I am trying to install VMware Horizon client 5.4.3 using Wine in my Fedora 29 system. When I am opening with the .exe file with Wine its opening and promoting to install .Net 4.5 version after I press Install it's exiting automatically from the installation process. Below is the output in the terminal. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Use WineTricks to install .Net 4.5. If the application still doesn't install or work afterwards then most likely you're out of luck and this application can't work under Wine.

Lastly, Fedora 29 has long been unsupported (since 2019-11-26) and features a very outdated Wine release. I strongly recommend upgrading to Fedora 32.
