installing & running quicken

Asked by DanBatchelder on 2008-10-04

My intention was to set up a dual boot system with both windows and ubuntu. What I ended up with is just ubuntu on my computer. I was using Quicken for managing my finances. I went to quicken for help/they only have software for windows or a mac. I have all of my data files on a memory stick. I would like to run Qucken as before. Is that Possible?

Maybe through WINE http://www.winehq.org/ but why not check out gnucash. It's a native Linux program similar to quicken.

I downloaded Quicken, WINE and installed both. quicken will not allow me to restore my data file. do you have any ideas on what to do to fix this?

Jim Hutchinson (jphutch) said : #3

I don't. Sorry. I don't use quicken. It could be an issue with wine or maybe how it "sees" the files. Are you able to browse to them? If not, then that is probably the issue. If you can but they refuse to open then it may be an issue with how it runs in wine. Sorry, but I don't really use wine.

You should try googling with something like "quicken to gnucash".
Certainly you aren't the only one trying the bridge to Linux having quicken files in his pocket.

Wine indeed can accomodate Quicken efficiently if set up in the right way.
Look here:

Crossover Office (a commercial configurator for Wine from Codeweavers) supports it with no doubts and this proves that Wine can do that (also without Crossover Office).

Hope this helps too.

Can you help with this problem?
