Quicken and wine

Postby donec on Sun May 25, 2008 11:40 pm

When I try and install Quicken as user with wine nothing happens. However! If I try and install Quicken as root with wine it works, but my user can't access it. I installed Paint Shop Pro 7.04 and it works without any problems.

Running any Windows based program as root is not really a good idea.

Edit: I removed what I had written here when I realized it won't work for a Windows/Wine app.

I agree totally but I tried that just to see if it would work and it did so now I need to find out why it won't work through user.

I tried to install quicken via the terminal (don't know if I used the right command) and here is what the terminal reported.
