Just a quick note for those who are interested in getting the accounting
package Quicken running under Freebsd 6 using wine, it may work with
other installations as well but I have not tried it but others may like
I am very new to this so it all I have done will no doubt be considered
as quick and dirty by some but it worked for me and I am tickled pink.
Firstly, trying to run setup.exe didn't work so I copied the install
directory of Quicken into the same relative position under "Program
Files" in wine from my windows system.
I then copied the "Quicken.ini" from the windows system "windows"
directory to the same directory under wine.
After having still no luck and lots of file not found messages I did a
bit of searching and found some messages that said something about
putting the needed files into "windows/system".
So I started from the first error message, found the file mentioned in
that error meassage and placed it in the wine "windows/system" directory
after which the vast majority of error messages dissappeared and by a
process of trial and error found out which other files where needed and
also put them into the wine "windows/system" directory and hey presto,
So finally, the files that I needed to copy into the wine
"windows/system" directory are:
mfc42.dll, iprof32.dll, q_encutl.dll and genclib.dll.
The last "q_enclib.dll I had to copy from my windows system as I could
not find it elsewhere easily, after which it worked.
It was not perfect and I have yet to test it but it does at least run.
So for those who want to run Quicken under Freebsd or perhaps other
similar systems, I hope this little bit helps.
Cheers for now,
