not implemented in Wine. Ignoring this error message and clicking "OK" does not seem to cause any problems running Quicken. See bug #46155 for a discussion of what may, or may not, be done to fix this problem.
To successfully install Quicken 2020 Premier one must perform the same steps that Paul Sands outlined in his entry for Quicken 2017 Deluxe:
$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.quicken-wine winetricks -q --force dotnet461
$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.quicken-wine winetricks settings ddr=gdi
$ cd /path/to/installer/file $ 7za x Quicken.exe $ perl -pi.bak -0777e 's/NOT REMOVE="ALL"InstallPDFDriver/NOT_REMOVE="ALL"InstallPDFDriver/' "DISK1/Quicken.msi"
$ WINEPREFIX=~/.quicken-wine wine DISK1/Setup.exe
What was not tested
Advanced functions like bill paying and synchronizing personal financial data to the Quicken web site were not tested. These are functions that I don't use.
