Amazon Chime on Linux via WINE

Installing Amazon Chime in Linux was attempted with WINE 2 in a 32-bit Wineprefix. We use a distinct Wineprefix to avoid messing up other currently working software using WINE.

This Amazon Chime on Linux install procedure is not currently working!

  1. Set Windows 7 under

     env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime WINEARCH=win32 winecfg
    
  2. make a temporary copy of mscoree.dll

     cp ~/.wine_chime/drive_c/windows/system32/mscoree.dll ~
    
  3. install .NET 4.0

     env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime winetricks dotnet40
    
  4. copy from a working real Windows 7 install (perhaps in a Virtual Machine) the file c:\Windows\System32\mscoree.dll to ~/.wine_chime/drive_c/windows/system32/ This is because of dotnet40 workaround causing

    Executing rm -f /home/rollo/.wine_chime/dosdevices/c:/windows/system32/mscoree.dll Using native override for following DLLs: mscoree

  5. try to install Amazon Chime.

     env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime wine Chime.4.0*.exe
    

Amazon Chime Linux WINE error

Upon running

env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime wine Chime.4.0.7762.exe 

I get complaints over missing mscoree.dll. Seems from a casual search this involves TODO work on dotnet40 in WINE.

I tried in winecfg Builtin, then Native and that didn’t work either, nor did copying back mscoree.dll into c:\windows\system32
