Keeping installed Windows apps and give access to all users

Hi there, I have just installed CrossOver Linux Pro 7.1.0 on a system running Ubuntu 8.10 for x86.

This system is going to be the basis for a general use LiveUSB system, and also as a means of testing the waters for a full Linux migration. One of the prerequisites for the LiveUSB is the installation of MS Office 2007 for interns to use.

I have Crossover and Office 2007 installed already. However, as I understand it, the bottle containing Office 2007 is installed into my own home directory. I need it to be set up somewhere outside of the /home/user structure, so that any users of the LiveUSB system don't have to worry about logging in and not seeing Office. In essence, I need it installed to be accessible by any user.

Does anyone have any tips or ideas of how best to carry this out? I'd like to get a few more needed Windows apps installed into this bottle as well, and accessible in a similar fashion. Thanks!

I think what you need to read is this part of CX documentation ;

Have fun!
