Before I do something incredibly stupid, like I did in hard crashing my 
Windoze server because of a virus (IRS search miss-key, go figure), and 
the boot partitions seem to be non-repairable even though all data and 
programs are still on disk.  (And yes, I know stupid of me to not have a 
current backup).  I still have legacy apps with data stored internally 
that are not extractable without Windoze and without a reliable backup 
per partition, per drive, I am not going to touch those drives until I 
can find a way to recover everything.

Can GnuCash 3.0 be run under Wine on Ubuntu Xenial?  3.0 has features 
that I need.  It wants to install on only my Windoze dives which I will 
not do until I have all of the data extracted. I have been unable to 
build 3.0 from source code.  (yes I know Mint is a better choice but; 
until I recover all of the data from Windoze I am not changing, Ubuntu 
is up and running, Hallelujah!!!!!!!!, on it's own dedicated drive).

Second Question:  My laptop still has Windoze 10 home, so can I install 
GnuCash 3.0 on it and use it with Windoze GnuCash Version 2.6.19 data 
files on the server files which are still accessible via Ubuntu file 
share with Windoze 10?  Are the data files compatible?  I have 20+ years 
of data that I definitely can not afford to loose (think divorce).
