EM CLient on Fedora 24 using wine not working.

I tried running EM Client in Fedora 24 using wine but it does not work. Any Tips? Thanks!

eM Client is officially meant only for Windows OS at this time, so there are no official tips to make eM Client work with Wine on any UNIX system.
Of course if any other users have some they are free to share and we will keep this thread open, though mind that officially this option is not supported.


I’m checking out Windows clients right now, but actually testing them out on Linux. :wink:

I checked the WineHQ database for eM Client, and the hints there helped me forward. Here’s how it goes:

ensure 32-bit Wine

export WINEARCH=win32

use a separate Wine home directory

export WINEPREFIX="$HOME"/.wine.emclient

initialize Wine directory

wineboot -u

install dependencies using winetricks

winetricks dotnet40 mdac28 gdiplus

install eM Client

wine msiexec /i ~/Downloads/setup.msi

to run the program

wine $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program\ Files/eM\ Client/MailClient.exe

Works for me. I only tested e-mail with a standard IMAP/SMTP account. Although, it does crash on copy/paste, which may be a wine bug. That was indeed already reported on WineHQ here:


Good luck,
