When you installed Quicken previously, it was installed into
(presumably) ~/.wine/drive_c. When you set the WINEPREFIX, Wine will use
~/.ies4linux/ie6/drive_c. Since you presumably have not yet installed
Quicken there, it does not yet run.
If you have in fact installed Quicken there, then it may be that it
won't run in the ies4linux configured directories.
However, before doing anything else, have you taken a look at:
And what version of Quicken are you using?
