Rather than start a new thread........

I am trying to install Entertainment Partners MovieMagic Budgeting 7 (http://www.entertainmentpartners.com/Content/Products/Budgeting.aspx) in Wine in Ubuntu 10.04 (will check Wine version later but it was downloaded through the Ubuntu software centre yesterday) 

This seems to install fine, although with a few graphical glitches, and then runs through the activation process however I cannot complete the Activation Wizard at the final step, which throws an 'Unexpected Error, Code -50003' within the MovieMagic program.

Its not a crash, as I get sent back into the final page of the Wizard but it cannot complete the activation step. 

The illuminating response I received from the company was, "At this time, the products are not supported on any dual platforms similar to WINE and Bootcamp. The programs are designed to operate on one stand alone system."

If anyone can assist me in diagnosing the problem and getting this sorted that would be marvellous!
