Amazon Chime on Linux via WINE

less than 1 minute read

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.

Amazon Chime on Linux is not currently working.

  1. Set Windows 7 under
    WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime WINEARCH=win32 winecfg
  2. install .NET 4.0
    WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime winetricks dotnet40
  3. try to install Amazon Chime.
    WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime wine Chime*.exe


Upon running

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_chime wine Chime.4.7.8314.exe 

err:module:import_dll Library mscoree.dll (which is needed by L”C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\mscorsvw.exe”) not found err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L”C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\mscorsvw.exe” failed, status c0000135 err:service:process_send_command service protocol error - failed to write pipe!

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.
