Porting Process Overview

We often craft a custom solution for each customer, and we will be happy to do the same for you. However, here is an outline of some basic steps.

The first step is often with you. You know your application better than we do, and are better able to judge how well (or not) it runs under CrossOver. That's why we provide our free evaluation copies of CrossOver — so you can quickly install and evaluate your software under our product. In many cases, though, you'll need a deeper evaluation of why something isn't working under CrossOver and what the costs of fixing that might be.

Whether we need to get a cranky application to install, or evaluate what/why/how much it will cost to port an application, we have a porting package that will meet you evaluation needs. If your software meets our basic porting criteria we move forward to porting your Windows software.

This is where the heavy lifting occurs; the hard work associated with making the application run under CrossOver in a commercially acceptable way.

Ongoing Support
Your software may change. Wine (and CrossOver) will change. Mac and Linux may change. Keeping your application running smoothly into the future requires planning and forethought. We work with our customers to create custom licensing and support solutions that will meet their ongoing product needs. For almost all service engagements, we like to start with an introductory phone conversation, in which we arrange to have both a sales representative and a technical person from CodeWeavers available.

Please contact James Ramey, VP Sales, or call 651-523-9302 to arrange an initial consultation.

Basic Assessment

Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch. Our basic assessment only answers the question of if your software could be ported. We’ll spend an hour taking a look at your Windows software to determine if it can be ported to your platform of choice. We will also do a checks and balances of sort to make sure your software meets our basic porting criteria.

Ideal for Windows software that works right out of the box with CrossOver and needs little to no development work. A custom video tutorial will be created to show your Mac and/or Linux customers how to run your Windows program with CrossOver. Additionally we will provide a deal code for your customers to purchase CrossOver at a discounted rate, track CrossOver sales, CrossTie downloads and market your landing page with online advertising as well as reaching out to our database of over a half a million Mac and Linux users. Let us showcase how well your software works on Mac and Linux with CrossOver.

Standard Assessment

Our Standard package assesses the initial amount of work that’s needed to port your Windows software.  We'll spend up to 10 development hours to assess if the software can be ported, identify Windows licensing restriction(s) that may be present and determine what next steps will be.

Professional Assessment

With our Professional package we’ll spend up to 20 hours assessing if your Windows software can be ported, analyze the work that needs to be done to successfully port your software and identify any Windows licensing restrictions. We will then provide a quote for the port, and a Proof-of-concept of the software program supported on Mac / Linux, if possible.
