Windows Auto Hide (taskbar) detected. May cause screen corruption. Disable before running?

Hi Rebels.

Recent purchaser of Crossover [WINE] for Mac. Tried to install a new Windows app. I get this alert before running. "Auto Hide detected". Windows taskbar auto hide is enabled. This may cause screen corruption. Please disable before proceeding. (continue? Yes or no)

Sure enough. the app is distorted on running and is frozen and non functional. The problem is I can find no options in the WINE configuration to disable auto hide of the Windows task bar. I have tried different Windows OS versions. No change. Bottle deletion and reinstall led to the same

A disappointing start. Crossover was attractive to me as an alternative to bootcamp, VirtualBox or Parallels running Windows 10. All of which will run the app in question. Any advice on disabling the alerted feature?

Your really not providing much to go off here.

What app are you having this issue with?

Why didn’t you verify this app was working using the trail before making a purchase?

This being the forums isn’t the place for support from CodeWeavers staff, you’d need go open a support ticket for this as explained under “Important Notice” when posting to the forms.
