I have an application called "Visual Link Spanish" which, unfortunately, must be installed as "sudo", otherwise I can't click on the buttons needed to install the "Visual Link Spanish" Spanish lessons.  Is there a way to install an application in Crossover Linux as root?

Let me clarify UP FRONT that I am not wanting to run Crossover Linux as root, ONLY install this one application as root so that I am able to click on the buttons that are neede to install it.

How did you arrive to the conclusion that you need to install that application as root? It does not make much sense to me. From an application's point of view, when running in wine, it's always running with admin rights.

Does this have a demo anywhere so that I can play with it?
