Several people have reported to me that Intuit dropped their earlier
intellectual property protection scheme last year. And, I have
installed TurboTax on my system using Setup.exe on the CD. The system
has been rebooted since without any difficulties.
It is still not running, though, probably due to my lack of familiarity
with wine and to several years absence from doing anything at all with
Windows software. (I haven't addressed any Windows operating system
setup parameters since W95.)
