Running Crossover Windows 7 as Windows 10 - Steam


Im trying to play Ori and the Will of the Wisps on Mac.

The problem is that steam will only install in a windows 7 bottle. How can I trick steam or the game to thinking the game is running in windows 10?

I have MacBook Pro Catalina with the i9.

Appreciate all help.

If you click on the bottle, then select "Wine Configuration", you will see (on the Applications tab) a dropdown to select the version of Windows.

Crossover 20 gives me 3 options, Windows 7, 8, and 10, for installing Steam. Default selected one is 7, but I wondered if it was best to go for 10 for most future-proofing, or maybe 8 for best chance of being compatible with both old and new games?
