I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of CodeWeavers’ flagship product ‘Crossover Mac’ this week. The software is designed to allow applications from other platforms, primarily Windows, to run seamlessly on Mac OS X without the need for emulators or dual booting the computer which requires a restart and wasted hard disk space.
To say that the software achieves this is an understatement to say the least. During the testing of the program, I found all aspects of it to be pretty much flawless.

The first element of the program that needed testing, was naturally the installation and setup. As with the majority of OS X software, installation was simply a process of drag and drop into the applications folder. Registering the software was a breeze too. I simply had to register on the CodeWeavers website and then register the software using the same details.
So once your all set up and registered, you may wonder where the application has gone. All that is immediately visible is the icon placed in the selected folder, or on the dock whilst open. This is due to the discreet nature of the software. It pretty much stays out of your way, not even running until called upon. However, when you enter any optical medium such as a CD or DVD containing installation files meant for Windows, the application springs into life and loads the files in an extremely similar manner to the auto-boot process on Windows.
There is an almost endless list of software that is compatible with this software. The majority of regularly used programs will most likely be compatible with Crossover Mac. This includes anything from Microsoft Office to Call of Duty. For my initial tests of the software I decided to install Microsoft Office as I decided it would be a useful addition to my Mac as I haven’t developed a great taste for Open Office and haven’t yet bought a copy of iWork since recently purchasing an Apple Mac Mini.
The first stage of installation was fairly lengthy. This was completely due to the fact that it was the first install I had carried out and therefore the system needed to install required fonts and such. After the first installation, any further software I attempted to install was carried off without a hitch. To be honest, this isn’t a major problem anyway. Proceeding with the installation, I was confronted with the usual interface I had found with Windows. The installation process from this point onwards was as quick as any Windows installation.
The trend of native speeds continued throughout use of the application after testing. The program boots with the natural Windows interface. It is not altered to fit the Mac themes which could be taken in either a positive or negative way. Positive due to the fact that many applications wouldn’t be suited to the alterations and may become muddled or difficult to navigate. Negative due to my opinion that the general Mac interface is more attractive than the Windows equivalent.
Running and using the program was as simple as ever, for the most part as fast as running on Windows. I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the switch over considering the application was never intended to be used on this OS. In my opinion, the Mac version of Microsoft Office was never up to scratch, so to use the full Windows version was a pleasant change.
After successfully installing and running Microsoft Office 2007, I moved on to install Call of Duty 2. I dare not try the latest version of the games, not because they are incompatible, but because I have the basic Mac Mini so running the games may not be smooth enough to carry out a fair test of the Crossover Mac software. Suffice it to say, the installation and running of the game was nigh on perfect and I was able to run the game on high settings without any noticeable lag. For the gamers amongst us who do have a Mac desktop or even a MacBook Pro laptop, this software also supports platforms such as Steam.
Overall I have found many a use for this excellent software and is a real alternative to running Parallels Desktop 5 that means you don’t need to boot to a separate operating system. I also have an old Linux machine and am tempted to use the Linux alternative of this software to run the same programs. The software comes in various packages. One for general software such as Office, and one for games. However, the Crossover Mac Pro option possesses both, but carries an extra cost.

A: The most recent version of CrossOver is compatible with the following OS:
MacOS: Yep, see Requirements
Linux: CrossOver should run on most Linux distros, but is currently tested and optimized for: Ubuntu, Mint, Arch and Fedora
Chrome:: (not actually sure what we’re doing with Chrome at this point) Terraria calamity mod download mac.
A: We highly recommend downloading the 14-day free trial to see if your Windows application will run with CrossOver with your setup. During the free trial you will have access to the full version of CrossOver, not a demo version.
A: Open CrossOver and click “Install Windows Software”. Search for your Windows app in the search bar. If your app does not show up, this just means that no one has given it an official rating or created a “recipe” for it yet -- you can still try to install it by clicking “Unlisted Application …” from the drop-down menu.
A: CrossOver (and Wine, the open-source code that does most of the actual translating between your Windows app and your non-Windows operating system) are an infinite work-in-progress. Windows is constantly changing and updating and expanding, and the Windows apps you want to use are also constantly pushing updates. We work hard to provide as much support for as many applications as possible, but as long as Microsoft continues to employ over 100,000 people and continue to update its code on a massive scale, we will not reach 100% compatibility.
A: Depending on your OS, we have workarounds.
CrossOver can be unlocked with your CodeWeavers credentials, your email and password used to login. If your credentials fail to register crossover, you can try another approach. Completely quit CrossOver Download the license files from your account. Once the files are downloaded go to the following directory using finder Go to Folder >
~/Library/Preferences> Move the license files into that folder location.
~/cxoffice/bin/cxregisterfrom the command line. If you are still having trouble, check out the more detailed support page for MacOS or for Linux / ChromeOS.
