I wanted to restore a file from my Windows version of Quicken. I hit the radio button saying I'm not a new user and want to restore a file from the computer. I browse to the file and select it. Then I get a dailogue box saying:

Where is that file you are trying to open? Try copying to to Wine's "fake c:" drive (~/.wine/drive_c) and open it from there.
