Well, unfortunately, probably no Wine developers have Quicken 2004. It 
sounds like that is a problem new to this version of Quicken, since 
people with older versions have claimed to not have the problem.

I agree that nothing I have said will help you to get Quicken to work. 
Without having the program on my machine, I doubt that I would be able 
to debug the problem you are having. It may be possible that using a 
Windows native DLL for whatever generates the reports might help. But I 
have no idea what ones to suggest.

As a completely wild guess, perhaps it uses the richedit DLL (I don't 
know what the window looks like; it is just a formatted text window)? If 
that, then you might be able to use a Windows native DLL. And this is a 
case where you would create a config file and add something like (I 
don't really know which riched line would be right):
"riched" = "native,builtin"
"riched20" = "native,builtin"
"riched32" = "native,builtin"

You would of course need the corresponding real Windows DLL in your 
windows/system directory.
