Amazon Chime on Linux via WINE

The best choice for Amazon Chime Linux users at this time is the Chime Web app

Installing Amazon Chime in Linux was attempted unsuccessfully with WINE 4. Use a distinct Wineprefix to avoid messing up other currently working software using WINE.

Amazon Chime on Linux WINE is not currently working.

Set Windows 7 under

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime WINEARCH=win32 winecfg

Install .NET 4.0 before .NET 4.5

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime winetricks dotnet40 corefonts

Install .NET 4.5. “Cancel” when it asks to repair .NET 4.0

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime winetricks --force dotnet45

Install Internet Explorer 8, avoiding error:

Can’t recognize ‘ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache’ as an internal or external command, or batch script.

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime ~/winetricks ie8

Try to install Amazon Chime.

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime wine Chime*.exe


Upon running

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime wine Chime.4.17.9059.exe

err:module:fixup_imports_ilonly mscoree.dll not found, IL-only binary L"InstallHelper.exe” cannot be loaded 005c:err:module:attach_dlls Importing dlls for L"C:\users\owner\Application Data\Chime\InstallHelper.exe” failed, status c0000135 005e:err:module:fixup_imports_ilonly mscoree.dll not found, IL-only binary L"Chime.exe” cannot be loaded 005e:err:module:attach_dlls Importing dlls for L"C:\users\owner\Application Data\Chime\Chime.exe” failed, status c0000135

Seems from a casual search this involves TODO work on dotnet in WINE.

I tried in winecfg Builtin, then Native and that didn’t work either.
