What works

It installs right in 64bit wineprefix using offline installing and installed .Net 3.5, 4 and 4.7.2 (See extra comments)

What does not

Online installer doesn't work (Hangs downloading)

Uninstaller doesn't work right

It doesn't run .Net apps if you don't install .Net Framework 4.0 (Complains about Framework 4 not installed), and 4.7.2 (Error with mscoree)

Tested with game osu!, and with 4.7.2 runs, but with 4.8 not runs.

Workarounds

Only installs if using offline installer and have the other .Net installed (See extra comments)

You have to have mscoree and mscorwks set as Native only

What was not tested

Run something more than Microsoft .Net Framework Verifier

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

It can't install using online installer, you have to use offline installer

I used wine 64bit prefix

If only install .Net 4.8, it installs but not works, then, my steps:

Set mscoree and mscorwks as Native only (Second I don't know if neccesary)

I installed

-.Net 2.0 (Win XP) - And tested with success

-.Net 3.5 (Win XP) - And tested with success

-.Net 4.0 (Win XP) - And tested with success

-.Net 4.7.2 (Win 7) - And tested with success

-.Net 4.8 (Win 7) - Install only if the rest of .Net installed, and it's somewhat "trial and error". If 4.7.2 is not installed, it hangs. Not run game tested

HowTo / Notes

Get winetricks!

Install winetricks (more details here) to make easier to configure the Wine prefix:

$ wget 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks' -O /usr/local/bin/winetricks
$ chmod +x /usr/local/bin/winetricks
Automated installation through winetricks

Last update: 2020-05-02


As usual, create a new Wine prefix (for most applications, it's better to set its own prefix):

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet wineboot --init

If Wine prompts for installing Mono, click Cancel.

Install .NET Framework (and optionally install corefonts):

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet winetricks dotnet40 corefonts

Use dotnet40 to install .NET Framework 4.0. To install another version of 4.x series, change it to one of the following list:

dotnet45   to install .NET Framework 4.5
dotnet451  to install .NET Framework 4.5.1
dotnet452  to install .NET Framework 4.5.2
dotnet46   to install .NET Framework 4.6
dotnet461  to install .NET Framework 4.6.1
dotnet462  to install .NET Framework 4.6.2
dotnet47   to install .NET Framework 4.7
dotnet471  to install .NET Framework 4.7.1
dotnet472  to install .NET Framework 4.7.2
dotnet48   to install .NET Framework 4.8

... And so on. For example, to install .NET Framework 4.5.2:

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet winetricks dotnet452 corefonts

If this doesn't work or you need to install a version not supported by winetricks, try a manual installation (explained below).

Manual installation (Step 1)

Start with a new Wine prefix:

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet wineboot --init

Try to install .NET 4.0 through winetricks:

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet winetricks dotnet40 corefonts

If it success and you need to install a higher 4.x version, go to Step 2 (next How-To). If it doesn't work (very unlikely) keep reading.


Uninstall wine-mono from your Wine prefix:

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet wine uninstaller --remove '{E45D8920-A758-4088-B6C6-31DBB276992E}'

Change reported version to Windows XP, then download and install .NET 4.0:

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet winetricks winxp
$ wget 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/5/A/95A9616B-7A37-4AF6-BC36-D6EA96C8DAAE/dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe'
$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet wine ~/dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe

Open winecfg dialog:

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet winecfg

Go to "Libraries" tab, add a new library substitution called "mscoree" and set it to "Native (Windows)". Close the dialog by clicking OK.

Manual installation (Step 2)

Change reported version to Windows 7:

$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet winetricks win7

Now you can download and execute the installer for the desired version of .NET (install only the highest version you need):

Verify .NET Framework installation using .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool (Microsoft)

Last update: 2019-01-06


To verify .NET Framework installation(s) you can use the .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool from Aaron Stebner (Microsoft) which checks for proper installation of .NET assemblies and registry entries:

$ wget 'https://msdnshared.blob.core.windows.net/media/2018/05/netfx_setupverifier_new.zip'
$ unzip netfx_setupverifier_new.zip
$ env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/winedotnet wine ~/netfx_setupverifier.exe

Select the .NET Framework version you want to verify and evaluate the log file manually if verification failed.

fixme:shell:URL_ParseUrl failed to parse ...

URL_ParseUrl FIXME messages on console when running/installinĀ­g .NET apps are harmless and can be safely ignored. Example console output:

fixme:shell:URL_ParseUrl failed to parse L"mscorlib"

cabextract is required for installation
by The Depp on Sunday January 5th 2020, 11:06
It should be noted that winetricks requires cabextract to install dotnet. Unfortunately, if using the command line to install dotnet via winetricks, it does not even complain about the missing cabextract; only the GUI process does (which opens when starting winetricks w/o arguments).

cabextract can be installed from your distro's repository.
RE: cabextract is required for installation
by Invictus Tiberius on Monday January 6th 2020, 7:08
cabextract is not required since winetricks does not extract any file on its own when running a dotnet setup. In fact, dotnet48 can be manually installed just by installing dotnet40 first, overriding mscoree and switching Windows versions.
