how uninstal Crossover 6.0.1 demo on Mac OsX leopard
Posted 2008-05-09 12:38
I installed crossover 6.0.1 on Mac Os 10.5 but now I want to uninstal it because I don't use it.

I put crossover in the trash and all the files that were in the system's librairy and in the library of my user account.
I emptied the trash.
Restarted my computer.

But when I right-click a file ".exe" I still have, in "open with" I always have the choice of selectonner crossover and it works. I can't run the .exe but crossover is in my dock and I have all his menu on the top of my screen.

What am I supposed to do if I want uninstaled crossover?

What you did should be good enough. Do you have another around, or does MacOS run it from the trash?

Drag the icon of Crossover off of your dock and it will disappear.

.exe apps are probably still associated with Crossover since it was the last program on your computer that could open them. When you install another program that can open .exe files (like Parallels or VMWare) those .exe files should re-associate themselves with the new program automatically.

Otherwise you can get info on one .exe, go to Open With, and (if possible) choose a program to open the .exe file with. Then click "change all" to make that the system-wide setting.
