QuickBooks Pro 2001/InstallShield errors
I'm trying to switch my family over to GNU/Linux, but one major problem is QuickBooks, financial software that my dad uses extensively (it's sort of a higher-end version of Quicken). If it were me I'd just make the effort to learn GnuCash or some such, but you know how it is...
So I've tried to get it running in wine (and I'm a reasonably experienced wine user). Things are complicated by the fact that we have an ancient 6.0 CD, and a 2001 *upgrade* CD. 6.0 installs and runs fine (after some quibbles about temp HD space). When I run the upgrade, after clicking through all the "nexts" it gives the following error in a message box:
Unhandled exception Error Number: 0x80040706 Description: Object reference not set Setup will now terminate.
QuickBooks 2001: Setup failed to run installation: (0x8000ffff)
edit: One more thing, the winehq page suggested manually copying dcom95.dll into the wine folder, which I did but it didn't seem to affect things.
Some stats: Debian etch; wine 0.9.30 from the winehq repository.
