QuickBooks Pro 2001/InstallShield errors
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).

QuickBooks 2001: Setup failed to run installation: (0x8000ffff)

Some stats: Debian etch; wine 0.9.30 from the winehq repository.
