    Quicken 2007 and Wine


    Well, after many hours spent searching through many forum threads and reading nearly the entire WineHQ site, I have found no way to run Quicken 07 in wine. The installer will run -up until it informs me that I do not have Microsoft's "High Security" package installed. I assume that this means that there is a dll the installer is looking for in relation to some kind of security update. Has anyone else tried this combination? I know that some earlier versions of Quicken WILL run on wine, but this one won't. My Windows machine has finally died a horrible death and I am loathe to return to another. I have way too much data invested in Quicken to switch over to anything I have seen so far ie kmymoney or gnucash.Any and all input very welcome.

    Why not just continue using an older version of Quicken? There couldn't be a whole lot of significant differences as far as it's essential functions go.

    Yes, that would be one option except that as far as I know there Are some problems opening my backup files with an older version. That and I don't have an older version to try anymore.
    that's life. I might be stuck with setting up a dual-boot. Yuck...

    Dual boot is not so bad. You might want to consider either running Windows inside a virtual machine like Xen or VMware. Another option might be to run it from Linux from within Win4Lin.

    Tried Crossover?

    I haven't tried that app myself, but
    CodeWeavers - Compatibility - View App - Quicken 2007
    says that the commercially supported Crossover flavor of Wine is starting
    to run Quicken. Give Crossover's latest free trial a shot.

    Codeweavers is a good company; a lot of the money they get
    from selling Crossover goes right back into improving vanilla Wine.
