I am interested in submitting a Windows application, but it's for a product that is no longer being produced. Also, the web site with information about this product has been shut down, meaning I am unable to provide the URL for this application. What do I need to do to submit such an application? Also, if I obtain the proper information, how do I provide it?
Yes, you can do this -- there is a 'company string' available of
'unknown/out-of-business' if you can't find any reference at all to
a defunct company's historical work, but, a lot of the time you may
find something on wikipedia about the app/software company, and it's
okay to submit such links in these cases ; any reference is better
than no reference at all...
..elsewise, you treat the app exactly the same as you would any
currently available app...
No, you don't submit the app itself, no app gets sent to codeweavers.
You just submit a request for an app webpage to be created, that's
dedicated to that app's disposition in crossover...ie; how it runs,
how to install it, medla ranking, screenshots... etc etc

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
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.
