OK, so I wouldn;t know how to address the issue at hand then. If I run 
Wine without a config file, and if that default and unchangable, method 
of using wine won't correctly run the Quicken 2004 installer, then what 
are we supposed to do?

Again, the CXO installation correctly runs the Quicken 2004 installer 
and installs the program. The program runs, but has a problem. I want to 
test the newest version of Wine to see if the problem has been addressed.

what's a poor boy to do?
