HowTo / Notes

HOWTO Install

To install from the CLI use the msi installer. Example: wine msiexec /i Amazon+WorkSpaces.msi 

Remove the following file to stop crashes on progarm start: ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Amazon Web Services, Inc/Amazon WorkSpaces/vchan_plugins/pcoip_vchan_remoteprintclient.dll

In some cases you may need to install install VB Runtime 2013 this can be done with winetricks `winetricks vcrun2013`
