CrossOver 11.2.0 It works fine .. actually quite well .. but you must use the crosstie link from here: com-codeweavers-crossover-crosstie:install?crosstie=http://www.codeweavers.com/bin/c4p/4225 then follow this tip to make it display anything at all: http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/browse/name/?app_id=4225;tips=1 then remove the two folders in the registry here : Goto regedit as suggested previously, but delete these keys: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes as listed in this thread 2/3 of the way down : http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/browse/name/?app_id=4225;forum=1;msg=123137 this will prevent the crash that happens aprox 10 seconds after launch.. it then works quite well! few crashes and sometimes graphical anomalies .. its a shame that the crosstie can't/has not be made to apply these registry tricks for mac out of the box!
