Is ist possible to run portable Applications
Hi.

I would like to know how I can start my portable windows applications without installing it?
Is it possible or does it only work with Installation?

Thanks
Yes, you can. Whether it works well or not will depend on the compatibility of the program. But you can create a bottle in CrossOver, then open the bottle's C: drive, and copy the files into the C:\Program Files (or C:\Program Files (x86)) folder. Then from CrossOver, you can click on Run Command and navigate to the executable. You can optionally set up a shortcut for next time when you are browsing for the program.

Please Note: This Forum is for non-application specific questions relating to installation/configuration of CrossOver. All application-specific posts to this Forum will be moved to their appropriate Compatibility Center Forum.
