Quicken install on Mojave

Post by hnrose » Wed Jul 31, 2019 1:24 pm

I just installed wine per the directions in https://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/

I am now trying to follow the workarounds for Quicken Deluxe 2017 (https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... &iId=37579) and can't figure out what I'm supposed to do here. Workaround 3 says:
3.Extract Installer to address the failure of the PDF Print Driver
1. cd /path/to/installer/file
2. 7z x Quicken_Deluxe_2017.exe

I cd'd to the location of the entire Quicken Deluxe 2017 install folder. I don't see anything like Quicken_Deluxe_2017.exe there or in any subfolders. Closest thing is in DISK1 subfolder which contains Quicken 2017.msi.

Any idea what to do ?

Thanks.

Skip the first two steps and continue with step 3:
3. perl -pi.bak -0777e 's/NOT REMOVE="ALL"InstallPDFDriver/NOT_REMOVE="ALL"InstallPDFDriver/' "DISK1/Quicken 2017.msi"

I did that and it just returns. I then proceeded with next step:
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine.quicken wine DISK1/Setup.exe

and there were many errors and wrong version of Quicken was launched and aborted.

Is there a file in the DISK1 directory with the name Quicken 2017.msi.bak?
and there were many errors and wrong version of Quicken was launched and aborted.
Could you explain "the wrong version of Quicken was launched"?
Did Quicken gives you an error/ exit code when it was aborted?

At end of install, when it says Start using Quicken now, launching displays/starts Quicken Rental Property Manager 2017 rather than Quicken Deluxe 2017 but it appears to be settle on Quicken Deluxe 2017.

There are numerous errors in wine - too numerous to detail.

Quicken Deluxe 2017 appears to be running although many of the screen displays get blacked out.

Also, how do I start quicken the second time once installed ?

Thanks.
