Can't install.
Posted 2010-06-17 09:08
Hia, this is my first time trying to use crossover.  I downloaded the GW client of their website, and now it's not letting me install it in crossover.  If I look at the "guildwars.exe" it says (Open with crossover) but if I open it nothing happens.  Also, if I'm in crossover and I try to install it, in "select an application to install" it doesn't show up, and if I choose "Will install from Macintosh HD > Applications > Guildwars.exe", then it just brings me back to "select an application to install."

Any help would be appreciated :) xo

Thank you for your posting...

In order to install Guild Wars you can go to the menu option from CrossOVer which indicates install Windows software. Once you do click on Guild Wars in the left text box and select which client installation you wish to use. CrossOver will download or use the Executable you just downloaded either way should be fine.

Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you!

I myself had a problem like this. I think it is because the new install requester. Just go from top to bottom threw to fields and choose the installation file, and the bottle. Then it should work.
As for Guild Wars just use the preconfigured option in CrossOver Games, instead of downloading the client. It works just fine.

@alexandragurl: Could you be using CrossOver Pro or Standard rather than CrossOver Games, by accident?  You should be using CrossOver Games to install and run Guild Wars, and it knows how to download it.

(Note that a license for CrossOver Pro entitles you to register and run CrossOver Games, but they are still separate programs.  You don't have to separately purchase CrossOver Games, but you do have to separately download it.)
