I can't get Skyrim to launch in steam. Steam works just fine, but when I hit the "Play" button in the Steam menu, it does the "performing first time setup" everytime then doesn't launch the Skyrim launcher. Any suggestions?
I also was able to play before, but all of a sudden it just stopped working. I've tried re-installing both crossover and Skyrim and have tried almost every combination of options under the graphics tab in the Wine Config.
could this in any way be related to .NET 3.5 SP1, which stopped working in Crossover a few weeks ago? Skyrim seems to need it, after all. I can't launch Skyrim via Steam either, because it can't install/use .NET 3.5 SP1. Or is this bug related only to Linux?
I don't really think CrossOver can be made the scapegoat for all Yosemite problems. It is rather well known that cutting edge OS versions can create really bad problems and Apple is no exception. I wouldn't touch Yosemite with a barge pole until at least 10.10.3 or 4.
Have you tried the experimental build from Silvius link above?

Hi all to the above: just wanted to give you some hope because this application is running under Crossover Version 14.0.3 (184.108.40.206476). It's also been running in all the previous versions for me when I've fired it up (which is quite regularly). Usually I give each bottle a quick check after an upgrade so this has been consistent for me. Yes the .Net installer seems to run at every start up, but doesn't appear to affect the game.
My only issue with this game under Crossover is that I need to run the graphics at high preset and turn antialiasing off and and ansiotropic off. Game has run flawless for me with those settings and the that's with all expansions and the high res graphics mods (three). If I run it at higher settings it will lock up on me at irregular intervals usually totally within about 10 mins.
So although I can't offer any suggestions for the not starting at all, I can say it will run solidly under my configuration. I also only run it in Full Screen, but that's purely because I'm not a fan of running games in windowed mode.
I used the Crosstie install both times I've installed it.
iMac 27" Late 2013
GeForce GTX 780M 4G
Yosemite through upgrade from Mavericks.

not sure what did it, but the game is working just fine for me now. Have you tried running it again? Not sure what fixed it for me, but I can provide some details of what is installed into my Steam bottle if needed.
I was having this same problem. CO 14.03. OSX 10.10.2. I ended up putting a lower resolution setting than what it recommended (which was the highest) and it worked. It didn't automatically close! Which is at least something. So maybe give that a try.
For staff members, it was closing automatically (within 1 second) at the recommended and highest resolution. So that's something to look into.

We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
