Run Simply Accounting Using Wine?


Has anybody had any luck running Simply Accounting in Wine? I can get it to load and it starts up but when I attempt to load a file it locks.

Running Debian 6.0.

Thanks,
JP.

According to the wine Application Database (the place to look at before installing any Windows software) Simply Accounting has serious issues with wine.

So I would recommend to you look for a Linux alternative or to use Windows.

Yes, I read those reports. As they were rather old (the latest is 2008 IIRC) I was hoping maybe somebody got it to run and had not entered it in the Wine database.

It should run fairly easily I would think. It is just a simple database program.

If it were up to me I would switch to Gnucash, but the better half does the accounting.

JP.
