Are we to guess what happens when you start it with wine ?

cd to the program directory first. Then start wine(dbg).

Just say c(ontinue) here.

Notice "First chance exception" ? It means that the exception did occur,
but has not been handled by the exception handler yet.

You only see this because you are running winedbg. Use the command
"pass" to pass it to the exception handler, keep pressing "pass" until
you get something else then a first chance exception.

You seem to have installed quicken under w98? Copying dll's is probably
not enough, registry information might be important, other files that
where installed in the x:\windows directory. 
Try to install under wine.
